PhD grant available
« on: April 14, 2010, 16:06 »
Dear Umberto users,

The French Institute for Development, IRD (http://en.ird.fr/ or http://es.ird.fr/) is offering grants 3-year grants for Master students from developing countries who wish to start a PhD thesis co-supervised by an IRD senior scientist. I am such a scientist and I am ready to co-supervise a student on a scientific topic applied to the Peruvian anchovy supply chain (see http://www.ur097.ird.fr/team/pfreon/Textes/Proyecto_Tesis_PhD_P_Freon.doc for a brief description). This topic will form part of a broader scientific project described in a GLOBEC Newsletter paper (http://www.ur097.ird.fr/team/pfreon/PDF/Fr%E9on_et_al_Globec%20Newsletter_2010_Anchovy_supply_chain%20.pdf).
More details on the call can be found on http://www.ur097.ird.fr/team/pfreon/Textes/BSTD_Call_proposals_uk 2010.pdf. In brief, the grant provide a decent salary for a student without a family to support for alternated stays  in Peru and in France and/or another developed country, plus travel expenses. The major requirements are:

- to have in hand a full Master (with thesis defended) at the time of the dead line for submission (10th of May 2010)
- being trained in environmental ecology
- being interested and trained in modeling with dedicated software of MFA and/or LCA such as Umberto and/or SimaPro
- being fluent in English and Spanish (not necessarily in French).
If you are interested, or know student interested, please contact me (pierre.freon@ird.fr).
Yours sincerely
