TROPIBIO webinar

 

 

The first TROPIBIO Webinars will take place on the 19th July with the objective to assist early career researchers in Africa to apply for post-doctoral opportunities in Europe (e.g., the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships). There will be two separate webinars:
1. A Webinar in Portuguese aimed at researchers and students from Lusophone Africa. This webinar will begin with an introduction to CIBIO’s TROPIBIO project and outline different ways that African lusophone researchers can collaborate or contribute. This will be followed by an overview of the MSCA fellowships and outline the key steps in preparing a proposal.
2. A Webinar in English aimed at African researchers from the rest of the continent. The Webinar will focus on preparing and improving MSCA applications to ensure the maximum probability of success.
The webinars will be given jointly by Professor Richard Ladle, the ERA Research Chair in Tropical Biodiversity and Ecosystems Research at CIBIO and Dr Juliana Stropp, an MSCA Fellow at Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN-CSIC) in Madrid. Professor Ladle is a Principal Investigator on the Tropibio project and has previously worked as an expert evaluator for the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships. Dr Stropp ran a very successful Webinar in Brazil in 2020 on applying for the MSCA Fellowships and the current webinars are an adaptation of this model.
