In partnership with Sustainability at Sydney, we are seeking EOIs for two collaborative research projects. This opportunity is open to University of Sydney researchers with 0.2 FTE buy-out (one semester teaching relief) available for Level Bs or Cs, or funding available for PhDs/Postdocs.
The Sustainability Team seeks to understand, and ultimately remove, the barriers to sustainable food choices at University of Sydney campuses. This project seeks analysis and consultation with subject matter experts and relevant University stakeholders to inform engagement and behaviour change initiatives to both improve the availability and variety of sustainable food options, and the uptake of these by students, staff and the university community on our campuses.
Strategy 12 in the University’s Sustainability Strategy commits us to “provide affordable, healthy and culturally acceptable food and beverages that are accepted to all and aligned with recognised sustainable procurement practices”.
