A one-year, full-time research associate position is available at the Queensland University of Technology (part-time arrangements available as well). The Research Associate will join a dynamic research group dedicated to decision science and social-ecological systems research, looking to empower communities and governments to make more sustainable choices about agricultural production and food consumption. The position is open immediately, and would ideally suit someone with experience in social sciences methodologies and data management, and interests in research that links people and their practices with environmental sustainability and biodiversity conservation.
The primary purpose of the position is to contribute to two Australian Research Council projects focused on the environmental sustainability of agricultural systems. The two projects are:
• ‘Pathways to agri-food supply chains that co-benefit people and nature’ within the School of Biology & Environmental Science and the Centre for Agriculture and the Bioeconomy (led by Ayesha Tulloch); and
• ‘The local, regional and global human networks influencing adoption of sustainable practices in food production systems’ within the School of Architecture and Built Environments and the Centre for the Environment (led by Dr Angela Guerrero-Gonzalez).
