South Africa and the Mediafrica post doc.

Last week the finals for the Mediafrica post doc was played: The four very qualified finalists were interviewed by the Recommendation Committee for the post. The position was announced in May, the deadline was in June and in August seven of the many applicants for the position were invited to submit a full application. Of these, four were invited for interviews. This was a difficult process – so many fine, very qualified young academians, and only one position. On the 20th of October the final decision will be taken. For the project it is not a dramatic point in time; they are all very qualified.
