Entry-level positions for food scientists require a bachelor's degree. In these positions, beginning food scientists assist other scientists as they conduct basic research. Most employers require at least a master's degree for food scientists who will lead research projects. However, some companies will allow those who have only a bachelor's degree to lead research. In contrast, some employers prefer to hire researchers who have a doctoral degree (Ph.D.). Employers also look for applicants who can speak and write clearly.
Colleges and universities require teaching faculty to have a Ph.D. Universities choose candidates based on their area of research and the quality of their published articles.
A master's or doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in agricultural or food science is often needed for advancement. Food scientists with advanced degrees usually begin in research or teaching.
