Dear all,
We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed interdisciplinary postdoctoral researcher who will play a key role in our project that was funded by the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP - http://www.sussex.ac.uk/ssrp), a collaborative initiative by the University of Sussex and Institute of Development Studies to develop interdisciplinary research in sustainability. The project will identify how different forms or modes of cooperation and collective action among small-scale commercial farming enterprises enable them to become more financially, ecologically and socially sustainable and resilient to shocks and stresses, such as extreme weather, price volatility and demographic change.

Your role will also involve research design, data analysis, literature reviews, contribute energetically to SSRP and dissemination activities, alongside general day-to-day project management. The successful candidate will be based in the School of Global Studies but will interact continuously with the whole team across the different Schools/Institutions.

Application deadline is 21 April 2017. For full details and to apply see the following link: http://www.sussex.ac.uk/about/jobs/research-fellow-sustainability-1772

Informal enquiries may be made to Pedram Rowhani (p.rowhani *at* sussex.ac.uk), Shova Thapa Karki (s.thapa-karki *at* sussex.ac.uk), Dominic Glover (d.glover *at* ids.ac.uk), or Seife Ayele (s.ayele *at* ids.ac.uk).

Best wishes,

Pedram Rowhani
