Closing Date: 30 April 2024, 5 pm (NZST)

Location: New Zealand

The New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC), in partnership with New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has launched a multi-year scholarship and fellowship programme. The programme will be open to those working on projects focused on reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.

The programme provides funding for up to five PhD students (up to three years) and up to four post-doctoral researchers (up to two years) to contribute to New Zealand-based research programmes targeting a reduction in agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.

The programme funding covers stipend and tuition fees (PhD), or salary and research costs/overheads (Post-doctoral). For more details including eligibility & funding details please see: https://www.nzagrc.org.nz/domestic/capacity-development/early-career-researcher-funding

Step 1 of the process for awarding the scholarships/fellowships is an open call for New Zealand based research projects that would be suitable for hosting either a PhD student or post-doctoral fellow. The call is open from 8 April to 30 April 2024.

 If you have a project which you think would be a good fit, please complete the application form at https://www.nzagrc.org.nz/domestic/capacity-development/early-career-researcher-funding and submit to [email protected] before 5pm, 30 April 2024.

Once the successful projects have been selected, the NZAGRC will facilitate an applicant selection process, including advertising for applicants, short-listing, and working with host organisations to interview and select preferred applicants.
