The Agricultural Sustainability Institute (ASI) at UC Davis is pleased to announce a new initiative to improve the sustainability of global agricultural raw materials sourcing, with particular emphasis on key commodities. The project is intended to critically review current best practice and prototype indicators of key dimensions of food system sustainability at various scales (from global concerns to sustainable intensification at the field level) and to assess and test indicators for a comprehensive range of sustainability issues. ASI, established in 2006, provides a hub that links initiatives and education in sustainable agriculture and food systems across the broader University of California and with other partners across the State of California and, increasingly, across the nation and farther afield. ASI’s mission is to ensure access to healthy food and to promote the vitality of agriculture today and for future generations. We address these goals through integrative research, education, communication and early action on big, emerging issues. We are looking to fill 2 postdoctoral researcher positions in on this project.
