1. Applicants
Applicants must be Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada, or citizens of a
developing country who are currently enrolled full-time in a graduate program (Master`s, doctoral, post-doctoral) at a recognized university in Canada or in a developing country for the duration of the award period.

2. Key Selection Criteria
A. Focus of the Research:
Proposals must focus on very simple cropping systems research that can benefit
smallholder farmers in developing countries, especially rural women farmers.

B. Participatory
Applicants must use simple experiments executed by cooperating farmers under guidance by the researchers (see details about the location of individual on-farm experiments) , and conduct their research with the active participation of the farmers, including women farmers. This requires that farmers be involved in all stages of the
experiment on their land, including all the stages of land preparation, seeding, and harvesting.

Research proposals must include details of the comparisons envisioned between the traditional cropping practice of cooperating farmers and the side-by-side alternative cropping practice, which must include some type of leguminous crop or plant. Please consult the attached diagram that shows how a simple on-farm experiment might be compared to either one or two alternative cropping systems. Thus, experiments must compare crop yields from traditional unicrop practice with yields of the same crop combined with some kind of leguminous plant grown either simultaneously with the traditional crop, or perhaps in some cases, grown before the traditional crop is planted.

Similar experiments executed in rural school gardens, conducted with the help
and advice of the Fellowship holder, and with the participation of both students and teachers, are also encouraged.

The research procedures must include extensive dissemination of the research results.
Smallholder farmers, including rural women farmers, should be the major focus of such publicity:

a. The results should be presented in formats that can reach the various stakeholders, such as field days, farmer visits, briefs for policy-makers;
b. Dissemination will actively involve farmers, extension workers, local development initiatives, and agricultural organizations by addressing other smallholder farmers, especially rural women farmers;
c. The publicity should include farmers` visits and farmer-to-farmer teaching and learning.

The applicant must:
- Provide evidence that a large part, or all of the research, will be carried out on the farms of resource poor or smallholder farmers. The award will not support research carried out on the farms of large land holders or on research stations;
- Provide evidence that farmers will actively participate in the experiments. Thus, the development of simple on-farm experimental designs with appropriate controls to determine the practicality and profitability of introducing a leguminous crop in their cropping system is essential;
- Scholarship applicants must provide explanations of how they will make the frequent trips from the `home base` to the villages of the cooperating farmers. This is essential for successful execution of on-farm tests;
- Explain how the research data was collected and how the introduction of leguminous plants in their cropping systems is expected to improve the economic benefits to farmers;

Applicants should suggest anticipated benefits/improvemen ts and sustainability of
their proposal.

C. Sustainability:
The applicant must:
- Provide evidence that he/she is or will be supported by local institutions that have a good working relationship with target communities, farmers and/or extension agencies;
- Indicate that he/she will seek cooperation, help and support from the local `extension officers` and/or NGOs in the identification of individual farmers who
are likely to be suitable and cooperative.

Award tenure corresponds with the period of field research. In general, this will be between eighteen months and twenty-four months.

The value of the award is up to CA $30,000. If there is strong evidence of significant potential benefits, the award may be extended upon re-application.

Progress Reports
Fellowship holders will commit to provide IDRC with three brief progress reports per year.

October 1, 2010 (awards will be announced by mid-December 2010).

Tenure must be undertaken by December of the following year.

7 PhD fellowships in Molecular and Chemical Ecology (Jena)

7 PhD fellowships in Molecular and Chemical Ecology (Jena)
The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) "The Exploration of Ecological Interactions with Molecular and Chemical Techniques" in Jena, Germany, is offering 7 PhD fellowships beginning in January 2011. Students holding a Master's degree (or equivalent) in molecular biology, ecology, plant physiology, entomology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry or neuroethology, with a proven record of success in one of the disciplines and interest in examining ecological interactions, are eligible to conduct a doctoral project within the IMPRS.

Deadline for applications is 30 June 2010.

The Research School is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology, and the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research. The main focus is on plant-herbivore interactions; other ecologically relevant topics are also investigated.
