The Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) Programme provides opportunities for doctoral graduates to undertake research at icipe to develop their research skills and careers, and develop collaborative research programmes.

icipe provides two categories of PDF:

  • Two-year fellowships: PDFs are attached to on-going icipe projects to support strategic research.
  • Short-term fellowships: Originally proposed by TWAS, the World Academy of Sciences, this scheme provides early-career doctoral scientists from developing countries to undertake research at icipe for 6-12 months in an area of common research interest.
