Netherlands PhD Fellowship Program for Developing CountriesDeadline: 5 Feb/1 Oct 2013
Study in:  Netherlands
Research study starts 2013

Brief description: The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) are demand-driven fellowship programmes designed to promote capacity building within organizations in 61 developing countries by providing training and education to their mid-career staff members. The NFP is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the development cooperation budget.

Host Institution(s): PhD Degrees can be pursued at 21 Dutch universities and institutes for international education. For 2013/2014, see the list of Dutch institutions eligible for PhD studies.

Field(s) of study: Inquire with the Dutch Institution of your choosing for more information on available PhD research projects offered by their institution.

Target group: Students from NFP country list in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Half of the available fellowships should be awarded to female candidates and the other half should be spent on candidates from sub-Saharan Africa. Apart from this, priority is given to candidates from priority groups and/or from marginalized regions to be defined by the embassies.

Scholarship value/inclusions: The maximum NFP budget available for a PhD study programme is €85,000. This amount is intended as a contribution towards the costs of living and to cover visa, travel and insurance costs, as specified in the NFP Rules & Regulations. PhD students are allowed to seek alternative funding sources.

The maximum duration of a PhD fellowship is four years.  The PhD must be pursued according to a ‘sandwich’ or ‘picnic’ model, which means that at least a quarter of the PhD research will take place in the candidate’s home country.

Eligibility: A candidate applying for an NFP fellowship for a PhD Degree Programme must:

•  be a mid-career professional with at least three years’ relevant work experience;
•  be a national of, and working and living in one of the developing countries on the NFP country list valid at the time of application;
•   be nominated by his or her employer, who pledges to continue paying the candidate’s salary and guarantees the candidate will be able to return to an equivalent position after the termination of the fellowship period;
•    be unconditionally admitted to a Dutch institution as a PhD student. This means that the candidate must have met all the
academic requirements set by the Dutch university or institution;
•    not already have received an NFP PhD fellowship;
•    not be employed by:   a multinational corporation (for instance Shell, Unilever etc.); a large national and/-or commercial organisation; a bilateral donor organisation (for instance USAID, DFID, Danida, Sida, FinAid, AusAid, ADC, SwissAid etc.);  a multilateral donor organisation, (for instance a UN organisation, the World Bank, the IMF, Asian Development Bank, African Development Bank, IADB, etc.); or -  an international NGO (for instance Oxfam, Plan, Care, etc.)
•   have completed and submitted an NFP PhD fellowship application with all the required documentation before the NFP
fellowship application deadline;
•  be employed in an area to which the study will make a relevant contribution;
•   have a clear-cut, functional relationship with a relevant organisation and be in a position to introduce the newly acquired skills and knowledge into that organisation;
•     be available full-time to pursue the PhD without interruption, and be physically and mentally able to take part in the entire programme;
•  endorse the objective and the aim of the NFP. The aim of the NFP cannot be reached if the fellowship holder does not return to his or her own country. Nuffic would like to urge fellowship holders to return to their home country upon finishing the course or programme to meet the NFP aim in the most effective way.

Application instructions: Candidates first apply for admission directly to the Dutch institution of their choice. Admission requests must always be directed to the Dutch institution. Senior academic staff or a specific PhD committee decides if an candidate will be accepted. Usually, the admission decision is based on the research proposal submitted by the candidate.

The Dutch institution assesses the application and decides whether or not to admit the candidate as a PhD student. Candidates will receive a letter informing them if they have been admitted. Nuffic has no part in the academic admission process. A candidate applying for an NFP fellowship must have been unconditionally admitted to a Dutch institution for the course or programme for which the candidate applies for an NFP fellowship. This means that the candidate must have met all the academic and administrative requirements set by the Dutch institution.

Candidates are strongly advised to apply as early as possible for admission to the Dutch institution because these institutions need enough time to process all the applications for admission in time.  The academic admission process for a PhD study is an individual track. Candidates who wish to be admitted as a PhD student have to check with the Dutch institution if an academic admission deadline applies.

If you have obtained academic admission and prepared all the necessary documentation you can submit your NFP fellowship application using Scholarships Online (SOL), Nuffic’s online application tool which will be found at the official website starting 1 November 2011.  The fellowship applications for PhD research projects is 5 February or 1 October 2013 depending on the Dutch  institution.

It is important to read the NFP  Rules and Regulations 2013-2014 and visit the official website (link found below) for detailed information on how to apply for this scholarship.

Germany : PhD project Thermodynamics and the Land Surface System

Germany : PhD project Thermodynamics and the Land Surface SystemEnergy­ and mass exchanges govern the functioning of the land surface, and these are affected by vegetation and human activity. The second law of thermodynamics sets a direction as well as limits to these exchange processes, but the specific implications of the second law are currently hardly explored. The application of thermodynamics to land surface functioning has the potential to much better understand the emergence of land surface heterogeneity and spatial organization, the effects of life, as well as the limits to human activity at a profound level. In this project, thermodynamics is applied to a topic related to the functioning of land surface system. This can include the description of preferential flow structures in hydrology, such as macropores or channel networks, the evaluation of interactions of vegetation with land surface exchange processes or the application to human impacts related to land use change or renewable energy.

The PhD candidate will be advised by Axel Kleidon, Lee Miller and Maik Renner, all based at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry.

About the school: The International Max Planck Research School for Global Biogeochemical Cycles located in Jena, Germany, offers fellowships to outstanding students interested in research on biogeochemical cycles in the Earth system. The school provides excellent research possibilities for students to obtain a PhD degree in a 3­-years graduate program.The elements key to life such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen are continuously exchanged among the land, ocean and atmosphere in what are known as global biogeochemical cycles. Research in the IMPRS­gBGC discovers how these cycles function, how they are interconnected, and how they can change with climate or human activity.

In their thesis projects, students deal with various crucial aspects of global biogeochemical cycles and participate in ongoing research comprising field observations, method development, experiments, and modeling. Students will also benefit from a three­-month external research visit, specialised courses in e.g. statistics, Earth observation, modelling and analytical techniques, as well as in soft skills and will have ample opportunity to develop their personal career networks. 
The school is thus an excellent starting platform for a successful career in a field related to global biogeochemical cycles and Earth System Science.

Requirements: Applications for the program are open to well­-motivated and highly–qualified students from all countries. A prerequisite for joining the school is a diploma or master of science degree in geophysical sciences, environmental sciences, biological sciences, physics, chemistry, computer sciences or related fields, including a corresponding thesis. Proficiency in English is required since English is the official language of the program.
For this particular PhD project we seek a candidate with a strong background in physics and maths interested in developing and applying numerical simulation models to quantify thermodynamic directions and limits of the land surface system.

How to apply: We accept applications for PhD Scholarships until February 03, 2013. Top candidates will be invited to take part in our selection symposium on April 15­-16, 2013. Find out more and apply online: http://www.imprs­-gbgc.de

After you have been selected…
The IMPRS office will happily assist you with your transition to Jena.
Successful applicants are expected to join us in spring-­summer 2013 and will be offered financial support of 1365 Euros/month to cover their basic living expenses plus a monthly lump sum of 103 € and additional support for health insurance. There are no tuition fees.
Handicapped persons with comparable qualifications receive preferential status.

Application Deadline : 3 February 2013
