Why is your PhD taking so long? Ask your supervisor by Maina Waruru

14. November 2019 - 16:11

Supervisors of doctoral students who saw their students as 'competitors' offered insufficient support, failed to facilitate the relevant training and were partly to blame for delays in the completion of doctoral programmes and high student drop-out rates, a recent seminar for doctoral mentees heard.

According to Chacha Nyaigotti-Chacha, chairman of Kenya's Commission for University Education, some professors viewed doctoral students as competitors, making the experience of pursuing a doctorate a “punishment” for the student.

“Simple procedures such as proposal writing training that ideally should take a short period to complete are, in some cases, taking three years,” he told the opening session of a seminar for doctoral mentees hosted by the College of Senior Academic Mentors of the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) in Nairobi, Kenya at the end of last month.

Nyaigotti-Chacha said a lack of adequate support by supervisors meant doctoral studies had become an open-ended affair with no timeline for completion – a problem that called for an urgent resolution.

Unnecessary obstacles

“Doctoral students are crying because studying for a PhD has become like rocket science because of the many obstacles encountered by students, yet some have even postponed starting a family to devote time to their studies,” Nyaigotti-Chacha said.

Like other levels of education, doctoral studies should have a strict timeline for completion. He said this was an attainable objective when supervisors extended the requisite support to students.

According to the professor, student supervision was also at risk of being “monetised”, with professors being paid according to the number of students they supervised.

This encouraged some lecturers to take on more students than they can ideally handle so as to earn more money, putting quality of supervision at risk.

“Universities must be vigilant against this emerging practice since monetising supervision will work against quality,” he told the session.

Scholarly culture

There was also a need to nurture a scholarly culture at all stages of graduate training, not simply at the thesis-writing stage, he said.

According to various studies, it takes up to six years to complete a PhD programme in many African universities with most of the candidates also being involved in active teaching, as opposed to full-time research – a situation which makes it more difficult to complete the studies on time.

In South Africa, which has some of Africa's highest-ranked universities, the average completion time is between four and five-and-a-half years, according to Professor Chika Sehoole, dean of the faculty of education at the University of Pretoria.

CODESRIA Executive Secretary Dr Godwin Murunga said it was important to re-introduce a seminar culture in PhD training in addition to other forms of support and mentoring. Students should be able to attend at least three such seminars and, where possible, receive mentorship support from a person other than their primary supervisor in the course of their PhD programme, he said.

This kind of mentorship results in a higher completion rate, he said, particularly as the external supervisor also helps to resolve conflict between a student and their primary supervisor if and when it arises, he said.

College of Mentors

According to Ibrahim Oanda Ogachi, senior programme officer and head of training, grants and fellowships at CODESRIA, the body's College of Mentors programme is meant to support doctoral education in the social sciences and humanities in African institutions.

It aims to complement the work of primary supervisors and ensure successful completion of doctoral studies by fellows, and their subsequent development into faculty members in various universities.

Under the mentorship programme, fellows are supported with various intellectual resources, including feedback on their work, in addition to exposing them to skills such as academic writing, public presentation-making and publishing, he said.

CODESRIA Doctoral Mentees Inducted at Nairobi Seminar by Maina Waruru

14. November 2019 - 11:55

2019 College of Mentors Institute
Nairobi, Kenya
21 - 31 October 2019

“The Doctoral Mentorship Institute of the CODESRIA College of Mentors hosted the 2019 cohort of mentees to a seminar in Nairobi, Kenya, bringing together 42 doctoral students from universities in Africa from 21 to 31 October 2019.

The seminar drew a mix of fellows all doctoral candidates for an intense 10 days of participatory-based induction course, taking place at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies in Nairobi. Participants also attended the conference of the African Studies Association of Africa held at the United States International University.

