Postdoctoral Researcher in Food Systems
School of Geography and the Environment, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3QY
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project on the
connections between food production and consumption at subnational scales.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a new multi-disciplinary research team
on food systems analysis jointly based at the London School of Hygiene and
Tropical Medicine and the Environmental Change Institute. The types of
question we will seek to answer are ‘what are the environmental and health
impacts of food production and consumption at detailed geographical scales',
‘what are the economic costs of those impacts', and ‘how can the impacts and
costs be integrated into decision-making'.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct detailed food
systems analyses across various geographical and sociodemographic domains. You
will contribute to developing a global food systems model with sub-national
detail that connects food production and the associated environmental impacts
with food consumption and the associated health impacts. You will also have
the opportunity to link food systems data to health, environmental, and
economic assessments, and contribute to analyses of food-related health and
environmental impacts and policies.
You must hold, or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in a relevant field
(e.g., data science, geography, environmental science, public health,
economics). You will have experience in food systems modelling and relevant
technical knowledge (e.g., in input-output modelling, applied economic
modelling, environmental/ecological assessments), as well as proficiency in
data analysis and coding. Your writing and communication skills allow you to
interact effectively with different academic communities.
Applications are particularly welcome and encouraged from women, black, and
minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in posts in SoGE. SoGE
and SSEE are committed to equality and value diversity.
This is a full-time post offered for 3 years (with potential for extension).
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to
upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12:00 noon on Friday 23 September 2022,
and interviews will be held the week after.
