Three OPEN PhD vacancies within the framework of MYTOX-SOUTH – Mytox-South

Three OPEN PhD vacancies within the framework of MYTOX-SOUTH – Mytox-South | MAIB FTN Community Press Review 2011-2018 | Scoop.it
Ciheam Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
The LEAP-Agri research project MycoSafe-South, the “European–African partnership for safe and efficient use of mycotoxin-mitigation strategies in sub-Saharan Africa”, intends to harness the expertise and infrastructure available in Europe by strengthening the capacity of the Southern partners to tackle the mycotoxin problem and the associated food safety issues. 
This project will identify safe and efficient mitigation strategies to reduce aflatoxins (AFs) and fumonisins (FBs) exposure in Africa, with special focus on children. Food security remains a major challenge in developing countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, with the highest prevalence of undernourishment. Worldwide, cereal-based crops are spoiled by toxigenic moulds and their mycotoxins. Food spoilage by moulds and mycotoxins not only reduces the amount of the available food, and can have deleterious effects for animal & human health, it also adversely affects the ability of Africa to trade with the rest of the world. Acute high-level exposure to AFs leads to human death, which has repeatedly occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa, while chronic exposure to AFs or FBs may cause liver or oesophageal cancer, respectively. AFs and FBs are defined as important causal factors of stunting in African children. AFs are critical for young children since exposure occurs in utero through transplacental passage, and through breastfeeding. Also, weaning foods are cereal- and tuber-based, both of which are susceptible to AFs and FBs. Furthermore, the immunosuppressive effects of mycotoxins enhance the susceptibility of humans and animals to infectious diseases, and worsen the current HIV pandemic. Moreover, mouldy food & feed is frequently fed to food-producing animals, impairing food safety by carry-over to animal products such as milk, meat and eggs. Therefore, there is an urgent research priority for the development of safe, efficient and sustainable post-harvest intervention strategies to reduce animal & human exposure to AFs and FBs, and applicable to both rural small-scale subsistence and commercial farming in Sub-Saharan Africa. The consortium creates opportunities for young PhD researchers to conduct this research at both European and African institutes.

For additional information please contact: dr. Johanna Lindahl (J.Lindahl@cgiar.org) and dr. Gunther Antonissen (Gunther.Antonissen@UGent.be) How to apply Letters of application, including a motivation letter, extensive curriculum vitae, a copy of diplomas and a grading list can be sent by email to Dr. Gunther Antonissen (Gunther.Antonissen@UGent.be) before June 15th, 2018. Provide also contact details of two persons who can be contacted for recommendation. Please clearly mention the reference (MycoSafe-South_poultry) of the PhD for which you apply. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED!

Consultancy: Environmental impact study to support Kuwait Enhanced Protected Agriculture (KEPA) initiative
Job Summary
The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), in collaboration with the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAF), proposes to implement the Kuwait Enhanced Protected Agriculture (KEPA) initiative in order to enhance local food production in support of the food security and food sovereignty strategy of the Government of Kuwait. KEPA will promote in Kuwait a water- and energy-efficient protected agriculture system that incorporates advanced hydroponic technologies and photovoltaic energy. It will address a number of challenges currently facing protected agriculture in Kuwait, including the use of greenhouses that were made for cooler climates, excessive use of water and energy, and the overall high cost of production. In addition to engaging large, medium and small-scale farmers, KEPA will introduce small, family-scale, replicable models of the system within some peri-urban communities to demonstrate its efficacy, viability and sustainability, and encourage wide-scale adoption in such communities. The initiative will also establish a center of excellence in the Wafra area, specializing in hydroponic technologies and protected agriculture, which will act as a knowledge hub and a demonstration site for the latest technologies and applications that improve the efficiency of hydroponic horticulture. A model farm for technology transfer will also be established in the Abdally region. To validate the environmental viability of the proposed KEPA project, ICBA proposes to undertake an environmental impact assessment..Leran more: https://bit.ly/2QnTia5

Management science researcher specialised in digital agriculture for the support of the agroecological transition (M/F) - CIRAD | Deadline 31 May 2018 | MAIB FTN Community Press Review 2011-2018 | Scoop.it
31/05/2018
Ciheam Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
The rise of digital technology (ICT, big data, IA, etc.) is transforming construction, mediation and knowledge-sharing processes between stakeholders for the co-design of innovation in agriculture and is also modifying the organisation of advisory and support services. The situation of southern countries reveals specificities related to the types of innovation, particularly with frugal innovations. However, at both the production level and value chain level, digital agriculture is not free of tensions. The position involves understanding how digital technology can contribute to the agroecological transition through the construction of new knowledge and the facilitation of learning. More specifically, it involves the following: 1) questioning the effects of these new organizational arrangements and digital tools on the evolution of production systems and value chains with regard to the agroecological transition; 2) questioning the design of these digital tools with stakeholders and the use of these tools by farmers, value chains players and advisers; 3) thinking about the insertion of these digital tools in organisational arrangements. The position will involve combining comparative analyses of support-advisory services, surveys on learning and the transformation of farmers' and advisors' practices, as well as action-research with digital and consulting stakeholders, in order to develop generic methods of digital tool co-design. Place France – Montpellier (12 to 24 months) and then Africa (West Africa) – probably - Note: Assignment to southern countries is a preferred form of research at CIRAD. After an initial assignment to Montpellier, other assignments in France or abroad will be considered.
