Why nurture and support early career nutrition scientists –why not?!

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


It would be easy to say that more is needed to support our early career nutrition scientists, but first it is worth highlighting some of the excellent opportunities that already exist and on which we can and should build upon. Early career nutrition scientists progress to work in many sectors including research, health care, public health, media and industry. For the purposes of this Editorial, I have focused on opportunities available for those working in a research environment and ways in which we can (and should) nurture and support early career nutrition scientists working in an academic/research setting. For this group, I hope to convince you (if you need such convincing) of the importance of fostering the next generation of researchers so that they are well positioned to undertake high-quality integrative nutrition research.
