Applications for IRCP-CRIOBE GRANTS 2018 are now open (http://www.ircp.pf/en/) !

The Institute for Pacific Coral Reefs (IRCP) and the CRIOBE (Centre for Island Research and Environmental Observatory) will offer four grants in 2018 to young scientists (PhDs and Post-doctorates, under 35 years old) for research projects focused on the coral reefs of French Polynesia. Grants will be available to both French nationals and foreigners. To support the advancement of science in the Pacific, one of the four award recipients will come from the South Pacific Islands. Each grant is valued at 4500 € (euros) and will support travel expenses to and from French Polynesia, and accommodation and research costs while at the CRIOBE research station (www.criobe.pf).

Selected candidates will have 12 months from the time the award is granted, to complete their research projects. Within a month of completing fieldwork, the candidates will provide a preliminary report of their findings. The successful candidates will provide a final report, including at least one publication in a peer reviewed scientific journal of a high standard, in the following year. The grant should be mentioned in reports and publications under the name “IRCP – CRIOBE”.
