The Department is an international workplace with English as primary working language.

The candidate must be able to carry out research and teaching in the field of food biochemistry with a strong emphasis on contributing to developing the use of plants, algae and derived ingredients in foods.

Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen teacher training program for assistant professors is required.

Duties include the applicant’s own research, development of the field, assessment tasks, grant applications, and research management such as supervision and training of research fellows and other staff. The successful applicant must also teach, supervise, prepare and participate in examinations, and fulfill other tasks requested by the Department.

Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, original scientific production at an international level, including contributions to developments in their field, as well as their documented teaching qualifications and personal skills. Managerial and out-reach qualifications of applicants including ability to attract external funding will also be considered.

The successful candidate will be part of an internationally oriented and enthusiastic Section currently consisting of three full professors, 10 associate professors, 13 assistant professors and post docs and more than 15 PhD candidates as well as highly skilled laboratory technicians.
