The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a Research Associate in the Animal and Human Health programme to contribute to the Urban Infant Foodscapes project.
The Urban Infant Foodscapes project will quantify the burden of enteric infection among young children (6-24 months) and assess risk factors across three domains of the food system: the domestic environment, the local marketplace, and production and supply chain. The aim of this research is to inform the later development of an intervention to address food borne disease (FBD) in young children living in low-income urban communities.
ILRI works to improve food and nutritional security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock. It is the only one of 15 CGIAR research centers dedicated entirely to animal agriculture research for the developing world. Co-hosted by Kenya and Ethiopia, it has regional or country offices and projects in East, South and Southeast Asia as well as Central, East, Southern and West Africa. www.ilri.org
