A. G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship Programme 2024/2025

Deadline: Unspecified

The 2024–2025 A. G. Leventis African Biodiversity Fellowship Program is now accepting applications. The Tasso Leventis Professor of Biodiversity in the Department of Biology, Professor Milner-Gulland, and her colleagues at the Interdisciplinary Center for Conservation Science are in charge of this new fellowship program, which was introduced in September 2021. It gives researchers in academic institutions, government, and NGO personnel involved in biodiversity conservation the chance to interact with researchers based at the University of Oxford and to take advantage of the resources, training, and opportunities the University provides. The program provides the opportunity to spend up to three months at Oxford University, where participants can take training sessions, network and form partnerships, write papers, and generate ideas. Additionally, it provides networking opportunities, training, and remote assistance before and after the time spent in Oxford. Successful applicants can spend their Fellowship in any Department of the University as long as their project is within the sphere of conservation.


  1. To support conservation practitioners in the local and international NGO sectors, government officials who are designing and implementing conservation policies, and businesses developing and implementing corporate biodiversity strategies to build their skills, capabilities and networks and thereby enhance their ability to contribute to conservation in their home country;
  2. To ensure that Oxford’s research is informed by, and meaningful for, real-world conservation issues, and is carried out in collaboration with in-country end-users;
  3. To build long-term relationships between Oxford researchers and conservation practitioners, strengthening Oxford’s ability to make a real-world difference.


  • If you are a senior member of staff, who would benefit from the opportunities offered by taking part in our programme and stepping away from your NGO, government, or business environment and commitments for a short period of time, to develop new strategic approaches, write up their ideas, or build partnerships, then this scheme may be right for you.
  • Alternatively, if you are at a relatively early stage in your career, and would benefit from the academic possibilities offered by the University of Oxford and the ICCS group you are also particularly welcome to apply. Particularly if you would benefit from learning new skills, analysing and writing up your datasets, and building an international network.
