EMPLOYMENT: Food & Climate Justice Temporary Postdoctoral Research Assistant, ECI, CCAFS, and Oxfam
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position to work in the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) with the Food Systems research team for a period of 12 weeks, reporting to John Ingram, the ECI Food Systems Programme Leader. The post holder will have responsibility for carrying out research in support of the ‘Food and climate justice’ project under the joint supervision of ECI, CCAFS and Oxfam. This project will build on the Oxfam briefing paper ‘Growing disruption: climate change, food and the fight against hunger’ and will consider how change in climate variability alters the conditions that commonly weaken poor people’s access to food and utilisation of food, and with what effects.
The objective is to deliver a high standard working paper for Oxfam by 31 March 2014 which briefly lays out the conditions (infringements of food justice) that commonly weaken poor people’s access to food and utilisation of food; and particularly, discusses how climate change variations as it relates to climate shocks alters those conditions and with what effects.
