Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in Agricultural Ecology? Are you interested in climate resilient food systems in Africa? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research-intensive Universities?
GCRF-AFRICAP is a new programme of work funded by the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund. The programme’s aim is:
- To identify and implement evidence-based policy pathways to facilitate the development of sustainable, productive, climate smart agricultural systems to meet food security and economic development needs.
- To do this we will work in partnership to build capacities across UK and African organisations.
We are seeking an agricultural ecologist to work on climate-smart agricultural practices in large- and small-holder agriculture in southern and eastern Africa. The post is part of the Leeds-led Global Challenges Research Fund programme, Agricultural and Food-system Resilience: Increasing Capacity and Advising Policy (GCRF-AFRICAP) project, an interdisciplinary team of biologists, climate scientists, socio-economic researchers and international development planners, focussing on four case study countries in southern and eastern Africa.
