Joint NAM S&T Centre - ZMT Bremen Fellowships

The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre; http://www.namstct.org) 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 2011.

 

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 [*/www.zmt-bremen.de <http://www.zmt-bremen.de/>/*] 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 Center in Bremen.

 

Under this scheme, the NAM S&T Centre sponsors up to five scientists in a given calendar year, of which only one scientist can be 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 member of the NAM S&T Centre, are also welcome subject to certain conditions. ZMT provides a monthly subsistence allowance of 1000 Euros to meet the accommodation and other expenses in Bremen.

 

Applications recommended by the parent institutions of the applicants may be submitted to the NAM S&T Centre by email in the relevant format.
There is no last date for submitting the application but the selection will be made on first-come-first basis 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. Copies of the guidelines for the Fellowship and the application form are attached (also available at the Centre’s Website http://www.namstct.org/). The Guidelines may please be read carefully before making the application.
