A continuación encontrará información importante para las mujeres interesadas en adelantar estudios de doctorado o Postdoctorado en las áres de la Ciencia y la Ingeniería. La Fundación Schlumberger con el programa Faculty of the future prevé la financiación de estudios universitarios avanzados. La fecha límite para aplicar es el 30 de Noviembre de 2007
The goal of Faculty For The Future is to support role models and facilitate gender balance in science and engineering faculties at key universities in emerging economies. For many women the biggest obstacle to overcome is obtaining funding to start their PhDs. This is why most of the Faculty for the Future grants focus on those critical first two years.
Potential candidates would be typically finishing a Master’s or PhD program and may already be in junior faculty positions in their home country. They would be planning to pursue further study overseas, PhD or Post-Doc, to develop their academic careers with a view to teaching in their home countries. As teachers, they will contribute to the ultimate vision of the program which is the attracting of more talented young women into science and engineering careers. Sponsored by the Schlumberger Foundation, Faculty for the Future has funded PhD or Post-Doc studies in science disciplines for 67 women from 25 countries since inception four years ago.
The application deadline is November 30, 2007.
