The University of Dar es Salaam, in collaboration with the GAP research group, would like to invite interested and qualified candidates holding a graduate degree in Natural Resources Assessment and Management, Climate Change, Social Sciences and/or any relevant disciplines to apply for fully funded 2 Ph.D. positions under the GAP research programme.
The GAP research programme
GAP focuses on analysing how (de)centralized modes of governance influence the distribution and use of finance for adaptation during implementation, using a comparative study of Tanzania and Kenya. GAP’s overall goal is to provide evidence for how and by whom decisions are taken, and on what and where adaptation funds are spent. GAP is organized around 3 analytical components, each unfolded in a work package (WP), focused on: the financial architecture of adaptation finance in Tanzania and Kenya (WP1); the politics of adaptation finance in Tanzania and Kenya (WP2), and building North-South partnerships and capacity for scrutinising adaptation finance and make policy recommendations for how they may become transformative (WP3).
GAP is funded by the Consultative Research Committee for Development Research (FFU) under Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DANIDA).
The 2 Ph.D. positions are invited to contribute to the WP1 and WP2 of the programme.
General conditions for the PhD positions:
The deadline for submitting the application is 20th September 2021 at 12 noon (East African Time).
Applications should be sent by email with the subject title ‘GAP PhD application’ to the Director, Institute of Resource Assessment (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a copy to Dr. Noah Makula Pauline (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org). For access to a detailed GAP research programme description and more information about the PhD call, please contact Dr. Noah Makula Pauline.
