2015/2016 Grants in 14 European Countries (Australia, Brazil, China, France, Allenvi, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States of America)

Belmont Forum and JPI-Climate Collaborative Research Grants 2015

The Belmont Forum is a group of high-level council from major funding agencies of global environmental change research and international science councils. This institute offered The Belmont Forum and JPI-Climate Collaborative Research Action. These Climate Services aim providing more reliable climate information for the near future, relevant for local and regional users. This call aims to contribute to the overall challenge of developing climate services with a focus on interregional linkages role in climate changeability and predictability.

These Projects should address one or more of the following topics:

  • Understanding past and current variability and trends of regional extremes
  • Predictability and prediction skills for near‐future variability and trends of regional extremes
  • 3‐ Co‐construction of near term forecast products with users

Field of Study / Subjects

The research projects are available for different fields under this program which are mentioned as below:

  • Agriculture
  • Industry
  • Water supply
  • Socio-economic implications of the resultant information
  • Risks and benefits analysis,
  • Impediments to the use of climate understanding in decision making

Other latest All Countries Funding Agencies are also offered for different Research and Projects all over the world.

Duration

 The duration of this research project is 3-4 years.

Awards Description

The research grant is offering a number of grants for the researchers who will be granted this award. These grants can be as:

  • Progress of research consortia supported byat least three participating partner agencies with at least one outside of Europe is a key criterion.
  • Researchers can participate in the research project at their own expense.
  • The amount of public funding available for collaborative research projects through this call is estimated to approximately EUR 15 million.

The post-doc from the present proposal will take part of project “COBRA: A novel COmpound discovery pipeline for rapid and cost-effective identification of bioactives with health beneficial effects in BRAzilian crops”, (FAPESP-Denmark).
The vacancy is open to Brazilians and foreigners who will join the team of investigators of Laboratory of Bioflavours and Bioactive Compounds at the Faculty of Food Engineering at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP, Faculdade de Engenharia de Alimentos, Rua Monteiro Lobato, 80, Cidade Universitária, 13083-862, Campinas, São Paulo, Brasil). Candidates must have obtained their PhD degree within the last 7 (seven) years, in Brazil or abroad, and expertise on bioactive compounds natural product chemistry and enzymatic activity, focusing on oligosaccharides, identification and detection of prebiotic activity assay, fruit and vegetable polyphenols. Fluency in English and ability to work within interdisciplinary teams are also mandatory.
The bioactive compounds from crops will be investigated using state-of-the-art analytical techniques such as High Performance Liquid Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry, High Performance Anion Exchange Chromatography coupled with Pulsed Amperometric Detection (HPAEC-PAD), and Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry.For the oligosaccharides and major phenolic compounds, HPLC will be used, and for lipids, GC-MS will be used.When possible, profiles of the compounds will be obtained directly from the crops via easy ambient sonic-spray ionization mass spectrometry work in positive ion mode (EASI(+)-MS).
Extracts from tropical fruits will also be evaluated for their functional in vivo properties through animals and human tests after pre-selection of in vitro assays.
Antioxidant tests, including Lipophilic and Hydrophilic oxygen-radical-absorbance-capacity (ORAC), fluorescence-recovery-after-photobleaching (FRAP) and 2,2’-azino-bis(3-ethyl-benzothiazoline-6-sulphonic-acid) assay (ABTS), and 2,2-diphenyl-picrylhydracyl (DPPH), will be used to determine the antioxidant effects. Total phenols and total flavonoids will also be quantified.
Applications can be submitted only by e-mail to Professor Glaucia Maria Pastore (selecaoposdoc2015503331@gmail.com). Those interested should send resume (short CV FAPESP Instructions – http://www.fapesp.br/en/6351).
