Dear colleagues,

I am looking for 2 new graduate students within my field of research (Critical 
Urban Food Geographies) for Master and PhD level studies in the Department of 
Geography, University of Calgary.
Supervision: Dr. Marit Rosol, Canada Research Chair in Global Urban Studies and 
Associate Professor of Geography

Position 1 (PhD level) entails research assistance with a SSHRC funded research 
project on community food initiatives in Calgary, Alberta and their connection 
to housing issues.
Position 2 (MA or PhD level) is an open call for research proposals related to 
one of my research interests: a) Alternative food networks as alternative 
economies, b) Urban food movements, c) Relation between food and housing 

Main qualifications:

  *   Outstanding record of academic performance
  *   Background in human geography, urban studies, (urban) sociology or 
related fields
  *   Excellent verbal communication and academic writing skills (English), 
critical thinking
  *   Familiarity with and/or research experience in Calgary or other Canadian 
cities (for position 1 required, for position 2 an asset)
  *   Strong interest and research experience in one or more of the following 
fields: critical urban food studies, urban food movements, urban social 
movements, community food security, food justice, alternative food movements, 
urban inequality, housing
  *   Expertise in empirical (qualitative) social science research methods
  *   Enthusiasm for research, including experience in publishing

Student support will come from a combination of teaching assistantships (TA) 
and scholarships from the Department of Geography and – for position 1 only – a 
research assistantship (RA) from the supervisor.  Program start date will be 
September 2019, ideally the RA will start earlier.
