S&T - Mobility programme for researchers in agriculture [fr]
AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ are excellence-oriented programmes, accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships from experienced international young and independent researchers and cofunded by the European Commission. Both programmes are coordinated by INRA in cooperation with Agreenium.
Proposals from researchers of any nationality are accepted, primarily in the fields of life, agricultural, nutrition, and environmental sciences. Applications with a project in other fields of research will also be reviewed (fundamental and applied sciences).
AgreenSkills’ incoming fellows are offered 1-2 year positions at a French agricultural higher education institution, including INRA and Cirad; while outgoing fellows, already employed by one of these very institutions, spend their 6-24 month mobility period at a research unit outside France. Independent researchers with 7-10 years’ experience, applying to AgreenSkills+ as incoming fellows, can be offered appointments up to a maximum of 3 years.
AgreenSkills and AgreenSkills+ have a continuous call for submissions, with the next evaluation deadline on the 5th of May 2014.
