The Future Agricultures Consortium is inviting applicants for their Early Career Fellowships Programme.

The Future Agricultures Consortium (FAC) encourages critical debate and policy dialogue about the future of agriculture in Africa. The Consortium has been focussing on four core themes until now, namely: agricultural commercialisations; growth and social protection; policy processes; and science technology and innovation.

This year, they launched research in four new areas: climate change and agriculture; land and tenure; pastoralism; and youth and agriculture. Furthermore, the FAC has recently received funding from the UK Department for International Development (DfID) to support a three-year capacity-building programme for African and UK-based early career professionals.

This exciting new opportunity for grants is open to young researchers who have recently completed their degree in an appropriate development-related field. The focus is on junior candidates who have a strong interest in conducting research on agricultural policy issues in Sub-Saharan Africa. Eligible women candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

For more information about this programme and to apply for fellowships, please click here to download the application document, or visit the Future Agricultures Consortium website.

Applications close on 30 June 2010.
