Postdoc, Canada

 23rd Apr 2021

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Animal Welfare)

Animal Welfare Program, University of British Columbia
Vancouver, Canada

 

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow to lead research activities related to stakeholder views of gene editing technology. This research project will focus on potential animal welfare enhancing gene-edited technologies as applied to dairy and beef cattle, and will examine perceptions, trust and adoption in interested groups varying from farmers to consumers. A better understanding of perceptions towards gene-editing technologies may inform future policy and communication efforts that can enhanced trust in the food system, and help Canadian food businesses more confidently predict which gene-editing technologies are likely to find societal acceptance.

Specific activities will include designing and conducting research projects with dairy industry stakeholders, writing manuscripts and presenting results at industry and academic conferences, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. The postdoctoral appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extension.
