Project-Supporting Women in Science

A Research Capacity Building Programme: Inter-Universities Consortium on Climate Change, Sustainability & Conservation-CCSC-IUB, Partner; Institute for Global Health and Development (IGHD) at the Aga Khan University. IGHD has recently launched a research capacity building programme titled ‘Supporting Women in Science’. The project aims to curtail the gender differentials and biases in research and scientific leadership, and advance research capacity of early-career female researchers/ practitioners (Assistant Professor and below OR post-doctoral fellows) in low- and middle-income countries of South-Central Asia and East Africa (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania). It prioritizes capacity building in (especially in Climate change and its impact on maternal, newborn, and child health, Health and health-related SDGs implementation and monitoring etc). The project combines mentorship, training, and career development in a four-year program, including a fully funded research fellowship (distance/remote learning) at University of Oxford or AKU. This programme especially for scholars and faculty at IUB-Pakistan (& CCSC Partners all around Pakistan), and encouraging early-career female faculty/post-doc fellows/research managers to apply. Find attached a detailed brochure of the programme and some important links.
