Division for Research Development
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​Interna​tional Postdocs​​​

​​​​​​​​​​The Postdoctoral Office (PDO) at the Division for Research Development (DRD) is your primary contact for administrative support and to facilitate your stay in South Africa. In collaboration with Stellenbosch University International (SU International/SUI), we assist international postdoctoral researchers with logistical arrangements, including support for visa applications, temporary accommodation at Stellenbosch University, airport transport upon arrival, and registration on the University system. If you have an existing visa, please reach out to SU International for guidance

For further enquiries, please contact us at postdocinfo@sun.ac.za

Postdoctoral researcher fellows (Postdocs) at Stellenbosch University are considered research fellows, rather than staff or students. They receive a fellowship, not a salary, from the University or a funding organisation. Hosting international postdocs helps to internationalise the university and expand collaborative research networks. International postdocs contribute to SU's goal of becoming an internationally acclaimed research-intensive university. ​
