Description

WE TRANSFORM LIVES. Everything we do is designed to improve the quality of life of the people in the state of Illinois, across the nation, and around the world. We discover, develop, translate, and disseminate knowledge to address societal concerns and train the next generation of experts and leaders in a way that empowers them to expand the boundaries of science to higher levels of understanding and influence.

The Department of Crop Sciences is where horticulture, plant genetics, biotechnology, business, data science, crop production, and sustainability join together through results-oriented faculty and students.

The Department of Crop Sciences and the College of Consumer, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (ACES) offer world-class laboratory, greenhouse, and field research facilities. In addition, the ACES is home to the Division of Nutritional Sciences (https://nutrsci.illinois.edu), the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition (https://fshn.illinois.edu), and a key partner in the Center for Digital Agriculture (https://digitalag.illinois.edu/). The Department of Crop Sciences also houses the Student Sustainable Farm (https://ssf.cropsciences.illinois.edu) a facility on campus that grows and provides 40 different fruits and vegetables to University of Illinois’ dining commons. This facility is run by graduate 01/and undergraduate students and has worked with faculty to conduct applied horticulture research. The successful candidate will join a collaborative and supportive community of world-class life and computer sciences as well as engineering programs at the University of Illinois where our internationally-recognized faculty partner with the private sector to enhance education and training opportunities on a diversity of crops.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is located in the heart of the Midwest. The twin cities, which “sandwich” the University campus, are welcoming, diverse, vibrant. They are surrounded by one of the most productive agricultural ecosystems worldwide. The campus is not only a recognized Agricultural Tech Hub but Champaign and Urbana are well known for their gastronomy and culture, with the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts attracting artists from around the world. The University is conveniently located in proximity to affordable and beautiful neighborhoods with high-quality schools.

We invite outstanding scientists to apply for this position. The position is very broadly defined in terms of potential research themes and teaching responsibilities. Potential research themes include but are not limited to: horticulture and its role in human health and dietary nutritional quality; maintenance of post-harvest quality; urban agriculture and controlled environmental production systems; stress physiology;  and crop adaptation in response to climate change. We are seeking candidates with a proven ability to use innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to conduct high-impact research. The successful candidate will have demonstrated interest and experience in student education and training and will teach courses in horticulture important to our undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

We seek candidates who will strengthen our efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusivity initiatives and who will contribute to programs that seek to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups in agricultural research and STEAM. Individuals with diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
