West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) Scholarship Programme 2021

Posted on Tue 27th Apr, 2021 - --- (0 comments)

The West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) is a West African international organization with focus on academic and multidisciplinary research, building graduate-level scientific capacity and serving policy makers in West Africa with science-based advice on adaptation to climate change impacts and land use management. It cooperates with many agencies and universities in the West African region, providing a knowledge platform of excellence for its partners. WASCAL is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), multilateral and bilateral partners and its 11 West African member countries, namely Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, The Gambia and Togo.

We invite applications from suitably qualified candidates for:

Title: 2021 Admissions into Full PhD Scholarship Programme in West African Climate Systems

Location: Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo, Nigeria (with Research Visit to Germany for 6 Months)

The Doctoral Research Programme in West African Climate Systems (DRP-WACS) of the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) hosted at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), Nigeria, seeks to admit the fifth batch of students for the PhD programme in the field of West African Climate Systems and its applications.

The host department in FUTA, the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science is recognized by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) as the University component of the Regional Meteorological Training Centre in Nigeria. The department is renowned in the country and the entire West Africa for its track records in manpower development of experts in weather and climate related disciplines. Over the years, the department has trained professional meteorologists for Meteorological Agencies in Nigeria, Ghana, the Gambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, etc. It has also trained scientists and experts in other climate related fields. In close collaboration with the department, DRP-WACS has successfully trained and empowered individuals across West Africa who are now consultants to organizations such as the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), World Bank (WB) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Over forty West African students have benefited from the full scholarship scheme which includes accommodation, tuition, travel and cost of research. These graduates have been providing improved prediction, adaptation and management of the climate system over West Africa and beyond.

Goal of the Programme
The main goal of the programme is to build capacity in climate science, applications and risk management aimed at solving climate-related socio-economic challenges in Africa. The programme is geared towards producing professional personnel equipped with the research and technological skills to manage climate related issues in priority areas such as health, water, energy, agriculture (food security) and disaster risk reduction.

The PhD programme is thus primed to bridge the skills gaps by providing transformative climate management solutions to atmospheric, agriculture, water resources, health, coastal, urban issues, environmental and other socio-economic problems occasioned by the interplay of extreme weather and climate.

Students are expected to carry out original research projects and to specialise in any of the following areas:

  • Numerical Weather Prediction and Forecasting
  • Climate Change Applications
  • Agricultural Meteorology
  • Satellite Meteorology, Instrumentation, Remote Sensing and GIS Applications in Meteorology
  • Coastal Risk Management
  • Urban Climatology and Air Quality
  • Biometeorology (Health)
  • Water Resources Systems
