The Oxford Silk Group at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford www.oxfordsilkgroup.com is seeking a Research Assistant to study "Life Cycle Analysis of Silks".

The study will focus on the sustainability of silk production and will require data collection and life cycle analysis of sericultural production and processes in the light of sustainability and environmental impacts e.g. soil and water requirements. Important aspects will be silk-insect and food-plant ecology as well as silk processing. Contact Gunnar.Thalwitz@zoo.ox.ac.uk for more information.
