OPPORTUNITY – Biodiversity Fellows Program at ICCS, University of Oxford

OIE-listed notifiable diseases of 2018
August 24, 2018

Deadline – September 30

One of the aims of the Interdisciplinary Center for Conservation Science (ICCS) group is to improve engagement between researchers, conservation practitioners in the international and local NGO sectors, and businesses developing and implementing corporate biodiversity strategies, in order that scientific research is informed by, and meaningful for, real-world conservation issues.

The program offers NGO, governmental, or business employees working on biodiversity conservation the chance to spend up to three months with the ICCS group at the University of Oxford, writing papers, developing ideas or writing grant proposals. The Fellow will be encouraged to take part in a range of valuable interactions with students (undergraduate and post-graduate) and potential donors. For example, through offering reading groups relating to their subject area, evening talks or individual guidance to students wishing to learn more about how to approach the real-world issues of biodiversity conservation worldwide. The Fellows will be encouraged to host or take part in ICCS workshops and technical events.

Eligibility

  • Must be from developing country nationals.
  • Must be working outside of academia and a senior member of staff who would benefit from the opportunities offered by stepping away from NGO, government, or business environment and commitments for a short period of time to develop new strategic approaches, write up their ideas, or build partnerships.
  • Alternatively, may be at a relatively early stage in your career, particularly if you would benefit from learning new skills, analyzing, and writing up your datasets, and building an international network.

Benefits

ICCS will cover reasonable expenses related to travel, accommodation and training events for the duration of the program.
