PhD Opportunity in Food, Agriculture and Sustainability
The Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems & Society (EEES) graduate program at Dartmouth College (New Hampshire, United States) seeks applicants for fully-funded PhD study in the area of sustainability and agro-food supply chains. One position is available this year. The successful candidate will have a demonstrated capacity for conducting original research, and a commitment to methodologies that integrate the social and biophysical sciences, such as political ecology and/or science and technology studies (STS). A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in one of the environmental social sciences (e.g., geography, environmental studies, anthropology, rural sociology or related fields) is preferable. A few examples of potential research topics include food industry sustainability initiatives, the role of big data in agriculture, farmer perspectives on environmental change and/or technological change, or the political ecology of novel foods and food production technologies. To initiate an application please email a brief statement of interest and a CV to Professor Susanne Freidberg (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications can be submitted to EEES at any time. However, most interviews are held in February, and most new students begin in fall term. Prospective students for Fall 2019 are encouraged to complete their applications by 1 December 2018.
