For Students

Jobs and Resources

As part of our Fair and Healthy Jobs mission area, we aim to help UC Berkeley students identify pathways to careers in food systems. Beyond growing or preparing food, these pathways might lead to jobs in technical assistance, food policy, value-based supply chains, community advocacy, education, and so on.

BFI Jobs and Fellowships

We hire students or work-study employees and offer fellowships each semester. If you are a student at UC Berkeley interested in working with the Berkeley Food Institute, please visit our Careers page or Fellowships page for information about open positions. 

Food Systems Opportunities Newsletter

During the academic semester, we send out a weekly BFI Food Systems Opportunities Newsletter to help you keep track of recent food-related opportunities on and off campus. These include full-time and part-time jobs, fellowships and internships, volunteer opportunities, open grants, workshops and food systems courses, and more. Scroll to the bottom of this page to sign up for our newsletter.

If you are an employer and would like to advertise a food-related opportunity in our newsletter, please visit our Contact Us page for information on how to submit.

Food Systems Career Pathways

Our food system operates better when we have well trained, well compensated, adaptable, and motivated workers. Since 2017, we have hosted annual career panels to connect our campus community to various career pathways in food systems. Our career pathways programs have also included resumé review nights, farm tours, career fairs, and more.
