IMG 20180609 WA0017 2MMUST and the University of Venda (UNIVEN), South Africa, have been enjoying good working relationship for the past 4 years. This has been enhanced through a collaborative Memorandum of Understanding, which has given opportunity to the MMUST Scholars, Dr. Eunice Kanaga Najoli, Dr. Lucy Mandillah and Dr. James Bill Ouda to be part of the UNIVEN Post Doctoral Research Fellowships (PDRFs) program.

Speaking of the Post Doc opportunity, Dr. Ouda said “this PDRF is a learning curve and an opportunity for candidates to cross-pollinate ideas and experiences between MMUST and UNIVEN”. He said that the program has enhanced his growth as a scholar by allowing him and his colleagues to conduct research and submit quality manuscripts in high impact journals. Hopefully, at the end of the PDRF program, they will leave UNIVEN as more refined and experienced scholars and share the same with colleagues at MMUST and beyond, said Dr. Ouda.
UNIVEN Director of Research and Innovation, Prof. Georges-Ivo Ekosse, noted that the postdoctoral training under the observation of an experienced supervisor expands research skills, develops independence and shapes career trajectories. The training program also balances research, teaching, professional development and post graduate student supervision. He also noted that the fellowship is potentially available for a period of three years with prospects of further funding.
