Harper Adams University is seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Food Science and Technology. We are seeking to build the research portfolio within the Department of Food Technology and Innovation and this is an excellent opportunity for someone who aims to establish their own research of national and international standing and impact. We are seeking applicants who compliment that of the current team and hence we are looking for someone with particular research interest in product and ingredient technology, with particular focus/relevance to the dairy food sector.

The successful applicant will also be required to deliver research-led teaching across the suite of undergraduate and postgraduate food technology programmes. This will include responsibility for supervising student research projects and placement projects.

With a Masters/PhD in a relevant subject area, you will also have a track record of publications and funding applications.
