The UK Food Systems Centre for Doctoral Training (UKFS-CDT) programme provides a unique opportunity for transformative and interdisciplinary food systems research. It is an innovative way of conducting a PhD centred on co-creation and exposure to a varied range of actors operating in UK food systems.

The UKFS-CDT is offering up to 28 fully funded studentships for cohort 3 in 2023.

Research will be interdisciplinary, combining natural sciences and social sciences approaches, and linked to food systems stakeholders. The research scope includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Food environment, consumer behaviour, diets, nutrition and health (Healthy People)
  • Livestock health and welfare (Healthy Animals)
  • Environmental sustainability, climate change (Healthy Environment)
  • Food production, distribution, manufacturing and waste (Healthy Economy)
  • Food system governance and resilience (Healthy Society)

The UKFS-CDT welcomes interest from applicants with natural science, including STEM or social science backgrounds. Recruitment is not restricted to UK applicants*, but PhD projects must be UK food systems focussed.
