    根據國家留學基金管理委員會與國際玉米小麥改良中心(CIMMYT)簽署的合作備忘錄,2017年將聯合資助10名中國學者和博士生赴CIMMYT及其所屬區域辦事處(除中國外)合作研究或聯合培養博士生。重點資助學科包括:玉米和小麥遺傳育種、種質資源保存、功能基因組學、生物信息學、分子標記和轉基因技術在種質改良中的應用、改良產量和抗逆性的生理研究、保護性耕作和養分管理、谷物化學、加工品質和營養及農業經濟學等。
    國家留學基金委員會提供留學人員在外期間的獎學金,包括生活費(博士生1350美元/月,訪問學者/博士后1400美元/月)、健康保險、一次性往返國際機票及簽證申請費。CIMMYT承擔留學人員的研究費用,從總部往返墨西哥境內各個試驗站的交通費及在境外的接送機費用。訪問學者/博士后的資助期限為3-24個月,聯合培養博士生的資助期限為6-24個月。
    申請人需符合國家留學基金委規定的申請條件,并獲得CIMMYT正式邀請函。請有意者于2016年11月30日前將英文個人簡歷和研究簡介發至中國農業科學院作物科學研究所研究員/ CIMMYT 中國辦事處何中虎主任郵箱,zhhecaas@163.com。
    關于2017年項目的申請時間與方法請關注國家留學基金委員會網站(www.csc.edu.cn),12月上旬前將登出2017年CSC-CIMMYT聯合培養博士生和訪問學者項目通知,關于項目簡介、申請條件與流程可參考2016年相關介紹,http://www.csc.edu.cn/require/download.asp?PROJECTCODE=620068
    CIMMYT成立于1966年,總部設在墨西哥,是國際農業磋商組織(CGIAR)所屬的15個國際研究中心之一,是國際農業研究領域最有影響的少數研究機構之一,被譽為綠色革命的發源地,其宗旨是用玉米和小麥科技改善民生。主要優勢和貢獻包括,擁有的2.8萬份玉米和15萬份小麥資源居世界首位,并無償提供所有國家利用;發展中國家約50%玉米和小麥品種含有CIMMYT親本,年新增效益約35億美元,為人類糧食安全做出了重要貢獻;先后培訓了1萬多名科研人員。CIMMYT創始人、小麥育種家布勞格博士獲1970年諾貝爾和平獎,第二代小麥育種家Rajaram博士于2014年獲世界糧食獎,玉米育種家Vasal博士于2000年獲世界糧食獎。我國與CIMMYT合作始于20世紀70年代,在種質資源引進與人才培養等方面取得了顯著進展,已成為我國小麥和玉米最重要的國際合作伙伴,1997年在中國設立了CIMMYT辦事處,目前在我國建立了4個研究團隊。國家自然基金會國際合作局馮鋒局長現任CIMMYT理事。我國與CIMMYT在小麥和玉米育種及人才培養等領域的合作成就包括:(1)引進了2.3萬份CIMMYT資源,合作育成小麥品種300多個,累計推廣6億多畝,目前年推廣面積約3000萬畝;合作育成玉米品種50多個,在西南地區發揮了重要作用。(2)合作發表論文300多篇,舉辦國際會議等20多次,培養300多名科技骨干,8名CIMMYT科學家獲我國政府友誼獎。

The program includes but is not limited to the following themes:
? Maize and wheat genetics and breeding
? Functional genomics and gene discovery
? Ex situ germplasm conservation and allele discovery
? Bioinformatics and data management
? Application of molecular markers and transgenic technology
? Crop physiology for yield improvement and tolerance to abiotic stress
? Conservation agriculture and nutrient management
? Cereal grain chemistry, quality and nutrition
? Social sciences and agricultural economics

Duration and benefits

? Visiting PhD students
CSC will provide successful candidates with a stipend+subsidy adding to USD 1350 per month for up to 24 months, health insurance, a round-trip international airfare and visa application fees.

? Visiting scientists and postdoctoral fellows
