A.G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship Programme 2022/23

Applications are invited to the  2022/2023 A.G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship Programme for senior staff and graduates.

The A. G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship Programme is a new fellowship program by Professor Milner-Gulland, Tasso Leventis Professor of Biodiversity in the Department of Biology, and her team in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science. The fellowship allows employees of non-governmental organizations, governments, and businesses working on biodiversity conservation, as well as academic researchers, to interact with University of Oxford researchers and take advantage of the University’s training, resources, and opportunities.

The goal of this program is to

  • support conservation practitioners in the local and international NGO sectors, government officials who are designing and implementing conservation policies, and businesses developing and implementing corporate biodiversity strategies to build their skills, capabilities and networks and thereby enhance their ability to contribute to conservation in their home country;
  • ensure that Oxford’s research is informed by, and meaningful for, real-world conservation issues, and is carried out in collaboration with in-country end-users;
  • build long-term relationships between Oxford researchers and conservation practitioners, strengthening Oxford’s ability to make a real-world difference.

Eligibility

The A.G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship is open to

  • Senior staff members who would benefit from the opportunities by taking part in the program and stepping away from their NGO, government, or business environment and commitments for a short period of time, to develop new strategic approaches, write up their ideas, or build partnerships.
  • However, applications are especially welcome from recent graduates who would benefit from the academic opportunities provided by the University of Oxford and the ICCS group. Especially if they want to improve their skills, analyze and write up their data, and build an international network.
