MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. — Kansas State University’s Department of Grain Science and Industry announced in July that it is seeking applications for a non-tenure track, annually renewable position at the instructor level in the area of milling science and management.

The position, funded by the North American Millers’ Association (NAMA), will require teaching undergraduate courses and laboratory sections in milling/grain processing, equipment selection and maintenance, process operations management, and related safety and regulatory issues in the Milling Science and Management program.

According to the department, the instructor will also support related programmatic efforts such as student advising, student recruitment, internships and job placement, curriculum development, and service on departmental committees.

“We are grateful for the investment the milling industry is making in the education and training of the next generation of millers,” said Dirk Maier, head of the Department of Grain Science and industry. “Establishing the NAMA Instructor of Milling at K-State is an outstanding example of a successful private-public partnership that will provide the necessary funding to keep our globally unique milling program sustainable during a time when higher education budgets are being cut across the country while demand for our students is growing.

“This position provides an excellent opportunity for a mid-career milling industry professional to join our faculty team and have a real impact on the next generation of millers.”
