PHD AND MSC. SCHOLARSHIPS TENABLE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DAR ES SALAAM

The University of Dar es Salaam, Institute of Resource Assessment, which is a partner institution in the BC5 research project, is pleased to invite interested and qualified candidates to apply for 3 PhD and 2 Masters Partial Scholarships under the BC5 research project.

The BC5 Research Project

Building Capacity to Crosslink Coastal Pollution with Climate ChangeBC5 is a strategic north-south-south collaboration between the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the University of Ghana (UG) & affiliated collaboration by University of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. BC5 addresses the thematic area “Climate Change and Natural Resources” under NORHED II. BC5aims at building knowledge on sustainable management of marine and coastal ecosystems and resources, strengthening & improving existing regional coastal research. Under this project research activities are parallel and intertwined with capacity enhancement in education through the establishment of field & experimental training & curriculum development on the combined impact of coastal contamination & climate change on coastal ecosystems in Ghana and Tanzania. BC5’s activities are based on the objectives set by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 14, Life under water, and other cross cutting relevant SDGs. Both Ghana & Tanzania lack crucial data and knowledge on the status of their marine environment. BC5 thematic focus is on the impacts of contaminants (i.e. plastics, e-waste, mining, (pesticides) and nutrients) from agricultural runoff, non-climatic stressors in combination with climatic stressors, on the marine and coastal environment.

Research Studies for the solicited 3 PhD and 3 Masters Students at UDSM will focus on either of the following Case Studies:

Case studies in Tanzania. Two main cases have been selected to study in Tanzania, based on their, accessibility, physical characteristics and social impact:

Case study A: The Mnazi Bay-Ruvuma Estuary -Mbanya regions:

This region starts at the border of Mozambique and is famous for its marine biodiversity. In this zone, the focus will be the perspective of the Ecological connectivity between Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) and the coastal zones. Selection of this coastal region is due to the level of their exposure to potential downstream impacts of the ABNJ. Any adverse developments and contaminants in the ABNJ may have a strong negative impact on the coastal resources and population of the Least Developed Countries (LDC) in East Africa. Tanzania is the most affected country due to its highly connected coastal zones to the ABNJ.

Specific areas of focus under this case study:

  1. Coastal pollution and coastal ecosystem management
  2. Climate change and socio-ecological systems of coastal resources
  3. Climate change impacts on the coastal ecosystem management
  4. Socio-ecological systems of mangroves under man-made and natural stressors.
  5. Nature based solutions for sustainability of coastal ecosystems
  6. Sustainability of mangrove ecosystems

Case study B: Dar es Salaam – Zanzibar – Pemba Island zone:

The region includes heavily populated Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar zones, where we will study human-made impact on the coastal ecosystem. Coastal pollution is increasingly becoming a source of concern in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. Coastal pollution including the untreated municipal wastewater discharged into

coastal waters and in some places directly onto coastal habitats, such as mangroves, is having serious impacts on the natural environment and potentially on the economic base that many of the islanders depend on. Deterioration of mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs creating risk to the livelihoods of several coastal communities.

Specific areas of focus under this case study:

  1. Coastal pollution (coastal erosion, land use change, agriculture, mining, including plastics and e-wastes, settlement, illegal fishing – dynamite fishing) and coastal ecosystems management and impacts analyses on the coastal ecosystem.
  2. Coastal pollution (untreated municipal wastewater – industrial and domestic). Effects on coastal habitats, such as mangroves (i.e. natural environment) and associated impacts on the socio-economic systems/livelihoods strategies (e.g. deterioration of mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs creating risk to the livelihoods of several coastal communities).
  3. Coastal mining (sand/soil) & implication on ecosystem management
  4. Sea surface temperature (SST) and its implications on the fisheries, marine/coastal ecosystems and livelihoods of coastal communities

General conditions for the PhD and MSc. Scholarships:

  1. The PhD and MSc. positions are partially funded, encompassing Tuition fees as per UDSM postgraduate studies rates, and research travel costs and supplies as per the project budget.
  2. Successful PhD and MSc. Candidates will be enrolled at the Institute of Resource Assessment (IRA) to pursue a PhD or MSc. Natural Resource Assessment and Management, or a PhD or MSc. Climate Change and Sustainable Development.
  3. The duration of the PhD and MSc. Scholarships is 3 and 1.5 years respectively. The scholarships will start in March 2022.
  4. The PhD and MSc. Students are expected to undertake fieldwork in the said case study areas.
  5. The PhD and MSc. students are expected to fully participate in BC5 project activities; as well as adhere to UDSM Postgraduate studies regulations, and
  6. Both PhD and MSc. candidates should demonstrate capacity and willingness to publish at least one article for the MSc. and two for PhD Candidates

Funded Masters scholarship for egalitarian archival Practice University of Dar es Salaam and the Universities of Exeter (UK)

Filed in Scholarships by on October 12, 2021 0 Comments

Funded Masters scholarship for egalitarian archival Practice University of Dar es Salaam and the Universities of Exeter (UK)

1. Background

A four-year (2020 – 2024) UKRI-AHRC funded project entitled ‘Imagining Futures through Un/Archived Pasts is a multidisciplinary research collaboration between the University of Dar es Salaam and the Universities of Exeter (UK) hosted in the Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies, College of Humanities. The project seeks to recruit 3 full-time masters’ students for 18 months to pursue master’s degree in egalitarian archiving practices (broadly construed). Archaeologists from the university of Dar es Salaam Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies, as well as other experts from the UK, Lebanon, Ghana and South Africa will supervise the prospective students.

2. Research Focus

Archives are comparatively seldom created with posterity in mind, but rather to accomplish some purpose. For example, debtors write pleading letters, officials acquit themselves of their duties through reports, literate adult’s gossip with their relatives who live at a distance, and isolated missionaries record their observations of their clients to justify their success or failure. Archiving is thus not a careless procedure. In the case of colonial enterprises as well as emerging nation-states, archiving was a crucial component that made up part of a political economy of property and power which predicated control of an implicit demand for literacy. Kept by those whom they advantaged, orally transmitted records that did not fit literate concepts of archiving were progressively devalued. The result was that the reproduction of documents construed conventionally as untrustworthy were abandoned over time and they were lost. This shows how colonial legacies of archives have challenged local realities since their inception not only in the subject of what is archived (often the monumental), but also its form (visual or textbased) which in many cases have proved unhelpful outside the conventional archive. There are also overwriting and erasure of contested memories on sites and landscape of trauma.

The Masters Scholarship for Egalitarian Archival Practice will be executed in Tanzania to involve:

  1. The exploration of Acts of archiving that draws on local knowledge and joint decision making in what is to be remembered or forgotten.
  2. Reconnoitering of tangible and intangible heritage archiving practice
  3. A comparative study between archives in Tanzania and those of the former colonial masters and how such documents are juxtaposed in interpretation of the history of Tanzania today.
  4. Documentation of archives in danger
