Southeast Asian University Consortium for Graduate Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC)

The UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems will offer one fellowship in the amount of C$7500 to a faculty member of a SEARCA/University Consortium member university to come to UBC for a minimum of six weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks. Faculty members intending to visit UBC for a period of less than six weeks will receive an amount prorated on the basis of the duration of their stay. While all faculty members of UC-SEARCA member universities are eligible to apply for this fellowship, preference will be given to junior faculty members.

The UBC-UC-SEARCA Fellow will be expected to present a seminar on their research, and give at least two guest lectures in one or more of our existing courses. At least one of these lectures should be in an undergraduate course. The balance of the time can be spent meeting with Faculty colleagues to enrich the fellow’s research and teaching experience.

Application Procedure:

Applications for this fellowship should be sent directly to:

Faculty of Land and Food Systems
Suite 248 - 2357 Main Mall
University of British Columbia
Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4

The application should include:

  1. A cover letter describing applicants teaching and research interests and experience, activities intended during the tenure of the Fellowship at UBC, and any interaction or correspondence of the applicant with a faculty member in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems.
  2. Detailed curriculum vitae of the applicant.

Application Deadline: January 1, 2014. The selected fellow will be informed by April 1, 2014 and will be expected to visit UBC between September 1, 2014 and August 31, 2015.
