Description

The University of Göttingen has position openings for 15 Doctoral Researchers and 1 Postdoctoral Researcher in Sustainable Food Systems (all genders welcome) to join the Research Training Group (RTG) 2654 “Sustainable Food Systems” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The positions involve interdisciplinary research on questions related to “Sustainable Food Systems”. Food and agriculture are playing key roles for many of the global challenges such as poverty, undernutrition, obesity, climate change, and biodiversity loss. It is obvious that the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cannot be achieved without major changes in food production, distribution, and consumption. But what types of changes are useful and how these changes can be implemented politically, economically, and socially are open questions that will be addressed in the RTG, focusing on both rich and poor countries. The Program is implemented in cooperation with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Washington DC and KU Leuven in Belgium. The positions are based in Göttingen (Germany), but will require international travel for data collection and exchange with collaborators.

Compensation

All positions should be filled by 1 September 2021 and are available for a period of three years.

The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale E13 TVL (65% for doctoral and 100% for postdoctoral researchers).

How To Apply

The application deadline is the 15th of February, 2021. More details and the link to the application portals can be found at: https://www.uni-goettingen.de/de/636456.html
