The Conversation Indonesia (TCID) invites a proposal from a consultant to lead the design and planning process to develop a fellowship program for early-career researchers in universities and research institutes.
To support The Conversation Indonesia’s participation in efforts to increase Indonesia’s capacity for high-quality and impactful research, in partnership and alignment with the higher education and research sector, we will develop a professional development program (Fellowship program) for early career researchers in the fields of Climate Change, Marine Science, Health and Medicine, and Community Resilience.
The fellowship will be designed to increase their skills to design complex multi-year research projects, to write research proposals to funders, and publish their research and communicate their findings to both the international scientific community and the general public. The fellowship program will also increase their access to information on research funding opportunities and widen their network with international collaborators.
The consultant will work together with a Project Manager, who will manage the project, in consultation with Head of Training, and assisted by a project assistant. The consultant will report to the Executive Editor ensuring timely completion of each stage of the project and on budget.
We anticipate the project will take six months, November 2020 to April 2021.