According to Ibrahim Oanda Ogachi, the head of CODESRIA's Training, Grants and Fellowships Programme, the event is meant to augment various efforts by CODESRIA to support doctoral education in the Social Sciences and Humanities in African Universities.
It also aims at providing participants with various “intellectual resources, including reading and commenting on their works”, besides exposing them to academic writing, public presentations, and publishing, Oanda noted.

The purpose is to complement work by their primary supervisors, the overall target being to ensure successful completion of doctoral studies by the fellows and subsequent transition into faculty members in various universities.

“It is important to note that the support provided during the seminar will not override the advice participants receive from their primary supervisors rather, and is expected of academic advising, this is a complementary process whereby participants' interests and academic development will be emphasized” said Oanda.

Prof Joseph Mensah, York University, (Canada), Abdul Karim Bangura American University, (USA) and Dr Anthony Bizos of University of Pretoria, (South Africa) were facilita- tors of the seminar.

Under the College, the fellows will be mentored for a period of up to three years to ensure they complete their studies on time, said CODESRIA Executive Secretary, Godwin Murunga.

Both the students and their primary supervisors will be linked to the college appointed mentor, avoiding conflict in terms of the roles played by both the mentor and the supervisor.

He observed that in the first cohort enrolled in 2016, a total of 49 doctoral students were linked to the college's mentors, and about 60% of them have successfully completed their doctoral studies, besides other accomplishments such as publishing and increased attendance in conferences.

Mentees in this year's class are junior faculty members attached to different universities, with both male and female genders being represented.

Interestingly, in this year cohort, two of the mentees are PhD candidates in Health Sciences, underscoring the critical role of this programme in opening a conversation between social sciences and health and relates sciences.“

“Africa Multiple” Cluster of Excellence: Four Junior Research Group Leaders (m/f/d)

15. Oktober 2019 - 17:56

The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching. The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth, funded by the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State Governments, is planning to establish four Junior Research Groups (JRG) to commence on July 1, 2020. We are currently seeking to appoint

Four Junior Research Group Leaders (m/f/d)

for a funding period of four years (pay grade TV-L 14). We expect the holders of the positions to implement an innovative research programme, designed for the duration of the funding period and integrating up to two doctoral students, whose selection and supervision will be the responsibility of the JRG leaders. The research projects should contribute to the theoretical agenda of the Cluster and connect to or complement the thematic fields addressed in the Cluster. The JRGs will work under the umbrella of the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies within the Cluster of Excellence, which runs an international fellow programme and specialized programmes for the training of postdoctoral scholars. The doctoral students will pursue their degrees within the Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies (BIGSAS), the graduate school of the Cluster of Excellence.

  • Two JRGs are advertised with open disciplinary and thematic orientations.
  • One JRG should pursue a research agenda in the field of Intersectionality Studies with links to the study of Africa and/or its diasporas. Given the transdisciplinary character of the field, applicants may come from a wide range of academic disciplines. They should have a track record in theoretical and methodological approaches in Gender Studies, Queer Studies or Postcolonial Studies. We are especially interested in candidates with competencies in debates in Black Feminist Studies and Women of Colour Feminist Studies.
  • The fourth JRG will work in the field of international relations with reference to Africa. Applicants may come from different disciplinary backgrounds and are expected to have a track record in theory and method in the social sciences and the study of international relations.

Apart from directing their research projects, the duties of the JRG leaders include active participation in the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence and teaching one course with two weekly contact hours per semester. The courses will be offered in one of the bachelor's and master's programmes relating to African Studies (or to Intersectionality Studies, in case of the JRG in intersectionality) or in other suitable programmes, as well as in BIGSAS. The JRG in intersectionality is further expected to collaborate with the Cluster's Gender & Diversity Office in the promotion of intersectionality and diversity perspectives. The working language of the cluster is English.

