The fellowships are aimed at providing immediate opportunities to women entering research and to retain women who have initially chosen research as a vocation.
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.
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.
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.
