 Photosynthesis revisited: climate emergency, “no pollution and zero-emission” challenge and industrial application
European Commission
The photosynthetic capacity of plants, algae, and other photosynthetic organisms to assimilate atmospheric carbon dioxide positions them at the center of the global climate change adaptation and mitigation challenges. Their autotrophic lifestyle also makes them ideal platform organisms for sustainable production of biomolecules, including molecules of high socio-economic value, of interest to diverse industrial sectors, by increasingly sophisticated synthetic and molecular biology approaches. This creates new opportunities for industrial production, beyond improved yields, while helping increase CO 2  assimilation capacity - contributing notably to the reduction of pollution in Europe, and making it more efficient. In particular, recent research confirms a strong correlation between plant physiological reactions during drought and heatwaves, which are increasing in frequency and intensity in Europe, notably by contributing to ozone pollution, the so-called ‘climate penalty of plants”. The successful proposal will contribute to Destination ‘Circular economy and bioeconomy sectors’ impacts, and the European policies it supports, in particular the European Green Deal, the circular economy action plan, and the bioeconomy strategy. They will help improve European industrial sustainability, competitiveness, and resource independence to develop innovative bio-based products. They will engage all stakeholders and improve their knowledge and understanding of science, notably of biotechnology-based value chains, and improve benefits for consumers. The award value is EUR 6 000
000.
Eligibility
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be established in one of the eligible countries;

  • The Member States of the European Union, including their outermost regions
  • The Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs)  are linked to the Member States
  • Eligible non-EU countries; countries associated with Horizon Europe and  low- and middle-income countries

The deadline for application is 15 February 2022 for the first stage and 01 September 2022 for the second stage.


Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience
DAAD
The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) under the  "Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience" (PRIME) is inviting applications to support the international mobility of postdoctoral researchers by temporary positions at German universities in place of conventional scholarships. Postdoctoral researchers who see their long-term career perspectives in Germany receive funding for a research stay abroad based on a temporary position at a German university. In addition to the stay abroad, the funding also includes a mandatory return phase for subsequent reintegration into the German science system.
Eligibility

  • There are no restrictions regarding nationality and current residency. However, depending on nationality and place of residence, restrictions may apply when choosing the destination country for the stay abroad.
  • You must have completed your doctorate before the start of funding with very good marks (at least magna cum laude / very good for a doctorate in Germany). If the doctorate is not graded, the decision lies with the DAAD selection committee.
  • While not recommended, it is possible to apply in the final stages of the doctorate.
  • Applicants must comply with the programme’s mobility rule, i.e., they are free to choose any country (except Germany) as destination for their research stay abroad, provided they have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in that country for more than 12 onths in total during the three years preceding the application deadline of 31 August 2022. Time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention will not betaken into account.
  • Applicants who are EU nationals, resident citizens, or have been continuously active in research for three years’ full-time equivalent in the EU prior to the time of recruitment may spend their research stay outside of the EU. All other applicants must stay in the European Union for their 12-months “abroad” phase.
  • To be considered for funding, applicants living abroad are expected to state their intent to continue their research careers in Germany upon completion of the return phase.
  • Applicants who are already permanently employed by the research milieu where the research training activities are planned to take place and that is recruiting them may not be supported.
  • Applicants must accept that the research stay abroad and the return phase to Germany are both mandatory parts of the programme.

DAAD provides support for 18 months: the first 12 months are spent abroad and the remaining 6 months of the return phase are spent in Germany (funding cycle 12+6). The deadline for application is August 31, 2022.

Life sciences and their convergence with digital technologies for prospecting, understanding and sustainably using biological resources

European Commission
Engineering biology applications have grown beyond chemical production to include the generation of biosensor organisms for the lab, animal, and field, modification of agricultural organisms for nutrition and pest/environmental resilience, production of organisms for bioremediation, and live-cell and gene/viral therapies. The rapid expansion of the field has resulted in new tools and new approaches. However, we are still challenged by the need for novel and more robust and interoperable computational tools and models for engineering biology. For example, improved models of synthetic systems (synthetic biology) and of their interaction with their host organisms could help enable more successful engineering. The topic aims to prevent pollution and sustainably manage and use natural
resources within safe planetary boundaries, including in the deployment of the bioeconomy and the bio- based sectors. The proposals should enable prospecting, understanding and sustainable use of biological resources based on their convergence with digital technologies that lead to optimised and more efficient bio-based operations. The award value is EUR 12 000 000.
Eligibility
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be established in one of the eligible countries;

  •  The Member States of the European Union, including their outermost regions
  • The Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs)  are linked to the Member States
  • Eligible non-EU countries; countries associated with Horizon Europe and  low- and middle-
    income countries

The deadline for application is 15 February 2022 for the first stage and 01 September 2022 for the second stage.

International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI)

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a consultant to undertake a study on the informal forage seed market in Ethiopia. Forage production has significant potential to enhance livestock productivity in Ethiopia and to this end projects and NGO’s have promoted forage production for many years. This promotion has included procurement of forage seed and distribution to beneficiary farmers often at highly subsidized prices. The previous work suggests that these transactions are substantial and may have impeded the emergence of a vibrant and self-sustaining forage seed market in Ethiopia.
