Postdoctoral Training

Postdoctoral Career Engagement

Our postdoctoral (Postdoc) activities are carried out in collaboration with established institutions.  FIRAT provides a unique opportunity to postdoctoral candidates to engage with industries and relevant institutions of research in Nigeria and other African countries.  We realize the growing need for those who completed their doctoral studies to pursue additional research, training, or teaching in order to have better skills to pursue a career in academia, research, or any other field.

FIRAT structures Postdoc positions in such a way to keep prospective candidates inspired by research and topics of the projects of research groups contributing to the development of Africa in very unique ways.  We want the qualified individuals to continue working at the cutting edge of knowledge and make a lasting contribution to society through research.

Realizing that Postdoc positions are such exciting world to be part of, FIRAT provides enabling environment to ensure Postdocs are hugely motivated to see the idea of pursuing research as a path to making the world a better place. Postdocs are allowed to make a  long term plan to stay in research as this brings to them the skills and experience valued by many employers.
