Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (2 years): Modelling Climate-Food-Health System Linkages and Impacts, University of Cape Town
The Climate Change and Indigenous Food Systems, Food Security and Food Safety (CCIFS3 – see www.climatechangeifs3.com) aims to undertake participatory research that can enhance local capacity for Indigenous communities to detect and respond to health outcomes related to climate change impacts on Indigenous food systems, security, safety and health, and characterize Indigenous adaptation pathways that enhance or constrain resiliency in the Arctic, Uganda and Peru.
Within CCIFS3 ACDI is co-leading the modelling of climate-food-health linkages, developing conceptual and numerical models of these linkages, for Indigenous food systems in Peru, Uganda and possibly the Canadian Arctic.
ACDI therefore wishes to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PDRF) in the modelling of climate-food-health systems. The PDRF will be part of a multi-disciplinary team from Canada, UK, Peru, South Africa and Uganda, spanning climate adaptation, agriculture, development and health.
The PDRF will be expected to lead a discrete area of research developing and implementing climate-food-health models. The PDRF will also contribute to research that integrates across climate, biophysical, health and socio-economic aspects of adaptation to climate change.
The PDRF will work closely with counterparts at the University of Leeds and Makerere University, and will be required to make research visits to both the UK and Uganda, and possibly Peru and Canada.
