Fellowship in Tropical Coastal Marine Ecology and Biogeochemistry

The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) is pleased to invite applications from suitable candidates for the Joint NAM S&T Centre - ZMT Bremen (Germany) Fellowship in Tropical Coastal Marine Ecology and Biogeochemistry for the year 2014.

This Fellowship scheme was initiated in January 2008 for affiliation of the scientists from the developing countries with the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT), Bremen, Germany for a period of up to 3 months to work with its senior researchers and faculty members for upgrading research skills in the fields related to Ecology and Biogeochemistry of Tropical Coastal Marine Systems and undertaking short-term joint research projects. Depending on the research topic, the Fellows can also benefit from the ZMT’s association with the Marine Science Institute of Bremen University, Max Plank Institute for Marine Microbiology and the MARUM Research Centre in Bremen.

Under this scheme, the NAM S&T Centre sponsors up to five scientists each year. Only one scientist can be selected from any given developing country. The Centre covers the international airfare of the Fellows from its member countries, but applications from those developing countries, which are still not the members of the NAM S&T Centre, are also welcome subject to certain conditions. ZMT provides a monthly subsistence allowance of €1,250 to meet the accommodation and other expenses in Bremen.

The last date for submitting application for the Fellowship is 1st June 2014.

The selection will be made strictly based on the professional details of the applicant, plan of work to be carried out and mutual research interests of the applicant and ZMT. Please read the the guidelines carefully before making an application.
