Professor position in food packaging at Aarhus University, Denmark

iFOOD; the Aarhus University Centre for Innovative Food Research, anchored at the Department of Food Science, Aarhus University, Denmark, invites applications at professor level within the area of food packaging. We are looking for successful individuals who prefer to work with highly engaged and motivated staff in an innovative and dynamic working environment.

iFOOD is an interdisciplinary research centre funded by the Faculty of Science and Technology at Aarhus University, but includes collaboration and expertise across Aarhus University, see http://www.ifood.au.dk.

The starting date is 1 November 2019 or subject to mutual agreement.
