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 position is available from 1. August, 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The position
We are specifically interested in individuals who can apply their expertise to both plant- and animal-based food products within food packaging. It is expected that the successful candidates will have documented experience on the interaction of food in relation to packaging and how to implement novel sustainable solutions to optimize food quality and deliver food in innovative ways to meet consumer trends whilst minimising food waste.
Knowledge on the influence of modified atmosphere, light and temperature exposure, use of edible films, biodegradable materials, surface materials, smart packaging systems, sensors, but also food quality parameters including sensory, microbiology, oxidation and other molecular changes as affected by packaging is important, within the context of healthy and convenient food solutions.

New research initiatives in food packaging should complement existing Department activities in food quality, food components, ingredients, shelf life, postharvest research, differentiated and biofunctional foods, with a specific focus on delivering new, healthy and convenient foods.

We are looking to appoint an experienced research leader who has significant expertise in food packaging to deliver natural, healthy and convenience-based foods to meet changing lifestyle needs for consumers. We seek competitive individuals who want to create successful, interdisciplinary teams together with external research collaborators and industrial partners to deliver both novel and innovative solutions and underpinning basic knowledge to the area.

Successful candidates are expected to:

  • be responsible for the development of the research area and implementation of basic and applied research
  • establish synergies between your own research and other related research activities to secure the needed interdisciplinary approaches
  • maintain a strong national and international network of contacts with leading research groups, as well as pursuing industrial contacts within the food industry
  • support the development of comprehensive research-based teaching activities and participate in assessments of students at Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD levels
  • be responsible for effective knowledge exchange with society, industry and the Danish Government
  • successfully attract external research grants from industry, national and international sources
  • develop and contribute to relevant educational courses at the Bachelor’s and Master’s level
  • participate in MSc, PhD and post-doctoral training and be responsible for the educational guidance of assistant professors/postdocs.
