IMMANA Fellowships For Emerging Leaders In Agriculture, Nutrition, And Health Research… Round 6 IMMANA Fellowships for emerging leaders in agriculture, nutrition, and health research.

The Friedman School of Nutrition at Tufts University and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine are pleased to announce a new round of one-year Fellowships for emerging leaders in agriculture, nutrition, and health research, co-funded with UK Aid from the UK government through the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, through their programme on Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA).

To be considered for the programme, all applicants must submit a Full Application. Applicants should not expect to receive feedback on their Full Application prior to notification of selection.

Career development Fellowships on Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA Fellowships) aim to create a cadre of emerging leaders in agriculture, nutrition, and health research.

This workstream of the IMMANA programme is led by the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. It consists of annual rounds of 6 Fellowships each year. The application  portal will soon be open for the sixth round of funding.

In each annual round, IMMANA will award six 12-month post-doctoral Fellowships to emerging leaders who are applying and/or validating new methodological approaches with mentors in ongoing research programmes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The Fellowship includes a research stipend, a travel allowance, and an honorarium for each of the mentors.

Eligible candidates have completed a doctoral degree in any field related to agriculture, nutrition or health research and practice.

Fellows conduct their research in Africa or Asia under the joint supervision of two mentors, one from the applicant’s current or previous employer or academic institution, and one from a host institution where the applicant proposes to advance their work.

Fellows are selected through a competitive process by the Independent Panel of Experts. The review process is also overseen by the IMMANA Steering Committee, comprised of members from FCDO, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, UKRI, USAID and CGIAR’s A4NH programme.
