The vision for the center is to bridge research and policy practitioner worlds by coordinating work across disconnected food policy communities (1) obesity, overnutrition, non-communicable diseases; 2) hunger & food insecurity; 3) the reciprocal relationship of agriculture and the environment; and 4) food safety and defense. The center will engage in work from the most global at the multi-state or state level outside the US, at the US national level, and also at a very local level, investing time and resources into projects in Durham, NC and in the Carolinas. 

This is a full-time, one year contract, renewable annually thereafter contingent on Center funding. The full job description can be found here. Applicants should submit their CV and cover letter via email to Heather Griswold (heather.griswold@duke.edu). Application deadline is end of day Friday, September 9, 2016.
