Research Professional Development Programme

This DST programme aims to address the accelerated development of a group of outstanding scientists and research professionals.

Candidates must either have gained an MSc and be registered for a PhD, or are recently-qualified PhDs undertaking post-doctoral research, and specifically comprise those who are poised to contribute to the South African innovation platforms as identified in the National R&D Strategy.

Some of the programme’s specific objectives include leveraging innovation and research at Mintek and implementing science- and technology-related skills development; to support young scientists and professionals in basic and applied research; and to attracting and retaining young scientists and professionals of the highest calibre, in order to complement the influence of senior researchers on the current science and technology research system.
