Gender and youth are also crosscutting considerations for all Peanut Lab projects.

The Peanut Lab is housed in the Office of Global Programs (OGP), which strives to open doors to research collaborations, expand international partnerships, and provide students high-quality immersive opportunities throughout the world.

The position will have an administrative home in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication (ALEC) that promotes food, environmental and social sustainability through experiential education.

About the job: 

The position will conduct formative desk and field research, assist in the preparation and consideration of commissioned and competitive calls for research proposals under the Peanut Lab, and assist in the training and implementation of gender sensitive research by researchers from diverse disciplines.

As a member of the Peanut Lab Management Entity at UGA, the Associate will also participate in the administration, monitoring and evaluation of the project, and will travel to Peanut Lab research sites in the USA and foreign countries to monitor progress.

The position is available immediately and the initial appointment is for a minimum of two years. Continuation of the position will depend on performance of the associate, needs by UGA and Peanut Lab, and the availability of funding.
