Agreen Skills programme, call for applications
AgreenSkills is a new international mobility programme that supports inventive, talented and promising young researchers (post doc) from all disciplines and from all over the world to develop challenging basic or targeted research projects in the fields of agriculture, environment, food and nutrition, and animal health.
The programme is coordinated by France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) and Agreenium, a consortium comprising the main French agricultural and veterinary research and higher education organisations. It is co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the COFUND-FP7 People Programme.
AgreenSkills offers incoming and outgoing fellowships with attractive conditions in terms of salary, optimal research conditions, training, networking opportunities and personalised support for career development planning. It is aimed at talented young researchers from all over the world holding a PhD and having a maximum of ten years research experience after their Masters degree. It operates a continuous call for applications, with two selection rounds per year. The first call opened on 15 March 2012 and the first selection round is scheduled for June 2012. A second selection round will be carried out in the northern hemisphere autumn with a deadline for applications of 15 November 2012.
