EMPLOYMENT: Director, CIAT Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Research Area
The Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility (TSBF) Research Area of CIAT operates as an integral part of the CIAT research program and is housed at the ICRAF Campus, Nairobi, Kenya. The goal of TSBF is to contribute to human welfare and environmental conservation in the tropics by developing adoptable and suitable soil management practices that integrate the biological, chemical and socioeconomic processes that regulate soil fertility and optimize the use of organic and inorganic resources.
TSBF focuses on two major programs namely: Integrated Soil Fertility Management and Sustainable Land Management. These programs are executed through TSBF’s presence in Kenya (Nairobi, Maseno), DR Congo (Kinshasa, Bukavu), Rwanda (Kigali), Mali (Bamako), Zimbabwe (Harare), and Malawi (Lilongwe), covering the East and southern African savannas, the Central African humid forest, the West African Sahel, and the East and Central African mid-altitide Impact Zones. TSBF’s presence in the West African Sahel and the West African Savanna and humid forest Impact zones is facilitated by ICRISAT (Niger) and IITA (Nigeria).
