Managing Infrastructure Reform and Regulation
Junior Research Fellowship Position and PhD Opportunity
Investment in Power Projects in Africa
A one year position of Junior Research Fellow is being offered at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business to undertake research on investment trends in power projects in Sub-Saharan African countries with a focus mainly on private IPPs, Chinese supported projects and developments in renewable energy.
The Management Programme in Infrastructure Reform & Regulation (MIR) strives to be a leading centre of excellence and expertise for Africa and other emerging and developing economies. Based at the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business, MIR aims at enhancing understanding and building capacity in infrastructure investment reform and regulation, in support of sustainable development.
MIR’s main focus at present is in the electricity and water sectors, but growth is expected in gas, transport and potentially in telecommunications (for eg. our new partnership with Research ICT Africa). MIR works on three fronts, providing: executive and professional short courses; research related to the frontiers of infrastructure reform and regulation in Africa; and professional support and policy advocacy.
