Assistant professor in Food Science/Culinary Science
Montana State University-Bozeman is currently doing a search for a new faculty position, Assistant Professor, Food Science/Culinary Science. The person hired for this position will be part of a team of faculty launching a brand new Bachelor’s degree program in Hospitality Management at Montana State University. One of the options within the new Hospitality Management program is a Food Enterprise option. The successful candidate for the Assistant Professor, Food Science/Culinary Science will be most closely aligned with this option in terms of teaching, research and service. The Food Enterprise option focuses on adding value to Montana agricultural products, product development, processing considerations and connecting Montana’s large agricultural sector to a wide variety of end markets. We are looking for a candidate who wants to be part of developing this successful program from the ground up.
A postdoctoral investigator position is available to participate in a NIH/NIEHS‐funded project within the University of Kentucky Superfund Research Center (UK‐SRC). Research in Dr. Hennig’s laboratory focuses on the paradigm that nutrition can modulate environmental insults (exposure to environmental pollutants). Our research utilizes a combination of cell culture and mouse models to explore molecular biology approaches to understand the regulatory interplay of healthful nutrition and inflammatory diseases linked to exposure to persistent organic pollutants. The postdoctoral scholar will be involved in research to explore molecular signaling pathways related to nutrition and toxicology with a focus on endothelial cell function and vascular biology or inflammatory diseases, keeping in mind possible multi‐ organ involvement in the etiology of cardiovascular diseases. The postdoctoral scholar also is encouraged to participate in mentoring graduate students.
The University of Kentucky has a top‐rated postdoctoral program that supports a dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance programs. Then UK‐SRC is highly interdisciplinary, allowing trainees not only to advance in basic research, but also to provide opportunities to participate in educational and outreach activities associated with the project.
Educational Qualifications: PhD in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Developmental Biology, Pharmacology or Toxicology is preferred. Molecular biology experience is essential, and previous experience with rodents (mice) is required.
Applicants should submit 1) a cover letter describing their research interests and career goals, 2) CV and 3) relevant publications and 4) contact information of three references.
Review of applications will commence immediately and continue as applications are received until the position is filled. Salary is commensurate with experience.
