Masters Position in Sustainable Food Systems and Fisheries Governance in the Lake Superior Region

We are seeking an exceptional candidate to undertake Masters research that uses food systems theory as a way of (re)envisioning fisheries governance through an empirical study of the Lake Superior region. Fisheries make vital contributions to the health and livelihoods of people across the globe, with the lifestyles, rituals and daily practices surrounding fishing and fish consumption deeply integrated into the cultures of fishing communities. Lake Superior is an important study area because it shares commonalities with other transboundary environmental settings along with unique features that can be extrapolated to understand transitions towards sustainable fisheries in other places. Familiarity with and/or interest in food systems, governance, qualitative methods and social network analysis would be considered an asset. The successful candidate will be expected to actively work toward developing a thesis in this area, and working effectively in the multi-disciplinary field of food systems sustainability including community partners. We are offering minimum funding of $5,000/year for two years (providing satisfactory performance) and an additional $11,000 in funding that may be available through a Graduate Assistant position and/or scholarship, as determined by the admitting program.

To apply for this position, please send a letter of interest, a CV, transcripts and the names of two references via email to Charles Levkoe clevkoe@lakeheadu.ca.  Candidates will also need to apply (by the appropriate deadline) to undertake their Masters in an appropriate department at Lakehead University starting in September 2018. Please direct any questions to clevkoe@lakeheadu.ca.
