|Don't miss this opportunity: Submit your EOI|

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) have called on individuals and institutions to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) for a new fellowship scheme and institutional capacity-strengthening programme that will enhance research into the impacts of climate change.
Funded by the UK government, the GBP4.8m programme titled Climate Impacts Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement (CIRCLE) will strengthen both institutional and individual research capacity. It will fund one-year fellowships for 60 post-Doctoral and 40 post-MSc researchers and concurrently run a programme for strengthening institutional research management and support for early career academics. The fellowships will cover the full cost of a one-year placement at a host institution in Africa, starting in 2014. Full implementation of the programme will depend on sufficient interest and commitment being expressed by African institutions to host and nominate fellows, and a large enough pool of eligible fellows.
For further information, please visit CIRCLE Call for Expression of Interest (EOI) or the CIRCLE webpage and read the criteria before submitting your EOI. To submit your EOI as a potential host and/or nominating/home institution or as a fellow, click on the relevant link below:
The deadline for submitting an expression of interest is 31 October 2013.
For further assistance, please contact Dr Benji Gyampoh at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms Jay Kubler at email@example.com.
And please feel free to circulate this call to all suitable institutions and/or individuals in your network.
