The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recently commissioned an ethnographic study to observe real-life behaviour in domestic and business kitchens, as well as collecting data on consumers' self-reported food safety behaviour through their Food and You 2 survey. This study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr Gulbanu Kaptan and Dr Joshua Weller from the Centre for Decision Research at Leeds University Business School.

The FSA and Leeds University Business School have agreed to co-fund a PhD studentship to deliver secondary analysis of data collected through the above projects.

As a jointly-funded doctoral student, you will have the opportunity to conduct applied research that support the development of FSA policy recommendations. Additionally, you will benefit from a supportive environment led by experienced Leeds University Business School academics and FSA practitioners specialised in the fields of judgment and decision making, consumer behaviour, and food safety.

The University of Leeds is a full-service business school, regularly world ranked by the Financial Times, QS and The Economist, and one of a small number of schools worldwide to be triple accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. We deliver undergraduate, masters, MBA, PhD, executive and professional education and online study, to over 5000 students from around 100 countries.

The Centre for Decision Research in Leeds University Business School, where the doctoral student will be based, has a strong interdisciplinary focus that has led to research collaborations across a wide range of academic disciplines, with much work being applied and externally funded. Members of the Centre publish extensively in academic journals, edited books and practitioner journals, as well as presenting at major national and international conferences. 

The FSA is an independent non-ministerial government department working across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to protect public health and consumer’s wider interests in food. The role of social researchers in FSA is to work collaboratively with colleagues across the Agency (and beyond) to ensure evidence and research are embedded in the recommendations for future policy and delivery options.

As a doctoral student, you will be supervised by Dr Gulbanu Kaptan and Dr Joshua Weller. Both academics have strong publication records and secured research funding from a number of UK and international funding agencies.
