Exploring Social Acceptance of the Bioeconomy. Funded PhD Opportunity in Environmental Policy.
Monday, 6 January, 2020
The modern world is dependent upon fossil resources to produce everyday items that we consume. Since these resources are finite and depleting, it is essential to develop alternative technologies based on renewable biological resources. The emerging bioeconomy can support the transition away from a fossil-resource economy, and can help address issues such as climate change and food security. To advance a bio-based economy requires greater knowledge about people's understanding and acceptance of the bioeconomy.
The studentship is worth €18,500 per annum in addition to a €5,500 fee contribution per annum. Applications are invited from students with a background in a wide range of areas including Social Sciences (e.g. economics, psychology, sociology etc), Business, Planning and Environmental Policy.
Closing date for application is 5pm Friday 24th January, 2020.
