Join us at GGAA conference in Melbourne 14-18th February 2016 for an ASGGN meeting
LEARN is a collaborative, international network to facilitate the development of practical and cost effective agricultural greenhouse gas mitigation solutions.
LEARN provides training opportunities for technicians, emerging researchers and senior scientists from developing countries.
The LEARN awards programme is designed to enable researchers to acquire skills in new/unfamiliar techniques and methods in livestock greenhouse gas emissions mitigation.
Additionally, one senior scientist funding opportunity is available.See more here: http://www.livestockemissions.net/
LEARN Technician Award
The LEARN Technician Award will provide funds for up to 6 months for a Technician from a developing country to travel to a New Zealand organisation to receive training on equipment, tools or methods that when applied in their home organisation/country will improve the measurement of and understanding of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. The award aims to build capacity amongst Technicians to facilitate their future or ongoing participation in research, development and extension activities or programmes directly related to the mitigation of livestock greenhouse gas emissions.
The Award seeks to:
LEARN Co-funded PhD Scholarship
The LEARN co-funded PhD Scholarship will provide a stipend for a PhD student from a developing country to benefit from having supervision from a researcher based at a institution in New Zealand. The Scholarship is for a maximum of three years duration and the student can be enrolled in a PhD programme in their home country or at a New Zealand Institution to receive the Scholarship. The Scholarship aims to build capacity amongst emerging scientists to facilitate their future or ongoing participation in research, development and extension activities or programmes directly related to the mitigation of livestock greenhouse gas emissions. For those students enrolled in a PhD in their home country the Scholarship also provides a travel allowance for the PhD student to participate in a 12 month (maximum) PhD placement (note that this may be split into multiple visits over a 3 year period but must total no more than 12 months). The PhD placement must be taken in New Zealand.
The Scholarships seek to:
The Scholarships are designed to support the completion of a PhD; the Scholarships DO NOT support conference visits. Scholarships are administered by the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse gas Research Centre (NZAGRC) on behalf of the New Zealand Government.
LEARN Postdoctoral Fellow Award
The LEARN Postdoctoral Fellowship will enable an emerging researcher from a developing country to work on a research project mentored by a New Zealand researcher while being based at an institution in New Zealand. The award aims to build capacity amongst scientists to facilitate their future or ongoing participation in research, development and extension activities or programmes directly related to the mitigation of ruminant livestock greenhouse gas emissions in their home country, as well as build closer relationships with New Zealand. The Fellowship must be spent in New Zealand and last for a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of two years. The Fellow must be employed in a research post in their home country to receive the award.
The Fellowship seeks to:
The Awards are designed to support the completion of a research project; the Awards DO NOT support conference visits. Awards are administered by the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC) on behalf of the New Zealand Government.
Global Research Alliance Senior Scientist Award
The GRASS Award will provide funds for extended exchanges between New Zealand scientists and scientists from other Alliance member countries in accordance with the mission and objectives of LEARN and the Alliance.
The Awards seek to:
The Awards are designed to support extended exchanges of scientists; the Awards DO NOT support conference visits or short-term stays of less than 6 weeks duration.
