2021年丹麦奥尔胡斯大学招聘博士后职位(食品微生物学与技术)

丹麦奥尔胡斯大学2021年招聘博士后职位(食品微生物学与技术)

Post doctoral position – Food microbiology and technology

Aarhus University, Faculty of Technology, Department of Food Science, offers a 2-year and 5-month position at the post doctoral level within the area of food microbiology, food technology, and processing. Start date August 15th, 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Area of work

The position is funded through a project within the field of food microbiology and dairy technology. The project aims to obtain new knowledge on heat processing and formulation of ambient acid dairy products in order to control acid-resistant sporeformers that may compromise quality and shelf-life. The work involves establishing a culture collection of acid resistant sporeformers relevant for dairy products. Heat inactivation experiments are performed at different temperatures in order to establish D-values as a function of pH and z-values for each species within the culture collection. The candidate will work around mapping hurdle combinations of acids, pH gradients and heating regimes that can inhibit spore growth for different types of dairy products. The candidate must work to deliver heating and formulation guidelines for acid dairy products that will ensure their stability at normal and elevated ambient storage temperatures. Stability is expected to be based on the inactivation or growth inhibition of relevant species of acid resistant sporeformers for different categories of high acid dairy products with pH=4.6. Therefore, we seek a candidate with strong analytical background within food microbiology techniques, and with a good understanding of dairy technology and quality.

The Post doc position is part of the Science Team ‘Food Chemistry and Technology’ at the Department of Food Science. The candidate is expected to take part in teaching at BSc and MSc level, as well as participating in supervision of students. It is expected that the post doc candidate participates in attracting funding for further research in the area. Furthermore, the project is in collaboration with the dairy industry, thus teamwork and networking skills are important.

Qualifications

A PhD degree (or equivalent experience) in food science, food microbiology or similar

Documented expertise in studying bacterial sporeformers, their growth, sporulation, heat-resistance, hurdles and microbial characterization.

Preferably experience in dairy science and dairy processing.

A good understanding of a broad variety of analytical methods within food microbiology.

Documentation of good skills in communication of research results internationally as evidenced by a high quality publication record within food microbiology and/or food technology

Experience in supervising students and teaching at a high academic level

We offer a challenging and independent job opportunity in an ambitious and inspiring research and education environment with an informal atmosphere. We are looking for a dynamic employee, who is able to work independently and maintain an overview during periods of high workload. We expect that you are efficient at planning your time and organizing major tasks. You enjoy interaction with both scientific staff, students and technical-administrative staff and you have a flair for establishing collaborative relationships.

Academic contact person: Marianne Hammershøj, Associate Professor, +45 22 16 92 59 (mobile).

Application procedure

Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants.

Letter of reference

If you want a referee to upload a letter of reference on your behalf, please state the referee’s contact information when you submit your application. We strongly recommend that you make an agreement with the person in question before you enter the referee’s contact information, and that you ensure that the referee has enough time to write the letter of reference before the application deadline.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration.

Formalities and salary range

Technical Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.

Aarhus University offers a broad variety of services for international researchers and accompanying families, including relocation service and career counselling to expat partners. Read more here. Please find more information about entering and working in Denmark here.

Aarhus University also offers a Junior Researcher Development Programme targeted at career development for postdocs at AU. You can read more about it here.

The application must be submitted via Aarhus University’s recruitment system, which can be accessed under the job advertisement on Aarhus University’s website.
