The Gusau Institute (GI) offers up to three-month residential sabbatical opportunities to established academics who wish to engage in independent studies on human security issues. Benefits include transport between Abuja and Kaduna, housing at the GI premises in Kaduna, Nigeria, an office in the Aliyu Mohammed Research Library (AMRL), and basic office support services. This is a non-paying opportunity, however.
