Partnerships for progress

The CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network will be partnering with Pennsylvania State University to develop a multi-year Gender Research and Integrated Training series for CGIAR researchers and postdoctoral fellows. This year’s workshop series will take place from June 6-24, 2016. The deadline for application is February 15. 

Preference will be given to CGIAR social scientists who are postdoctoral fellows in their first or second year of appointment at a CGIAR Center, especially (but not exclusively) those whose fellowship is supported by an award to a CGIAR Research Program from the Consortium Office. We are also interested in teamed-up applications from a CGIAR postdoctoral fellow and their supervising social scientist who are conducting research together and planning to co-author papers.  A review board of key expert faculty will review all applications after the due date. Application review packets will be evaluated based on their level of interest in and commitment to gender research.

Applications  should be submitted to Deanna Behring via email ( and are due by February 15 2016.  Applicants will be notified by March 1In 2016, the workshop will take place from June 6-24.
