Trinity College Dublin is seeking a highly motivated, collaborative researcher, with expertise in Natural Capital Accounting, to join the interdisciplinary Farm Zero C project.
Farm Zero C is an SFI-funded collaboration between industry and academia, which aims to deliver a range of strategies to help to create a more sustainable and resilient dairy sector.
