Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture Endowed Chair
Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture Endowed Chair in Bioprocess Engineering
The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, College of Engineering, at the University of Saskatchewan is pleased to invite applications for a Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture Endowed Chair in Bioprocess Engineering.
The Saskatchewan agri-food processing industry is expanding and continued growth requires focused research to develop new technologies and products that meet processor requirements and consumer demand. Targeted research and development in bioprocess engineering will help create new bio-products (food, feed and industrial) and processes that increase the application, use and value of Saskatchewan commodities and ingredients.
Applications are invited from qualified individuals for a tenure-track faculty member at the Associate Professor or Assistant Professor level, with the primary appointment (75%) in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in the College of Engineering and the secondary appointment (25%) in the Department of Food and Bioproduct Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources.
The primary goal of the Bioprocess Engineering Chair is to maximize returns to Saskatchewan’s agri-food and bioproducts industries by increasing the total value derived from crop production, with a focus on generating new, commercially viable products from grains and under-utilized residual biomaterials.
