Sustainability Metrics Posdoctoral Fellow Cohort Hire

The University of Vermont is excited to announce a cluster-hire of post-doctoral associates with a focus on measuring local and regional sustainable food systems. The two-year positions (with potential option for renewal) will work with UVM faculty in collaboration with US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists and will be based at UVM, in conjunction with the ARS Food Systems Research Unit. The post-doctorate associates will work on a specific project funded to benchmark sustainability indicators and metrics to assess the comprehensive sustainability of local and regional food systems in the Northeast. Furthermore, each project will coordinate across teams to develop a common framework that can measure food system sustainability in other local and regional scales. The expected start dates for the hires are expected to be in the fall 2023 or early winter of 2024. All successful applicants will be expected to hold a PhD at the time of appointment in a relevant field and demonstrate academic excellence as evidenced through publications, conference presentations and collaborative engagement.
