Do you have what it takes to make an impact on global food and nutrition security? We are looking for exceptional candidates to help drive forward our work to improve the lives of poor people.

The Natural Resources Institute (NRI – https://www.nri.org/) of the University of Greenwich carries out specialised research, teaching, training, and consultancy with a focus on food, agriculture, environment, and sustainable livelihoods.

NRI is currently expanding its interdisciplinary research excellence to address food and nutrition security, especially in Africa. This expansion is funded by UKRI’s Research England under the ‘Expanding Excellence in England’ scheme. Elements of this new investment include new staff, PhD studentships, infrastructure, and partnerships (see www.nri.org/FanSI). Investment will be across four specific areas:

  • Climate Change, Agriculture and Natural Resources
  • Sustainable Agricultural Intensification
  • Food Loss and Waste
  • Food Systems for Improved Nutrition
