Job Description

The AgriFood Systems Analyst will lead quantitative and qualitative economic research which includes supply chain analysis, agri-business analysis, on-farm productivity analysis, and cost-benefit analysis with applications to the agrifood sector. These analyses are crucial to understanding how we can maintain the viability of agrifood production (e.g., meat, horticulture, grain and fish) in a changing world, and how changes to markets and policies impact those who produce and consume food. The scope of work will be broad, covering productivity, value addition, environmental impacts, food security, nutrition and associated policy design, and will focus on agrifood systems in both Australia and low-income countries abroad.

The position may require occasional international travel, including to developing countries.
