Job Description:





This 12-month, tenure-accruing faculty appointment is a 50% research (Florida Agricultural Experiment Station) and 50% teaching (College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) assignment within the Food Science and Human Nutrition Department (FSHN) at the University of Florida based on campus in Gainesville, Florida.

The teaching assignments will include core courses in food processing and engineering with options to develop additional offerings consistent with the mission of the department.

Teaching will involve advising and supervising undergraduate and graduate students in courses and research, while supporting student professional development activities.

The candidate is expected to maintain an active research program based on ability to attract competitive extramural funds at the national level.

Prior grant writing and funding experience is preferred.

Commercial collaborations addressing both domestic and international concerns are expected where appropriate.

Research areas can range through all basic principles and practices used in food processing including heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, packaging, refrigeration/freezing, biotechnology concepts, and sustainable processes (waste and energy recovery).

Collaboration is available and expected across other departments and institutions with related food and engineering expertise.

The teaching and research efforts are anticipated to complement some of the existing strengths in the FSHN Department, e.g., seafood, beverage, and fruits and vegetable processing, but are not restricted from ventures into other fundable interests consistent with the Land Grant and Sea Grant missions of the University.
