World Agroforestry Centre
Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
Applications considered throughout the year
Women postgraduates are expected to hold a Doctoral degree in a field related to agriculture, agroforestry, biodiversity, biometrics, capacity building, climate change, ecology, economics, environmental policy, forestry, genetic resources, geography, hydrology, impact assessment, institutional strengthening, land degradation, marketing, natural products, natural resource management, or sociology.
Women Fellows under the programme may propose various arrangements to be engaged with the World Agroforestry Centre including secondment from their current institutes, job-sharing, regular employment contract at our headquarters or regular contract at one of our five regional centres. The minimum term for employment is two years. We also want to contribute to development of national research institutes and so willingly support “leave without pay” arrangements, as well as topics of mutual interest between ICRAF and the NARI.
Women Fellows will be assigned a senior scientific supervisor, and be a member of one or more Global Research Project or Regional Teams at ICRAF. Women Fellows will be expected to undertake an approved research study which will include publishing of their results and presentation at international fora. The request from the programme for each Fellow should cover salary, benefits, transport, women’s leadership courses, computing needs, office needs, travel and research expenses.
While candidates will not be excluded on the basis of age or nationality, a preference will be given to applicants below the age of forty five years and those from developing and/or investor countries.
Applications can be made via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
