The Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex Business School are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow in Policies Transforming Food Systems to work with Dr Katerina Psarikidou on a 5-year project, called FoodsEqual, which is funded by the UKRI ‘Transforming Food Systems’ Strategic Priorities fund and commenced in February 2021. The project has a strong Policy Research strand, which this post is requested to support. Aim of the policy research strand is to work with policy, industry and local communities in order to map, analyse, assess, co-design and inform policies for transforming the UK’s food system in more inclusive and socio-environmentally just ways.  

The project builds on a strong collaboration between the Universities of Reading, Sussex, Plymouth, Cranfield and Kent, plus numerous partners from community and civil society organisations, the food sector and the policy world. Based on the principles of research co-production, the project is envisioned to provide citizens of socio-culturally diverse communities with choice and agency over the food they consume, the chains through which they access their food, and the policy frameworks that are needed to support the vision of a more inclusive and socio-environmentally just agrifood system for all.

The Research Fellow will

  • undertake fieldwork and other research activities, based on social science research methods
  • collate, write-up and analyse project findings and contribute to peer reviewed publications
  • help with the design, delivery and write-up of novel policy impact and engagement activities and novel policy impact outputs, also based on the use of digital and other creative methods
  • network and work with policy, industry and community stakeholder groups to deliver policy impact
  • disseminate results to policy and other non-academic audiences whilst considering research and policy impact
  • support SPRU and the national research teams to meet project deliverables

Please contact Dr Katerina Psarikidou (a.psarikidou@sussex.ac.uk)  for informal enquiries.
