Climate Research for Alumni and Postdocs in Africa

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has published a call for postdoctoral fellowships in climate research in Africa.

The DAAD climapAfrica programme in cooperation with the climate competence centers SASSCAL and WASCAL aims to foster application- oriented research results to tackle climate change in southern and western Africa.

The programme funds postdoctoral research projects and offers a platform for collaboration in thematic working groups composed of postdoctoral fellows and African alumni of German funding initiatives with expertise in the field of climate research.

Fellows and Alumni experts will increase their research impact and output through a comprehensive training and support programme, including general skills training, science policy advising and science management. The working groups serve as a platform to connect with peers, regional and international experts and practitioners and to build a growing professional network across Africa. 

Application deadline: 15 February 2021.

Applicants must be nationals of an African country and must be willing to realise their project at a host institution in western or southern Africa.
