George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

About the Department:

The Department of Nutrition and Food Studies is one of six academic units within the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) which comprises the departments of Social Work, Global and Community Health, Health Administration and Policy, Rehabilitation Science and the School of Nursing. The College is currently transitioning to become a College of Public Health. George Mason University is an R1-ranked research university and among the most diverse in the US.

The Department of Nutrition and Food Studies was founded in 2011 and there are currently seven full-time faculty members, with backgrounds ranging from food science, global nutrition, obesity, performance nutrition, public health nutrition, maternal and child health, to food systems. The Department offers an MS in Nutrition and both undergraduate minors and graduate certifications in Food Security and Nutrition. A dietetics concentration within the MS degree recently became accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), which enables credentialing of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN). The first dietetics class matriculated in the Fall of 2022.

The Department is housed in the Peterson Family Health Sciences Hall and includes faculty and staff offices, a state-of-the-art
Nutrition Teaching Kitchen and a
Human Nutrition Assessment Lab. In addition, Peterson Hall includes the College’s
Population Health Center, offering clinical and research space for faculty and experiential learning opportunities for students. More information about the Department is available at
