Research Associate (Fixed Term)

The work is funded under a Global Challenges Research Fund project TIGR2ESS: Transforming India's Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies.

This post will provide support for the Flagship Project: Defining a Second Green Revolution for India. The research will explore the societal choices that will inform the 'second green revolution', and how this will be negotiated in India's contemporary political economy. It will seek to understand how the new agrarian ecosystem will balance the interests of farmers, agricultural labour, the food industry, distribution networks and supply chains, consumers and those involved in providing support services and inputs to this sector.
