CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: On-the-Job Research Capacity Building for Sustainable Agriculture in Developing Countries (OJCB)

UNU-ISP is pleased to announce that applications are now available for On-the-Job Research Capacity Building for Sustainable Agriculture in Developing Countries (OJCB). This programme is funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan, and coordinated by UNU-ISP.

UNU-ISP will support the capacity building programme planned and implemented by leading scientists, which mainly consists of on-the-Job training (OJT) for capacity building for young researchers in developing countries.

The purpose of this programme is to:

  1. Develop capacity for agricultural research in developing countries.
  2. Disseminate new agricultural technologies that are adaptable to local conditions and to local farmers.
  3. Ultimately contribute towards increasing world food production through promotion of sustainable agriculture in developing countries.

Each capacity building programme is planned and implemented by a leading scientist (host scientist) who is engaged in research related to sustainable agriculture in developing countries.

The programme consists of:

  1. OJT for young researchers in developing countries (trainees) under a host scientist.
  2. Guidance for creation of an action plan to be implemented by the trainee after the OJT.
  3. Follow up implementation of the action plan by the trainee.

The OJT, which is the main component of the programme, should be conducted for 1 to 3 months in principle, but it is extendable within the limit of the budget, depending on the proposed programme.

More information.

Deadline: October 10, 2011
