PhDs: Societal and environmental consequences of post-animal bioeconomy, University of Helsinki, Finland

Deadline: 
1 Mar 2019

The Rur­alia In­sti­tute at the University of Helsinki is seeking two PhD students to join the project "Cultured meat in post-animal bioeconomy – changing relationships between humans and farmed animals” led by Senior Researcher Toni Ryynänen and Associate Professor Hanna Tuomisto.

The first position will use social science to explore what kind of meanings individuals, groups and food system organisations associate with farmed animals in this changing landscape.

The second position will use natural science to model the environmental impacts of transforming food systems, and especially livestock production, with novel technologies such as cellular agriculture.

For more details, see here. The deadline is 1 March 2019 for both positions.
