Food System Seminar- Building a Career in Food Systems Research and Practice
Building a Career in Food Systems Research and Practice
The science, expertise, and collaborations among scientists involved with sustainable agriculture and sustainable food systems has evolved over the past few decades, along with changes and challenges in the U.S. food system. Building an academic career in this arena offers both opportunity and challenges. This conversation will explore paths forward particularly for early career scholars like Discovery Theme hires, including social, cultural, and resource barriers, and how to maneuver through and around them.
