CHAP partners Cranfield University and Rothamsted Research are continuing their joint collaboration with Morocco’s Mohammed VI Polytechnic University.
A dozen postdoctoral research posts are now available, building on the previous collaboration for 10 four-year PhD studentships which will start later this year.
Professor Leon A. Terry, Director of Environment and Agrifood at Cranfield University, said: “Our partnership brings together the very best in UK plant and soil science with the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University. It is a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of leading plant and soil scientists to help build African agricultural capacity.”
Rothamsted's International Projects Officer, Nicola Yates said: “These positions are a unique opportunity for early career scientists as they provide a chance to work in UK and Africa, with academia and industry, as well as offering the possibility to apply for a permanent Research Fellow position in Morocco after successful completion of the postdoc.”
Those appointed will be employed on an internationally competitive salary by Mohammed VI Polytechnic University and will spend time in Morocco, as well as Cranfield University and Rothamsted.
