IBRO and UNESCO’s International Bureau of Education (IBE) are offering 3-year IBRO/IBE-UNESCO Research Fellowships. It is part of the collaborative Learning Science Initiative, which aims to support and translate basic neuroscience research on learning and the brain to educators, policy makers and governments.
Applications will be reviewed by Senior and Mid-Career Scientists with 10 years of experience in learning neuroscience. IBRO and IBE–UNESCO will consider researchers from all regions of the world.
Fellows will be based at IBE–UNESCO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, so they can learn about policy-making in an international context, as well as receive support with policy vocabulary and messaging. A separate agreement will be signed by the fellow and IBE-UNESCO with each participant to cover the duration of the IBRO/IBE-UNESCO Research Fellowship. If travel is affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the possibility of completing the Fellowship program remotely will be considered.
IBRO and IBE–UNESCO cannot arrange accommodation, visas, insurance, travel or other related logistics. This will be the responsibility of the organizer. Each student will be provided with a personal office, including a computer, desk and Internet access.
- Six written briefs (max. 5 pages each; 2 each month) to rearticulate neuroscience research in accessible language with clear implications for policy and practice.
- Give an IBE talk on your own research project or any other relevant topic related to neuroscience and education.
- Liaise with other IBRO/IBE staff and IBE staff.
