Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) is a new research initiative funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and coordinated by LCIRAH.

IMMANA aims to accelerate the development of a robust scientific evidence base needed to guide changes in global agriculture and food systems to feed the world’s population in a way that is both healthy and sustainable.

Course Level: Fellowships are available for undertaking postdoctoral research programme.

Study Subject: Fellowships are awarded for Agriculture, Nutrition and Health research. The researchers will develop and adapt innovative methodological approaches with mentors in ongoing research programmes in LMICs.

Award: Fellows will be provided with a stipend of £34,000 (approximately $52,000) for the 12-month period, plus a research allowance of £7,500 to cover local travel and other research expenses (such as translation, hardware, software supplies, etc.), as well as participation in IMMANA Academy conferences, trainings and workshops. All payments will be made in as lump sums against completion of program milestones. Fellows are then responsible for arranging and paying all of their travel and other expenses during the project period.

The award can be taken in LMIC countries (at least one of the two mentors must be physically located in Africa or Asia.)

Eligible applicants will have completed a doctorate (PhD, DPhil, DPH, MD, DVM or similar terminal degree) in any field related to agriculture, nutrition and health within three years of the proposed Fellowship start date, and be seeking a career in research, education and engagement at the intersection of two or more of these fields. IMMANA strongly encourages applications from female candidates who are citizens of low- and middle-income countries. Selection will give preference to applicants who have research or faculty appointments in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, but applicants may be of any nationality and have earned their doctorate anywhere.
