AFRAN-AJN Editorial Fellowships: Second Round of Applications

The African Association of Nephrology (AFRAN) and African Journal of Nephrology (AJN) invite applications from early- and mid-career AFRAN members for positions as AFRAN-AJN Editorial Fellows for 2021-2023. We are especially keen to consider applications from our female colleagues and colleagues from Francophone countries.

These Fellowships are non-funded positions for candidates with a strong research background. They offer the opportunity to work as part of the AJN editorial team and learn about the handling and evaluation of submitted manuscripts, and to interact with authors, reviewers, and members of the production team. Each Fellow will be supervised by a senior editor and attend meetings of the editorial team. Fellows will be involved in all aspects of the operation of the Journal and are also expected to contribute to the AJN/AFRAN social media platforms to promote the Journal.

Applicants must be AFRAN members who are paid-up and in good standing and who are no more than 15 years post completion of specialist training (in the case of clinicians) or 10 years post PhD (in the case of scientists).

A good research portfolio and evidence of training in research methodology is essential.
Publications in AJN and/or completion of peer reviews for AJN is a strong recommendation.

The applicant must submit the following documentation, in English, to Lethisha Harilall ( by 30 September 2021: An application letter highlighting relevant skills and expertise, a CV, and a senior colleague's letter of recommendation.
