This position will play a key role in delivering the research programme within the Cranfield Institute for Resilient Futures (CIRF) and across our Environment and AgriFood Theme.

You will undertake applied research of direct relevance to policy makers, industry and scientists, with a focus on issues that impact both natural and industrial ecosystems, and developing solutions and understanding that can be applied across sectors. You will need a strong grasp of the multidisciplinary issues involved the short-, medium- and long-term environmental impacts of man-made systems. Much of our current work concerns impacts and risks around big data, food safety and urban resilience; but the future is open.
