He returned to Kenya where he taught and later became chairman of the Department of Crop Science at the University of Nairobi.

In 1994, he was named Vice Chancellor of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and was later appointed Director General of National Environment Management Authority.

Until his current appointment, Prof Ratemo was serving as Chairman of Africa Union Scientific Research and innovation Council (ASRiC).
