Researchers from across the University of Cambridge and its affiliated institutes are engaging with the initiatives of the Cambridge-Africa Programme by carrying out collaborative research with African colleagues, and/or mentoring African fellows.
Dr Annettee Nakimuli, Makerere University and MUII PhD Fellow, and her Cambridge co-supervisor Professor Ashley Moffett, Department of Pathology.
In order to recruit excellent post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students from Africa into Cambridge for training, we have built (and are continuously expanding) a database of current and potential Cambridge collaborators/mentors and their expertise. The >180 Cambridge researchers listed are either already engaging with, or have indicated their interest in being matched to Africans who have similar research interests. Cambridge researchers who would like to get involved do not need to have a pre-prepared project available, or existing African links, in order to be included in the database. If you would like your details to be included, please complete the (short and painless) registration form.
Note to African researchers searching for a Cambridge mentor/collaborator: Please be aware that any enquiries about potential mentorship by, or collaboration with a Cambridge researcher need to be directed to one of the Cambridge-Africa Programme staff in the first instance. They will then put you in touch with the Cambridge researcher if there is an appropriate match in the research interests. Thanks for your cooperation.

Position & Affiliation:
Teaching Associate, Department of Politics and International Studies
My research intersects peace and conflict studies, Africanist studies and Historical sociology. It analyses everyday practices of peacebuilding, forms of state authority assertion and popular forms of resistance in the context of conflict and post-conflict processes. My research concentrates on the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Great Lakes, and focuses on practices and historicity as its methodology.
