Description

Professor of Artificial Intelligence in Food

Do you have an excellent research track record with the vision and drive to tackle new challenges? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience?

The School of Food Science and Nutrition is seeking to appoint a Professor of Artificial Intelligence in Food to deliver world-class research and inspirational teaching and supervision in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning in relation to food. The application of machine learning to big data could help to advance nutritional epidemiology and thus have an impact on health. Diet is complex due to the thousands of different foods that are consumed in varying proportions, fluctuating quantities over time, and differing combinations. Current dietary pattern methods may not integrate sufficient dietary variation, and most traditional modelling approaches have limited incorporation of interactions and nonlinearity. Machine learning could help better model diet as a complex exposure with non-additive and nonlinear associations.

You will seek opportunities to establish new collaborative research programmes aligned with the objectives of the School and Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, which aims to address global challenges in Food, Climate and Health, and has received significant investment from the University to develop multi-disciplinary research and teaching.

You will enhance the School's student education activities to consolidate the School's position as one of the global leaders in Food Science and Nutrition education, engaging with students at all levels to integrate research into teaching.

With a strong international reputation and demonstrated academic leadership, you will positively contribute to shaping the research strategy of the School. You will enhance the reputation of the University, having a sustained record of outstanding outputs and demonstrable high-level impact. In so doing, you will make a significant and influential contribution to the achievement of the University's strategic goals.

You will have a PhD in a relevant discipline, with experience of leading research programmes that meet international standards of academic excellence, and integrating this research into learning and teaching. You will also have a track record of sustained delivery of ambitious and imaginative academic leadership, including effective team working and collaborative development. In addition, you will have experience of leading research initiatives and developing links with research groups in the UK and internationally.
