The world needs resilient and sustainable food systems to assure the health and well-being of a growing population in the face of unprecedented environmental change and constraints.

The initiative seeks a Program Manager who can provide both tactical and operational support to the program’s mission, goals and priorities.  The Project Manager is responsible for project management of significant, initiative-wide programs, typically with large budgets and sizable faculty and staff involvement.  Key focus areas include partnering to meet program commitments, networking event management, proposal development, communications and outreach.
