The CLIFF-GRADS program welcomes applications from trainees from establishing nations[1] presently registered in PhD programs for short-term clinical training and research study remain on subjects connected to the measurement and management of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon storage in farming systems.

Candidates ought to have a background in farming and environment modification research study and be pursuing graduate research study associated to farming greenhouse gas metrology.

Selected trainees will be sponsored in the quantity of 10,00012,000 USD for short-term (4– 6 month) clinical training and research study remains to work together with jobs related to CCAFS and GRA Particular subjects will depend upon trainee and host organization researcher interests. A list of jobs looking for to host trainees is consisted of in the connected require propositions under “List of research study chances.”

The grants will be utilized to support travel to and living and research study expenses at the host organization. Grants might not be utilized for tuition or unassociated individual costs.

CLIFF-GRADS is a joint effort of the CGIAR Research Study Program on Environment Modification (CCAFS) L ow Emissions Advancement Flagship and the Global Research Study Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA). CLIFF-GRADS intends to develop the ability of early profession farming trainees in establishing nations to carry out applied research study on environment modification mitigation in farming.
