A PhD student position is vacant at Food and Nutrition Science, Biology and Biological Engineering divisions at Chalmers University of Technology.

About the project:
  • The overall project aim is to explore small pelagic fish species (herring, sprat) as food protein sources.
  • Focus will be on studying different techniques for recovery of mince or protein ingredients from the whole or gutted fish, for example pH-driven solubilization and isoelectric precipitation. Important parts will then be evaluation of nutritional and technofunctional properties of the ingredients as well as new strategies for formulation and stabilization against oxidation.
  • It is expected that the PhD-project will deliver new types of marine protein ingredients to meet the ongoing protein shift.
  • Full-time temporary employment.
  • The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications:

  • Applicant must hold a Master’s level degree in BioScience, Food Science, Biochemical Engineering, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or similar
  • Applicant must be fluent in English in writing and speaking and strong communication and analytical skills.
  • Experience from work with (marine) proteins, protein isolation, nutrient analyses and protein functionality would be advantageous.
  • Applicant must have completed courses on M.Sc level within Food Science, Analytical chemistry, Biotechnology, Food structure and function, Food Physics, Polymer Science, Food technology, Rheology and Process technology.

Application:

Apply online and the application should be marked with Ref 20210104 and written in English. The application should be sent electronically and be attached as pdf-files, as below:

  • CV, previous employments or leadership qualifications and positions of trust, two references that we can contact.
  • Personal letter (1-3 pages): Introduction, describe previous experience of relevance for the position (e.g. education, thesis work and, if applicable, any other research activities), describe future goals and future research focus
  • Copies of bachelor and/or master’s thesis.
  • Attested copies and transcripts of completed education, grades and other certificates, e.g. TOEFL test results.
