OPTICHINA TRAINING FELLOWSHIPS
|点击数： 457 | 发表时间： 2012-07-11|
OPTICHINA (Breeding to Optimise Chinese Agriculture) is an EU/CAAS funded project which aims to link the crop breeding research activities carried out by European and Chinese researchers. The project focuses specifically on research requirements to breeding for improved adaptation to abiotic stresses and sustainability of wheat and maize in China and Europe.
About 50 Fellowships will be provided in the next three years to support short training visits (of up to 3 months) to encourage cooperation and collaboration and support the adoption of best practice. The fellowships will be paid either through the OPTICHINA project funds or through the CAAS supplementary funds. Importantly this activity will build networks of support for scientists working within China and assist in the dissemination of relevant information. The OPTICHINA Training Fellowships will provide travel, accommodation and subsistence to support researchers to enable them to obtain training, either in a new discipline or in a new aspect of their own field.
The Host Institute or University must be within the EU or associated countries (for a full list of these see ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp7/docs/third_country_agreements_en.pdf ) or in China.
The awards are open to Chinese scientists and post graduates. Applicants are required to submit their completed application form, CV (maximum length two sides of A4 in 11 point Arial font) and a short letter of recommendation from both their Head of Department and a letter of agreement from the Host Institution. Applications not on this form will be rejected.
Applications should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The closing dates for applications are:
30 June 2012
Applications will be reviewed by a steering group who will make decisions and confirm the level of support.
All successful candidates will be required to write a short report summarising their visit and how it will benefit them in the future.
Questions or advice prior to application should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