Prerequisite for applications is a very good doctoral degree in an academic discipline pertinent to the study of Africa (in the case of the JRGs with open disciplinary orientation) or to Intersectionality Studies (in the case of the JRG in intersectionality) or to the study of international relations with a social science approach (in the case of the JRG in international relations). In all cases, candidates need to have obtained their doctoral degrees no less than two years and no more than six years ago (date of the oral examination or defense/viva; periods of parental leave or severe illness are not included in the calculation). Holders of junior professorships or similar tenure track positions (W1/W2) are eligible to apply, provided they obtained the doctoral degree within the last six years. After the four-year funding period the leaders of the JRGs will have the opportunity to apply for a tenured professorship in the study of Africa at the University of Bayreuth.

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality. Women and persons who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse—especially African women and women of colour—are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers dual career support for careeroriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors' Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth's commitment to internationalization. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.

In addition to the usual application materials (CV outlining education and academic career, list of publications and courses taught, diplomas and certificates) applicants should give the names and contacts of two referees willing to provide recommendation letters on request. As a crucial part of the application candidates need to submit a research proposal in English, to be written on the basis of a template, where they outline an innovative research project suited for the format of a JRG. The template can be downloaded from the “Opportunities” section on the Cluster's web site, available at http://www.africamultiple.uni-bayreuth.de.

Please send your application electronically as a single PDF file (up to 30 MB) to the Dean of the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence, Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Seesemann, africamultiple-calls@uni-bayreuth.de. The closing date is December 31, 2019. In accordance with data protection law, the files will be permanently disposed of once the positions have been filled. In case of questions, please contact Robert Debusmann, the coordinator of the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies within the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence, mentioning “JRG” in the subject line: bayreuth.academy@uni-bayreuth.de.

24. September 2019 - 13:08

J. Alabi, G. Alabi, R. Adjei, P. Dzandu, G. Utuka, A. Munkaila. CODESRIA, Dakar, 2018, ISBN: 978-2-86978-788-9

This work examines quality assurance processes and practices in Higher Education Institutions in Ghana, using a mixed method approach, which combined surveys, reviews and expert interviews of past and present quality assurance directors. Ten universities were studied. The results demonstrate that quality assurance at higher institutions of learning in Ghana employ both internal and external quality assurance mechanisms. The external factors promoting quality assurance practices identified include accreditation, affiliation and institutional academic audits, while internal factors include strong leadership commitment for quality, strong vision and communication of the need for quality, the existence of a clear and well-communicated quality policy, reliable information management and documentation system, a structured Quality Management System, the willingness of people to accept the cultural changes that come with quality assurance practices, people seeing quality assurance as an improvement and not a policing activity, training in quality, affiliation, professional bodies' standards and norms, institutional self-monitoring and evaluation. Constraining factors include: low capacity in quality management, centralisation of the NAB, quality mindedness of community members, information management, quality of academic staff and staff skills mix, absence of Quality Assurance Frameworks or Guidelines and absence of Labour market information, funding for Quality assurance, inadequate facilities, hiring practices, affiliation, work load, lack of teaching and learning training requirements for higher education institutions in Ghana.

Joshua Alabi is a Russia-trained Ghanaian academic and politician who served as the first Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) from 2012 to 2016.

Goski Alabi is an accomplished academic, practitioner and entrepreneur with experience in academia, consultancy, and regulations. She is a Professor of Quality Management and Leadership.

Richard Adjei has extensive experience in accreditation and quality assurance management in higher education. Until his retirement in 2016, he worked as Deputy Executive Secretary and Head of the Quality Assurance Department of the National Accreditation Board, Ghana.

Paul Dzandu served as Deputy Executive Secretary at National Council for Tertiary Education in Ghana.

Godwin Utuka is a higher education management and Quality assurance specialist. He served as educational Administrator with the Office of Pro-Vice Chancellor, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, from where he obtained a PhD in Education.

Abdulai Munkaila is a Lecturer in the Department of Business Administration at the Faculty of Management Studies and also a Coordinator of the Centre for International Education and Collaboration (CIEC) at the University of Professional Studies, Accra.
