Climate science fellowships for women on offer

Women interested in studying climate change could win fellowships each worth up to US$35,000 under a scheme funded by Canada and run by the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

The AIMS Next Einstein Initiative Fellowship Program for Women in Climate Change Science targets scientists working and residing anywhere in the world. But the fellows’ research projects will be carried out at African host institutions.

Successful fellows will study strategies for climate change mitigation, adaptation and building resilience. However, all projects need to make use of mathematical sciences. This could include “modelling climate change, quantifying its impacts, evaluating the cost-effectiveness of interventions, designing experiments, analysing data, or other relevant activities”, AIMS said in its call for applications on 19 September.
