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.
Successful candidates will have an outstanding Master's degree (or
equivalent) in food and agricultural economics, development economics,
general economics, sustainability studies, (food) marketing, or related
social sciences disciplines. Candidates for the postdoc position will
additionally have a relevant PhD degree (completed or near to completion).
All candidates should have strong analytical skills, experience
with relevant research methods, proven interest in topics related to
sustainable food systems, strong computer skills, and excellent command
of the English language. We also expect successful candidates to
be active team players in the RTG. Experience with data collection in
an international context will be a plus. As part of our work-life-balance
strategy, financial support for childcare costs during travel is possible.
The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities
employer and places particular emphasis
on fostering career opportunities for women

women are therefore strongly encouraged to
