Call for Female Applicants: The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) invites applications for three AIMS-Canada Research Chairs in Climate Change Science to be based at AIMS Rwanda. Each Chair will be provided up to USD 970,000 over a four-year period and tasked with executing a world-class research program able to contribute significantly towards building both the human capital and the scientific knowledge base required to solve important climate change-related problems in Africa and beyond. Applications are invited from outstanding female African and non-African scientists whose research seeks to elucidate the scale and causes of climate change; predict climatic conditions, especially at small temporal and spatial scales; and develop and apply novel strategies for climate change adaptation and mitigation. Preference will be given to applicants whose proposed research addresses issues relating to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including, but not limited to, the following: SDG #2 (zero hunger), SDG #3 (good health and well-being), SDG #11 (sustainable cities and communities).
