Agricultural Biotechnology and Civil Society in sub-Saharan Africa
This Postdoctoral Fellowship will advance our understanding of the creation of research and innovation capabilities in developing countries – highlighting the roles of non-governmental organisations in the specific case of agricultural biotechnology in Africa. The overarching objective of the fellowship is to prepare the investigator for a career as an interdisciplinary researcher and science policy analyst, where he will work to extend the application of science and technology studies (STS) in developing countries. Through communication and dissemination of the PhD thesis, the investigator aims to theoretically link STS and development studies, particularly by extending the critical civil society approach to analyses of biotechnology developed in PhD. Through engagement with stakeholders, the fellowship will contribute to policy and verify findings to develop a future research agenda.
