We invite a senior plant science academic to join our internationally-recognised Postharvest Biology and Technology Group.

About the Role

You will lead a programme of internationally competitive research and consultancy in aspects of postharvest research, for example addressing research gaps in fundamental and applied areas related to dormancy, shelf-life, nutrition, or other topics important for the “Food Loss and Waste” and “Nutritional Security” agendas. A major part of the role will be to win research funding, manage projects and supervise postgraduate research students. You will collaborate with our existing postharvest academic staff, and seek synergy with our teams of plant scientists, soil scientists and bioinformaticians. You will contribute to the design, planning and delivery of postgraduate teaching. 

About You

You will have a PhD and a track-record high-impact publications in the plant sciences, including postharvest-related work, commensurate with career stage. You will have evidence of pro-active preparation of research bids and of winning research funding from a range of sources to build your research team. You will have experience in managing a group of academic and/or research staff and an appetite for postgraduate teaching and supervision.
