VI. BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Organisation:

The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), with headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria, is an international non-profit research-for-development (R4D) organization created in 1967, governed by a Board of Trustees, and supported primarily by the Consultative Group of International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). Our R4D is anchored on the development needs of sub-Saharan Africa. We develop agricultural solutions with our partners to tackle hunger and poverty by reducing producer and consumer risks, enhancing crop quality and productivity, and generating wealth from agriculture. We have more than 100 internationally recruited scientists from about 35 countries and 900 nationally recruited staff based in various stations across Africa. Please visit http://www.iita.org/ for more information on IITA.

Programme:

The candidate will join IITA's research team on perennial-based cropping systems in the humid zone of Sub-Saharan Africa. The candidate will be based in Kampala Uganda, but the field work will be conducted in the banana/coffee growing areas of the East African highlands. The work will provide additional strengthening to IITA's activities in the CIALCA project, IITA's LEAD-USAID project on coffee x banana systems in Uganda, and the new CGIAR Programs on the Humid Tropics (CRP 1.2) and Bananas (MP3-RTB). The work is thematically linked to similar work on-going on cocoa-based systems in Central and West Africa through IITA's Sustainable Tree Crops Program (STCP).

Bananas are a primary cash and food crop in the African Great Lakes region, and coffee is the primary source for foreign exchange. Both crops are dominantly grown by millions of smallholder farms in the region. Banana and coffee are often grown on the same farm and play a complementary role.
Most research in the African Great Lakes Region has focused on breeding and IPM in banana and coffee mono-crop systems. However, recent research by IITA provided clear indications that considerable gains in the productivity and profitability of coffee fields can be obtained through intercropping with bananas and through improved nutrient management. There is a need for site-specific recommendations on crop, soil and water management for coffee, grown as a sole crop, but particularly when intercropped with banana. The systems agronomists will identify drivers of systems productivity and explore trade-offs between productivity, profitability, vulnerability to climatic events, and sustainability. This requires an assessment of the economic viability of improved technologies in terms of resource availability, quality requirements, and organisational feasibility.
Although the project activities concentrate on the East African highlands, there is potential spill-over to other tree crop systems such as the cocoa-based systems in Central and West Africa. This gives the APO the opportunity to exchange with, and learn from, the IITA-related research community on tree crops in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Duty Station: IITA - Kampala, Uganda
The candidate will be based in Kampala, Uganda. Kampala is the capital city of Uganda with a population of approximately 2,000,000 people. Kampala has an international airport nearby (Entebbe - 40km distance) with direct flights to major cities in East Africa and Europe. Kampala has good educational, medical and recreational facilities, broad band internet and is accessible to a number of tourist attractions.

VII. HOW TO APPLY

Applications including curriculum vitae, names and addresses of three referees should be addressed to the Human Resources Manager. Please complete our online application form using this link: http://old.iita.org/cms/details/job_application.aspx

The deadline for application is 1 February 2011. Applications received after this date will not be considered. Applicants will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of their application. Thereafter only those shortlisted for interviews will be contacted.

IITA is an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications from women candidates.
