Announcement of Opportunity - ESPA Fellowships
Scheme A: Early Career Research Fellowships
Scheme B: Research Capacity Strengthening Fellowships
Closing date: 16:00 GMT, 20 November 2013
Applications are invited to a major new initiative to create and support a global network of ESPA Fellows. The programme intends to support approximately 12 ESPA Fellows between 2014 and 2016 who will work with existing ESPA projects and the ESPA Directorate. The ESPA Fellowships are being run as two schemes simultaneously.
Scheme A: ESPA Early Career Research Fellowships will support the professional development of promising early stage researchers (with up to 6 years' experience after completing their PhD or equivalent professions experience). Early Career Research Fellows will be required to implement an independent programme of research linked to an ESPA project. This scheme is open to researchers of all nationalities.
Scheme B: ESPA Research Capacity Strengthening Fellowships have a greater emphasis on personal research capacity strengthening than the Early Career Research Fellowships. Research Capacity Strengthening Fellows will join the research team of an existing, active ESPA project and contribute to the core research of that project. The scheme will support the professional development of researchers who are nationals of a low-income country. Applicants must hold a relevant Bachelors, Masters or PhD degree (no more than five years post-award of the most recent degree).
Applicants must submit the application form and necessary accompanying documents to the ESPA Secretariat by the closing date, 16:00 GMT, Wednesday 20 November 2013.
Please see the Announcement of Opportunity and Application documents below for full details.
