ICRISAT seeks applications for Scientist (Village Level Studies) , to be based at Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh , India.
Village-Level Studies (VLS) were initiated by ICRISAT's Economics Program in India in 1975, and later extended to Africa . The studies have provided important insights about changing household and village livelihoods and helped scientists identify and understand socioeconomic, agro-biological, and institutional constraints to agricultural development in the Semi-Arid Tropics (SAT). In recognition of the profound economic and social changes that have affected the SAT over the past decade, the Social Science research team at ICRISAT, in partnership with national research programs and leading institutes worldwide, resumed its VLS in Asia.
