Professor of Translational Agritechnology (Elizabeth Creek Chair) - G865
 

Closing date:  13 October 2018

Founded in 2017 from the merger of agricultural, biological, chemical, marine and geosciences, the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (SNES) is a centre of multidisciplinary research and training at Newcastle University.  As part of its forward plans and in alignment with the University and Faculty strategy, the School have identified a number of key appointments in agriculture, chemistry and soil science to develop a research and training environment that integrates our science base and delivers transformative solutions to society.  

 

New appointments will join a large and busy school of 120 academic staff, operating on its city campus and farm and marine stations, with access to the range of teaching and research facilities of a large Russel Group University. Committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity, we welcome applications from a diverse range of backgrounds

 

The School of Natural and Environmental Sciences (SNES) is seeking to appoint a Professor of Practice in agritechnology focussed on translating the latest innovations in engineering and science into practical solutions that improve the profitability of crop, or livestock production. This position, which is supported by a generous endowment from the Elizabeth Creak Trust, builds on recent significant investments in Newcastle University’s research farms, state-of-the-art agitechnology facilities and appointments of leading agricultural and life science researchers.

 

The school is committed to extending its diversity in academic base and applications from agritechnology practitioners in the private sectors are particularly welcome. This is an outward facing role that would form part of the wider Elizabeth Creak Network of leading agricultural researchers in the UK and connects SNES research to farmers, communities and associated industries across the UK.
