Seventeen scholars were selected to receive OWSD fellowships to pursue their PhDs.
In September, OWSD awarded 17 new fellowships under the postgraduate fellowship programme. The new fellows, who were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, hail from 10 countries and will carry out their PhD research on subjects ranging from the cloning of rice genes to improve yield, to optimizing large scale data clustering, to identifying bacteria in termite guts that can be used to change industrial waste into biofuel. Meet the new fellows below – and wish them luck as they enter this next stage of their scientific careers.
