Eleven CSRP Fellows have now been selected from a large number of applications received. The successful Fellowship proposals cover a cross-section of CSRP themes: climate process understanding, climate model evaluation, seasonal and decadal prediction, downscaling, and preparation of observational data sets. Regions of study include East, West, Central and southern Africa.
More details on the Fellows and their CSRP research can be found here:
The Fellowships form a key part of the Climate Science Research Partnership between the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK Government. The CSRP aims are to improve the understanding and prediction of African climate on monthly, seasonal and decadal time scales and to strengthen climate science capacity in Africa.
The Fellows are all African climate researchers and applied climate scientists/practitioners working in the field of African climate variability and change.
Three types of Fellowship have been awarded:
- Postgraduate Research Fellowships (maximum 12 months duration)
- Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships (maximum 12 months duration)
- Applications Project Fellowships (maximum 6 months duration)
Through the CSRP Fellowships, the Fellows will have the opportunity to use CSRP research outputs (e.g. output from Hadley Centre climate and seasonal prediction models) to further their own research or applications project, interact with Met Office Hadley Centre scientists and contribute to the overall CSRP research objectives.
The Fellows will be funded to make an induction visit to the Met Office Hadley Centre, of up to 4 weeks duration, to learn about the CSRP objectives, retrieve data for the research/project and to help the consolidation of their research/project plans.
The Call for Applications is now closed
