Weekly Round-Up Of Opportunities Within The African Space Industry

Our Friday weekly round-up curates opportunities (listed on opportunities.africanews.space) that are still open for applications. The Opportunities portal aggregates job vacancies, internships, scholarships, calls for abstracts, fellowships, contests, exchange programmes and other opportunities that are available for Africans who are interested in space science and technology. Simply put, it’s an aggregator for space and astronomy-related opportunities for Africans.

Have you missed any opportunities this week? Check out the weekly round-up below:

The Africa-India Mobility Fund Is Calling For Research Funding Applications

The Africa-India Mobility Fund (AIMF) is now accepting applications from African and Indian scientists who wish to conduct visits of up to three months.

The AIMF is a partnership between The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) and the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance, which has been running since April 2018, to promote collaboration between African and Indian scientists.  Travel grants, which seek to establish links between African and Indian researchers that cultivate a culture of collaboration, will serve as a vehicle to improve research capacity and build leadership in biomedical and clinical research for Africa and India.

This proposed funding will support collaboration in research for solutions to challenges such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, dengue, malaria, vector-borne diseases, parasitic infections, emerging infections, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, health systems research, antimicrobial resistance, drug development, and general biomedical sciences, among others.

Deadline

The call for applications are now being issued as a single call, with applications closing on Friday October 4, 2019 at 5:00 PM EAT.
