Printer-friendly versionSend by email

I am a young scientist from Burkina Faso working in the field of crop physiology and selection for drought tolerance in tropical legumes et cereals. My PhD focused on improving drought tolerance phenotyping using agronomical, morphological and physiological traits and contributing to a better understanding of tghe mechanisms underlying plants adaptation to environmental stresses. I carried out several on-field, glasshouse, growth chamber, lysimetruc system experiments at CERAAS in Senegal et at ICRISAT in India. With my team, we published several reserach papers in peer-reviewed journals, international conferences and symposia. I already submitted my PhD thesis at the University of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and i am expect to defend and obtain my Ph degree by June 2013. My question is whether i am eligible for the for the International Post-doc Fellowship Programme in Plant Sciences? I went through the Plant Fellows website and i have already found and targeted a possible PI from the ETH Zurich, Institute of Agricultural Sciences that i will contact later if necessary. With thanks and regards. Nouhoun Belko
