The call for the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) 2019 Biodiversity Fellowship is now open. Do you work for an NGO, government agency or business, or are you an early career researcher who could benefit from spending some time with our group? Apply!
The ICCS Biodiversity Fellows programme offers NGO, governmental, or business employees working on biodiversity conservation the chance to spend up to three months with the ICCS group at the University of Oxford, writing papers, developing ideas or writing grant proposals. The Fellow will be encouraged to take part in a range of valuable interactions with students (undergraduate and post-graduate) and potential donors. The Fellows will be encouraged to host or take part in ICCS workshops and technical events.
ICCS will cover reasonable expenses related to travel, accommodation and training events for the duration of the programme.
