Female Postdoctoral Research Fellowships 2020 OPEN

CIFOR-ICRAF is committed in developing a diverse and strong pool of research scientists, both for strengthening our institutions and for the increasing needs of the world. The Female Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Programme is offering four Post-doc positions to female scientists in various fields of research study to be hired in the 1st quarter of this year (2020) for a duration of initial one year.

Scope of the Programme
Female postgraduates are expected to hold a Doctoral degree in a field related to agriculture, agroforestry, forestry and fields related to sustainable land management.

Female Post-doc Fellows under the programme may propose various arrangements to be engaged with CIFOR-ICRAF including secondment from their current institutes, job-sharing, or a regular employment contract. As we also want to contribute to development of our partner National Research Institutes (NARIs), we are similarly open to supporting “leave of absence” arrangements, on topics of mutual interest between CIFOR-ICRAF and the NARIs. The Post-doc Fellows may be based at one of our two Headquarters Locations i.e. Nairobi/Bogor or any of our several regional and country offices across the global tropics. The proposed term for employment is one-year, extendable subject to available funding.

Female Post-doc Fellows will be assigned a senior scientific supervisor and be a member of one or more Themes/Teams or Regions/Hubs at CIFOR-ICRAF. The Post-doc 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, computing needs, publishing, office needs and travel expenses.

Whilst 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.
