The AIMS NEI Fellowship Program for Women in Climate Change Science is inviting applications from outstanding female scientists currently residing anywhere in the world. Successful applicants are expected to execute in a suitable African host institution a selfinitiated project with the potential to contribute significantly to the understanding of climate change and its impacts, and/or to the development and implementation of innovative, empirically grounded policies and strategies for mitigation, adaptation, and/or resilience.

Preference will be given to applicants proposing projects that make substantive use of the mathematical sciences, be it for modelling climate change, quantifying its impacts, evaluating the costeffectiveness of interventions, designing experiments, analysing data, or other relevant activities.

To be eligible, applicants must be:

  • female
  • in possession before the fellowship start date of a doctorate in a quantitative discipline, including, but not limited to, applied mathematics, climatology, physics, computational chemistry, statistical ecology, computer science, theoretical biology, and engineering
  • currently employed, on either a permanent or a temporary basis, in a non-profit work environment, including government
  • actively engaged in research, policy, and/or practice relevant to climate change modelling, mitigation, adaptation, and/or resilience
  • the lead and/or senior author of at least one refereed publication on a topic relevant to climate change modelling, mitigation, adaptation, and/or resilience

To apply, email a completed application form, completed project proposal form, CV, and an electronic copy of a representative publication on which the applicant is the lead and/or senior author to ms4cr-fellows@nexteinstein.org by 27 October 2017.

Three confidential letters of support must also be submitted by the application deadline. Two of these letters should come from the applicant’s immediate supervisor at her home institution and the named collaborator at her proposed host institution. At least one letter should come from a referee who is qualified to assess the applicant’s experience in climate change research, practice, and/or policy.
