Associate Professor in Plant Physiology

Arhus University, Denmark


The position
This Associate Professor position will strengthen and complement ongoing research in the effect of climate change on, and protected production of, plant based foods in the Department of Food Science. This position is focused on plant physiological responses and metabolism in protected production environments. The position is aligned to the Science Team called ‘Plant, Food & Climate’ at the Department of Food Science, with access to well-established greenhouse, state of the art climate chambers, multilayer growing facilities, and the relevant photosynthesis, carbon metabolism, chlorophyll, destructive and non-destructive monitoring infrastructure.
The candidate
You are expected to have a strong research profile in plant physiology in relations to protected plant production systems and plant based foods. You are expected to lead and collaborate in cross-disciplinary research projects on physiological aspects of climate change and climate management strategies to improve yield, quality and plan physiological responses of crop plants with focus on plants grown in protected environments that provide new approaches and goals for sustainable production of fruit, vegetables and ornamentals.
An Associate Professor position requires demonstration of independent and novel research initiatives combined with successful postdoc positions including international experience as demonstrated by a significant number of international publications. 
You are expected to have experience in and take responsibility for experimental planning, data handling, publication of scientific papers and communication of scientific outcomes to both research and industry audiences.
Your responsibilities will include significantly strengthening the current research profile of the Science Team. You are expected to take initiatives in interdisciplinary research together with local and international research and industry partners and to secure external funding to establish a successful research program and your own research team.
