The Project Scientist will conduct an extension-based applied research program addressing policy and economic barriers, motivations, and opportunities that influence agricultural producers’ transition to economically viable, environmentally sustainable, regenerative, and equitable practices. The Project Scientist will work to develop effective ways to meet the needs of producers (who have diverse scales and resource capacities across urban, rural and regional contexts) and help them overcome economic and policy-related challenges as they transition to practices based on agroecological principles (including but not limited to new market opportunities, circular and solidarity economies, soil health, organic production, integrated pest management, crop diversification, culturally relevant foods, practices that enhance food security, and fair labor practices), and disseminate findings on policy and economic solutions that benefit farmers, farmworkers, communities, and society more broadly.
