He was also a recipient of Career Development Fellowship of the World Health Organization between 2010 and 2011.  He is currently on a scholarship scheme sponsored by the National Universities Commission (NUC) Nigeria, on Applied Gerontology Programme of the University of North Texas.  Dr Kabiru Salami belongs to several professional bodies including the Nigeria Anthropological and Sociological Association (NASA), International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), and Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA), Dakar, Senegal among others.
As one of the key speakers for the JWTC 2013, Kabiru’s teamwork addressed “Confusion as a Form” through Idioms and Analytics for Impasse and Precarity.  The atmosphere of JWTC was beneficial enough that even while theory and criticism were ongoing, Kabiru had the opportunity to discuss participation in another WiSER Workshop in September.
