Tailored opportunities: Research Fellowship program for women in mathematics, climatology, physics, computational chemistry, statistical ecology, computer science, theoretical biology, and engineering

What?

The AIMS NEI Fellowship Program for Women in Climate Change Science seeks to foster increased female participation in and contribute to a more sustainable societal response to climate change. This Fellowship Program was made possible by a grant from the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa, Canada, and financial support from the Government of Canada, provided through Global Affairs Canada (GAC). It is part of a broader effort by AIMS NEI to build the intellectual capital needed to solve the myriad challenges to Africa’s development resulting from climate change. Applications are invited from outstanding female scientists currently residing anywhere in the world. Successful applicants are expected to execute in a suitable African host institution a self initiated project with the potential to contribute significantly to the understanding of climate  change and its impacts, and/or to the development and implementation of innovative,  empirically grounded policies and strategies for mitigation, adaptation, and/or resilience.
