The School of International Development at the University of East Anglia is offering a PhD studentship for research on financial inclusion and high-quality agricultural inputs for helping transform food systems in Kenya. The PhD research will co-design an intervention (with stakeholders) that delivers planting material of improved varieties of sweet potato that is guaranteed to be pathogen-free.
Candidates should hold an undergraduate and a postgraduate masters degree in agricultural economics or equivalent. They preferably have formal training and/or research experience in using both quantitative and qualitative research methods for evaluating interventions. Affinity with Kenyan food systems, smallholder farming and female farmers’ livelihoods will strengthen the application.
