Faculty Position in New MS Program in Food Systems and Society

The Department of Food Systems and Society at Marylhurst University invites applications for a 
Assistant/Associate F
aculty teaching position in its new Master of Science in Food Systems and Society program.  Responsibilities include teaching foundation courses; organizing on-campus intensive courses, advising students on their theses and developing and maintaining connections in the field of food systems and society.  


The MS in Food Systems & Society is a two-year, cohort-based graduate program. Online, seminar-style courses combined with on-campus intensive sessions support development of a robust scholar-practitioner community. The low-residency model enables our students to maintain their existing work and personal commitments as well as engage diverse perspectives and communities.

In this program, we study different visions and perspectives on the food system through inquiry and reflection. Through the consideration of fundamental questions, we analyze how food-system conditions developed and how they are addressed, perceived and portrayed. We examine strategies and efforts to create change in the food system.  By integrating our own experience and knowledge, we assess possibilities for improving equity, health and sustainability in food systems at micro and macro levels.
