Academic & University Jobs in Africa
Economic growth is widely recognised as being achieved through investment in a highly skilled workforce, and in sub-Saharan Africa higher education is booming, with enrolments doubling between 2000 and 2010. This means that demand for teaching staff is high, creating great opportunities for academic staff who want to make their mark. Universities are also working hard to attract the best international research staff to publish top-quality work in esteemed academic journals. University standards are rising across the region: a Times Higher Education snapshot ranking of universities in Africa currently lists institutions from countries as diverse as South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, Morocco, Ghana, Egypt, Ethiopia and Cameroon in the top 30.
