Young scientists from developing countries have the opportunity to apply for one of five NAM Fellowships. The stipend by the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) and the Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) financially supports a three-month research stay at ZMT in Bremen.
Interested applicants from one of the NAM S&T Centre’s member countries can build on their research skills in the areas of ecology, biogeochemistry, ecological modeling, social sciences and coastal marine systems in the tropics.
Applicants must hold at least a Master of Science (M.Sc.) or equivalent degree and should be actively engaged in research and development.
The NAM Fellowship was initiated nine years ago to provide opportunities to scientists from developing countries to work with the ZMT and to strengthen their research skills and gain new knowledge.
Since the start of the programme in 2008 ZMT has hosted NAM-Fellows from amongst other Indonesia, Tanzania, Indonesia, Mauritius, Malaysia, Myanmar Bangladesh, Colombia, Kenya, Vietnam, Iran, Nigeria, Gambia, Egypt, Jordan or India. Some of these fellowships have developed into research cooperations.
More information and application forms can be found at NAM S&T Centre.
Currently, due to the Corona pandemic the fellowship program is paused.
