The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) Research Professors

Application Deadline: 31 October 31 yearly

The objective of the programme is to provide institutions and research groups located in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) with the opportunity to establish long-term links with TWAS members to assist in research activities and advanced training and so help develop the local scientific capacities needed. Within the framework of the programme, a number of TWAS Members will be offered appointments as TWAS Research Professors in Least Developed Countries. The appointment will normally be for a period of five years, during which the TWAS Research Professor will be expected to visit the host institution three times for a minimum stay of one month each time. Both the TWAS Research Professor and the host institution will be expected to provide comprehensive reports on completion of each visit. Economy class travel (round-trip) and any additional travel expenses incurred by the TWAS Research Professor will be provided by TWAS as well as an honorarium. The host institution will be expected to cover local expenses.
