As part of the our exciting new Food & Beverage Innovation project, a Sensory Science Manager is required to be responsible for promoting the field of Sensory Science to small/medium (SME) Food & Drink businesses in the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire area and supporting those businesses with technical advice and development of training materials.
The successful applicant will work closely with Professor Joanne Hort and Richard Worrall who are the project leaders of this ERDF funded project at the Sutton Bonington Campus and with the SME liaison person and project team.
The post will be crucial to introducing this field to a new audience with the key aim to benefit their development and business growth. The challenge is to see how the science can be made relevant to this sector and this person will be expected to contribute fully to building and implementing a plan to do so.
Applicants must have a first degree or masters in Food Science or similar appropriate subject area which includes sensory science, or considerable experience in a sensory laboratory in industry or research institute and must be able to apply that background and knowledge to this SME sector by having a good understanding of their needs.
This full-time post is offered on a fixed-term contract until 31 March 2019.
