Research Fellows’ Program
As a research institute, TSI is offering opportunities for formal affiliation to post-docs for the purpose of research. This is an opportunity offered to faculty members to undertake research projects while continuing with their work at their various universities and departments. Successful applicants will be formally identified on TSI website and official publications as a “Research Fellow” (RF). As a private independent research institute, TSI generates all its funding through projects. Research Fellows are invited to generate research ideas and help design project proposals around their ideas. The ideas should fall within the broad mission and research interest of TSI, i.e. issues at the intersection of religion and society, topics in the area of inter-religious engagement/dialogue, Christian-Muslim relations/dialogue, Christianity and Islam in Africa, religion and gender questions etc. RFs will also search for potential funding sources for their projects. TSI will lend institutional backing and support to the project to enhance its chances of success and work with RFs to shape the proposal and to source for funding. Compensation for the RF’s time will be captured in the budget for the project with formal engagement after a proposal is approved for funding. Such an engagement will be on contract for the period of the project with possible extension depending on project opportunities.
