PhD opportunity at RVC!

RVC has published a 4 years fully-funded opportunity to research the impact of food chain health risk messages on consumers’ demand for poultry products in India


Project Summary

Rapidly changing poultry production systems in India can potentially generate risks of disease transmission as poultry producers adapt to meet increasing consumer demand. It is unclear how food chain information on disease risks influences consumer demand and producer supply of poultry products. Understanding the determinants of consumer demand and the impact of foodchain health risk messages (FHRMs) is crucial to support adequate food policy planning. This project aims to assess the impact of FHRMs on consumer demand for poultry products and on poultry production systems in India.

The project is a component of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) One Health Poultry Hub, which aims to meet Asia’s growing demand for chicken meat and eggs while minimising the risks to public health. The PhD studentship will be part of the London Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), an intercollegiate food systems research consortium incorporating researchers from RVC, SOAS and LSHTM.

I am reaching out to let you know that RVC is advertising the following PhD opportunity. This PhD will be part of a large project, the “GCRF One Health Poultry Hub” and it represents a very good opportunity to develop expertise on One Health Economics and food system analysis.
