Vacancy 14-74

The Faculty of Agribusiness and Commerce is seeking to fill an agribusiness vacancy in the international rural development programme. International rural development at Lincoln University is offered as an interdisciplinary postgraduate programme, the Master of International Rural Development (MIRD), that draws on staff across Faculties. Agribusiness is one of the majors in this programme.  The MIRD draws students from a wide range of countries, particularly the Asia-Pacific region, and the University has a well-established reputation with international agencies.

The successful candidate will help to build the reputation of the programme’s agribusiness specialisation, produce high quality research outputs, and lead or contribute to consultancy and research contracts funded by development agencies.  Candidates for this position will have a strong record of research and of teaching and supervising postgraduate students studying agribusiness value chains in the context of developing or transition economies. They will have experience supervising students whose first language is not English and of working in multi- and inter-disciplinary teams. A track record of research and consultancy work conducted within developing countries will be a major advantage.

The successful candidate will be part of a team in the Faculty of Agribusiness and Commerce that supports Lincoln University’s strategic focus on ‘feeding the world, protecting the future and living well’, and that aspires to become the leading provider of agribusiness education and research in Australasia.
