In the context of a partnership between Institute for Pacific Coral Reefs (IRCP) and two french polynesian firms, Société des Nouveaux Hôtels (SNH) et Société Polynésienne de Développement Durable (SPDD), some grants are available to young scientists (PhD, Post-doctorate or degrees of similar levels – < 35 yrs) of French nationality or foreigners to conduct a scientific project in the French Polynesia coral reefs.
Each year, three or four candidates are selected by the IRCP scientific committee in which some members of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) are included. Among the 3 or 4 candidates selected, at least one candidate will come from South Pacific Island States in order to promote training for scientific research in these countries. The sum of each grant will be 4500 € (euros), in order to cover travel expenses to and from French Polynesia, accommodation and research costs.
Selected candidates will perform their respective projects in no more than 12 months, following the grant notification. A preliminary report will be written in the month following the end of field work. A final report, including at least one publication project in a peer reviewed scientific journal of a high standard, will be provided by the successful candidate in the following year. The grant should be mentioned in reports and publications under the name “IRCP – Société des Nouveaux Hôtels – Société Polynésienne de Développement Durable”.
