Opportunities are available to teach and conduct research at educational institutions and research centers throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

With 45 awards in over 25 countries there is diverse range of opportunities in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, from teaching cyber-security and digital forensics in Botswana to researching in science and technology in South Africa. There are also several awards open to all disciplines.
