The deadline to receive applications for CABANA secondments is 15th February. Scientists from Latin America will spend 6 months to pursue a bioinformatics research topic in the challenge areas of the CABANA project. Secondments can be with CABANA partner research institutions in Latin America or in the UK. We encourage you to contact a potential host in advance of an application to discuss and shape your project proposal. See the research interests of the hosts here: http://www.cabana.online/research-secondment.
What is CABANA?
- CABANA is a capacity strengthening project for bioinformatics in Latin America.
- It aims to accelerate the implementation of data-driven biology in the region by creating a sustainable capacity-building programme focusing on three challenge areas – communicable disease, sustainable food production and protection of biodiversity.
- CABANA is orchestrated by an international consortium of ten organisations - nine in Latin America and one in the UK.
- CABANA is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) - part of the UK Aid Budget – from October 2017 to December 2021.
