The successful candidate will be expected to work with faculty in the Food Industry Management Program and Systems Engineering to maintain a highly impactful program of research relevant to the food industry. The candidate is expected to publish in high-impact peer reviewed journals in applied economics, engineering and management, and to communicate results to practitioners as well as academic peers.
OPPORTUNITIES: The Food Industry Management Program (FIMP) is widely recognized as the premier food industry education and research program in the United States. An active research program is an integral part of FIMP—a leading source of academic research on the retail and manufacturing sectors of the food industry. The goal of FIMP's research program is to improve food system efficiency and performance by providing timely and useful information to managers. FIMP is part of the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University.
