Nkafu is Recruiting Research & Policy Fellows

With the support of Atlas Network, the Nkafu Policy Institute is very pleased to announce the recruitment of 
three (3) Research & Policy Fellows 

to expand its research portfolio and its engagement with policy stakeholders. The challenges facing Cameroon today and the Central African sub-region are extremely complex, requiring rigorous, evidence-informed research that promotes innovative and progressive policy prescriptions.

Nkafu seeks to expand its scholarly endeavors by recruiting mid-to-senior level researchers and creative thinkers to help it achieve its mission of advancing public policies that help all Africans prosper in free, fair, and democratic economies.

We seek policy experts with diverse backgrounds. We are particularly interested in the areas of economic policy, sustainable development, security studies, education and technology policy. Fellows may be appointed for a Full Time or Part Time basis.
