As the longest-running agriculturally-based university in the Southern Hemisphere, Lincoln University’s story begins with farming, but it certainly doesn’t end there. As New Zealand’s economy diversified, so have we. Lincoln University is here to enhance and enrich lives. To grow the knowledge of our students so they can shape a world that benefits from a greater understanding of the relationship between our land, the food produced from it and the ecosystems within it. With three academic faculties, one teaching division, several research centres and a range of corporate service units, the University draws its students from throughout New Zealand and from over 60 countries. Lincoln University has a student roll of around 3,000 and approximately 700 staff.

Specifically, the successful candidate will collaborate with other staff within the department of Wine, Food and Molecular Biosciences on research aims including intrinsic and extrinsic properties of foods, consumers motivations and emotional responses; eye-tracking on packaging and virtual/augmented reality on sensory perception. The successful candidate will also be expected to collaborate with other partners, both at Lincoln University and other organisations, and contribute to other research aims, as appropriate.
