Biography (Education/Professional Experience/Professional Accomplishments)
Johnny Ogunji obtained a BSc degree in Zoology in 1990 at University of Portharcourt Nigeria; MSc, Fisheries and Aquaculture cum Diploma in Computer Science in 1996 at University of Calabar Nigeria. He got a Ph. D in Aquaculture (Academic grade: Magna Cum Laude) from Humboldt University Berlin, Germany in November 2000. He is a Post Doctoral Fellow of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) Germany. He is a member of World Aquaculture Society.
He worked as an assistant lecturer at Humboldt University Berlin Germany from 1999 and a Guest Scientist at the Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries Berlin Germany in 2001. By 2002 he returned to Nigeria and started work in Ebonyi State University. He has been a Professor of Fish Nutrition since 2008. From 2017 he became a permanent staff of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike (AE-FUNAI) Ebonyi State. He started as the Pioneer Dean, Faculty of Agriculture AE-FUNAI. He served as the Director of Academic Planning from 2017 – 2019 and currently he is the director Centre for Educational Services (CES).
He is a member of the Governing Council Babcock University Ileshan Remo Ogun State Nigeria. He has served as Dean, School of Post graduate Studies, Ebonyi State University (2012 – 2014), pioneer Director, Ebonyi State University Directorate of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (2012 – 2013), Head, Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture Ebonyi State University 2008 to 2011. He was the Ebonyi State University Coordinator of International Linkage/ Cooperation from 2009 – January 2019
Prof Dr Ogunji is Coordinator of the Association of Commonwealth (ACU) – Early Careers: Structured Training for African Researchers (STARS) and Climate Impact Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement In Sub-Saharan Africa Programme (CIRCLE) projects in EBSU 2013 – date.
He has conducted a lot of researches on alternative protein sources that can be used to replace fish meal in diet of fish and livestock. Considering the potentials and importance of housefly maggot meal (magmeal) to solve a serious problem in developing countries, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) Germany, approved his proposal and accepted him for a post doctoral research fellowship in Germany. He conducted the work at the Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries Germany for twenty months from February 2005 to October 2006 and 2010. More than six hundred and fifty thousand Euro (€650,000.00) have been spent on this research. The outcome of this has been ground breaking.
Because of the success of this research on magmeal he received from Federal Ministry of Science and Technology and Raw Materials Research and Development Council a National Research Award in 2011. Also, because of his outstanding scientific accomplishments the biography of Prof Dr. Johnny Ogunji was listed in United States of America (USA) by Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering in the World (2005 – 2006) thus earning him a place among the most accomplished men ad women in the fields of science and engineering in the world.
In 2019 The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) appointed Prof Dr Johnny Ogunji as a reviewer for her most recent postdoctoral fellowship scheme, the Climate Research for Development (CR4D) Fellowship. The CR4D Fellowship is implemented by The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS), the UK DFID’s Weather and Climate information Services for Africa (WISER) programme and the Africa Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
Prof Dr. Ogunji is successful in winning grants. He has served as external examiner and accessed many professors in different Universities. In the course of his academic work in Germany and Nigeria he has successfully supervised over 100 students for BSc, PGD, MSc, and PhD degrees. He was Editor-in-Chief of Nigeria Journal of Biotechnology 2010-2016. He served as the Secretary General Biotechnology Society of Nigeria (BSN) 2007 – 2009. He serves as a reviewer for 30 international Journals and has over 50 journal publications in very reputable journals to his credit. He is married and has 4 Children. He loves God.
