The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) graduate fellowship program has grown from strength to strength. In 2015, ILRI offered opportunities to more than 200 young scientists and graduate fellows from national agricultural research organizations (NARS), universities and other partner institutions globally. These emerging researchers undertake research for development activities within ILRI projects, access ILRI research facilities and are mentored by ILRI senior scientists, themselves engaged in cutting-edge agricultural research.

ILRI has fellowship collaboration agreements with a wide range of organizations and programs including the self-governing organisation of German higher education, DAAD, and the Climate Impact Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement in sub-Saharan Africa program. Earlier this year, ILRI also established ILRI Graduate Fellowship Journal Club, offering platform for ILRI fellows to meet regularly and discuss recent journal publications, exchange ideas, and critically evaluate each other’s work.

This brief was published as part of an internal ‘capacity development’ week at ILRI in December 2015.

  1. Hi,
    Do you have any opportunities at the moment for a master’s thesis research particularly in molecular biology? please let me know.

    Thanks!
