Position Description & Details:

This is a 12-month tenure track position located in the Department of Plant Sciences at North Dakota State University (NDSU) with 90% research and 10% teaching responsibilities.  The position will be filled at the assistant professor level.  The individual will conduct basic and applied research on the biochemical components and physical properties of barley as they relate to the quality of end-products for cultivar development and human health and on the bioprocessing of fermented foods.


The successful candidate is expected to provide leadership in the research and outreach activities with industry stakeholders, producers, customers, and commodity groups as it relates to barley quality, the impact of mycotoxins on the end-use quality of cereals, and food fermentation. Research on food fermentation should focus on fermented food that utilizes crops grown in ND. It is expected that research conducted will lead to published research in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at national/international scientific meetings. This position involves working with the NDSU barley breeding program to screen experimental and released lines for end-use quality and to cooperate in developing research that results from this screening. A component of this program is to screen barley and wheat samples submitted by scientists funded by the US Wheat and Barley Scab Initiative for mycotoxins. Service activities associated with this position include projects with barley commodity groups.  The incumbent will teach CFS 761 (Malting and Brewing; 3 credits, alternate years), several lectures of CFS 450/650 (Cereal Technology, annually), and a cereal/food science course to be determined (3 credits, alternate years). The successful candidate is expected to advise graduate students, train graduate students in collaboration with other faculty members, participate in department, college, and university governance, and aggressively seek both competitive and noncompetitive extramural funding to support their research program.
