Objective: To accelerate the development of innovative and interdisciplinary methods, metrics and tools to advance scientific understanding of the linkages between agriculture and food systems, health, and nutrition outcomes, and thereby inform policy and programmatic actions in low and middle income countries (LMICs).

Funding available: Six one-year postdoctoral research fellowships, in four rounds (2015-2018), with stipends for fellows and two mentors.

Who can apply: Researchers who have completed a doctoral degree in any field related to agriculture, nutrition or health research and practice, and are seeking a career in research, education, and engagement at the intersection of two or more of these fields. Eligible candidates must have received their doctorate within 3 years of their proposed fellowship start date. Applicants may be of any nationality and have earned their doctorate anywhere, but IMMANA strongly encourages applications from female candidates, who are citizens of low- and middle-income countries, particularly those who have research or faculty appointments in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. At least one of the fellowship project’s two mentors must be located in Africa or Asia. Fellowship duration is 12 months and is not renewable.
