Call for proposals: Fellowship to deliver water security in Ethiopia

REACH announcement: Call for proposals: £60,000 Fellowship to help us deliver water security in Ethiopia

REACH is launching a Fellowship in hydro-economics with up to £60,000 of funding available until March 2019 (18 months) to help us deliver improved water security in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Fellowship is open to early to mid-career academics and researchers from a Sub-Sahara African country and holding a PhD at the time of application. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their ideas with current REACH researchers and partners to consider how their relationship with the programme might operate. Projects are expected to begin as soon as possible after the selection process.

The Fellow will undertake independent research to help the sector and policy makers, in particular the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity and the Awash Basin Authority, take appropriate regulatory and precautionary measures to manage water resources against a backdrop of economic growth and transformation.
