Please find below a call for the Daniel Carasso Fellowship: I address you from the Fundación Daniel y Nina Carasso to inform you about the call for the Daniel Carasso Fellowship , an initiative to support research on sustainable food systems.
The Fundación Daniel y Nina Carasso is active in two focus areas: Sustainable Food, for universal access to healthy food that is safe for people and ecosystems; and Art & Citizenship, to develop critical thinking and reinforce social bonds. The Foundation supports projects in France and Spain by providing financial resources and by accompanying a broad diversity of people and projects.
The Daniel Carasso Fellowship targets excellent young postdoctoral researchers of any nationality and scientific discipline, who are contributing actively to the transition to the sustainability of food systems. The aid is endowed with 160 000 euros to cover the salary and research activities of the awardee in a Spanish university or research center for a two-year period.
The deadline for submitting proposals is March 5, 2021. Ca ndidates must be nominated by consolidated researchers (i.e., tenured professor, full professor, tenured scientist or equivalents) from Spanish universities or research centers (public or private non-profit), which could undertake to provide the necessary mean s to integrate the awardee into a research group.
With this initiative, the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation seeks an opportunity to attract and consolidate research talent in Spain. This program will contribute to develop young researchers’ careers whose contribution is essential for the transition towards a more sustainable food systems and diets. You can find further information about this initiative in the rules for the Call for Nominations (attached) and in the Calls section in the Foundation´s website.
We would appreciate your help on the diffusion of the Call to the research community via the different channels of your organization (website, networks, statements, mailings…).
Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you very much!
