Dried Fruit Washer Job Description Sample
Endowed Chair In Tree Fruit Postharvest Systems
Summary of Duties The Endowed Chair is expected to provide energetic research leadership to address significant challenges to the tree fruit supply chain whose solutions can be derived from an integrated understanding of issues from bloom to table and are best addressed with a team
-oriented, systems approach. Multi- and transdisciplinary collaborations are expected both within and beyond WSU. In complement, the Chair is expected to develop a world-class research program in a selected area of the tree fruit supply chain. Such research may include, but is not limited to, investigations of pre- and postharvest cultural practices and biotic/abiotic stresses and their interactions on postharvest fruit quality; metabolomic, proteomic and molecular mechanisms underlying postharvest physiology; inheritance and expression of fruit traits; fruit sensory attributes and value-added products; postharvest handling technologies and supply chain logistics. A systems approach to the tree fruit supply chain and validation of new research findings will inform technology transfer to, and successful adoption by, growers, packers and shippers. Active participation in formal dissemination of research results to the tree fruit industry, undergraduate and graduate students via guest lectures, individual and team teaching activities and graduate student advising is expected. This Endowed Chair research program complements recent and planned tree fruit-focused research faculty and extension professional hires, as well as WSU initiatives — such as the WSU Tree Fruit Decision Aid System, the WSU Agricultural Weather Network, the Center for Precision & Automated Agricultural Systems (CPAAS), and the Tree Fruit Extension Team. The successful candidate will emphasize collaborative programs with state, federal, and private research and extension personnel to strengthen efforts among multi- and transdisciplinary teams. The successful candidate will acquire competitive extramural funding to support a comprehensive research program, contribute extensively to the scholarly literature, and enhance the national and international scope and reputation of WSU tree fruit programs. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct a program of research consistent with the mission of the WSU in general and the strategic goals of CAHNRS, and work effectively with other researchers, extension professionals, private crop consultants, and with industry stakeholders. The successful candidate will participate in regional meetings, promote tree fruit postharvest systems research, and provide content to popular/grower media. Teaching responsibilities include the mentoring and supervision of graduate students, guest lectures and individual and team teaching contributions in the area of postharvest systems.
Additional Information KEY PARTNERSHIPS:
Washington State University strives to be the world leader in tree fruit research, outreach and education. CAHNRS is a top 10 agriculture college in the land grant university system. Today, WSU’s tree fruit effort includes more than 30 faculty members who dedicate the majority of their time and effort to tree fruit research and extension. These faculty span eight academic disciplines – horticulture, biosystems engineering, entomology, plant pathology, soil science, food science, agricultural economics, and agrometeorology – and are located on the main Pullman campus, at four Research and Extension Centers, and in regional extension units. This effort is greatly augmented by the activities of USDA-ARS scientists in the Wenatchee Tree Fruit Research Laboratory and the Wapato Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research Laboratory, as well as Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission staff located in Wenatchee and Yakima. Three research and demonstration orchards include over 200 acres devoted to tree fruit for short- to long-term studies. Significant postharvest facilities and equipment are available at both Prosser and Wenatchee Centers as well as willing collaborators in the tree fruit industry. The Tree Fruit Endowment also includes two separate funding sources to enhance tree fruit extension research orchards and facilities. In addition, the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission uses grower assessments to fund research efforts with WSU, other universities and the USDA on all aspects of tree fruit production and handling. Approximately $1.5 million is awarded annually to WSU and USDA personnel. This 12-month, tenured or tenure-track full-time faculty position begins August 16, 2017, or as negotiated, at the Wenatchee or Prosser Research and Extension Centers, Washington. # Position Qualifications

About Us: After moving to New York from his native Turkey, Chobani’s founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya found that in America, yogurt just wasn’t as delicious and widely available as it was back home.

From that first revived yogurt factory in New Berlin, New York, to a gleaming state-of-the-art facility in Twin Falls, Idaho, to an international foothold in Dandenong, Australia and beyond – in the few short years since its debut, Chobani has climbed to the top of the yogurt category and turned Greek yogurt into a household staple. With a growing team of thousands, Chobani strives to stay true to and honor Hamdi’s vision and goals for our company: To develop and foster meaningful relationships with those around us, to give back to our local and global communities, and to create one perfect cup of yogurt at a time.
