Application Deadline: Friday 29 May 2020 at 1200 hours

The Research Council of Zimbabwe (RCZ) is offering scholarships to support MPhil, taught or Masters by research degree programmes in line with the National Research Priorities (NRPs). Zimbabwe considers human capital investment via education a major tool for sustainable development and for the attainment of Vision 2030. According to the 2018 National Critical Skills Audit Report by the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development (MHTEISTD), Zimbabwe has a critical skills deficit in Engineering and Technology, Natural and Applied Sciences, Medical and Health Sciences and this needs focused planning to increase enrolments in these areas. The aim of the scholarship programme is to reward high-achieving students and to invest in human capital development in these areas. RCZ anticipates that the beneficiaries from the 2020 Scholarship Programme will be absorbed into Zimbabwe’s workforce by 2022.

Benefits

The scholarship covers tuition fees up to ZWL30 000.

Applicants must:

Be a national and resident of Zimbabwe.
Be in possession of a good first degree (minimum second class).
Be applying for a full-time taught masters or masters by research or MPhil in Engineering and Technology, Natural and Applied Sciences, and Health Sciences at public Zimbabwean universities.
Research on any aspect of COVID-19 (health, economics, social, etc) will be given special consideration.
Application Process

The application form serves as the basis for assessment. The application form can be found on the RCZ website, www.rcz.ac.zw . It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that the application is complete and accurate before submission. All sections of the form must be completed.

Crop Physiology and Climate Change | PE&RC

The C.T. De Wit Graduate School Production Ecology & Resource
Conservation at Wageningen University in collaboration with the
University of Florida, is offering a 6-day Postgraduate Course for PhD
candidates and other academics entitled "Fundamentals of Crop Physiology
and Climate Change: Understanding Fundamental Processes to Counter the
Challenge." The course is scheduled from May 5-10, 2019 in the Congress
Centre "De Werelt" in Lunteren, the Netherlands. Course lecturers
include Ken Boote, Paul Struik, Jochem Evers, Melanie Correll, and many
others. The course will focus on the fundamental knowledge and insight
one must have about crops to be able to adapt agronomic practices to the
changing world. The toolbox in this course will be a variety of plant
and crop models. The overall goal of this course is to understand the
effects of temperature, light, CO2, and water on the carbon source-sink
relationships of plants and to improve the underlying models.

For further information and registration, please check the course web
site at https://www.pe-rc.nl/crop-physiology.

The global food system is under stress. Crop yields are expected to decline due to increases in the frequencies of heat waves and prolonged periods of droughts. This course will explore the effects of elevated CO2, temperature and drought on crop physiology. Crop traits that can mitigate or even enh...

Environmental Security and Sustaining Peace

EBAFOSA


Dear Obert Jiri,
Greetings!

UN Environment is proud to announce the running of a massive open online course (MOOC) on Envirnomental Security and Sustaining Peace. This 8-week course starts February 11, and it is offered in English, with video transcripts and tests in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Mandarin Chinese. The course is free.

This is a great opportunity for youth (and others!) to learn about how the environment and natural resources can be a cause for peace, rather than conflict. The course is taught by leading practitioners and professors from around the world. It is also a great opportunity to interact with others from around the world through interactive discussion groups and crowd-mapping exercises using the UN’s MapX platform to enhance student engagement.

Environmental peacebuilding is a dynamic, cutting-edge field that is seek to improve environmental governance to support durable peace. It includes efforts to prevent, mitigate, resolve, and recover from violent conflict. If you are interested in environment, conflict, and peace, this is a fantastic opportunity to engage with leading experts, meet other people interested in this field, and learn how you can continue to engage with a rapidly growing group of like-minded practitioners, researchers, and policymakers.

The trailer for the MOOC is available at:
