AgreenSkills Post-doctoral Research Fellowships
AgreenSkills is a European co-funded mobility programme, accepting applications for post-doctoral fellowships from international researchers in the fields of life, agricultural, nutrition, and environmental sciences. Proposals are accepted, without any topic guideline, for basic or applied sciences. AgreenSkills has a continuous call for submissions, with the next evaluation deadline on November 15, 2014 (24:00 CET).
AgreenSkills fellowships can be both incoming and outgoing in nature. Incoming fellows are offered 12-24 month positions at a laboratory based within one of Agreenium’s member organizations (INRA, Cirad, AgroParisTech, Agrocampus Ouest, Montpellier SupAgro, and INPT-ENVT) in France. Conversely, outgoing fellows must already be employed by an Agreenium member, and spend their 6-24 month mobility period at an institution outside of France. Submissions are accepted from candidates of all nationalities and countries of origins.
Candidates eligible to apply for a fellowship must have defended their thesis by the start date of their fellowship and must have postdoctoral research experience equal to or less than 6 years (excluding career breaks). Fluent English or French is a prerequisite, as is the publication of (at least) one article in an international peer-reviewed journal. The full list of eligibility requirements for incoming and outgoing fellows can be found here: http://www.agreenskills.eu/agreenskills-cms/Applications/Eligibility-requirements
Candidates interested in the fellowship programme must first complete an online eligibility check before they can contact receiving labs in France (incoming fellow) or abroad (outgoing fellow) to seek a postdoctoral research position and submit an application for evaluation.
Submissions of proposed research projects are evaluated bi-annually through a rigorous international reviewing process, and particular attention is paid to evaluate the applicant according to his/her own research experience.

As a European Commission co-funded mobility programme, AgreenSkills strives to offer its fellows competitive salary and career development packages, within first-rate research environments. AgreenSkills Fellows receive competitive salaries that are significantly higher than thos offered by the French state to young post-doctoral researchers. Each fellowship is tailored to the needs of the fellow, with a particular focus on training, networking, and flexibility. Fellows are treated equally with permanent staff and are covered by the French social security system.
