    Master's or Ph.D. Opportunity in Food Science - Development of Low Sodium Bread Products

    Posted October 23, 2013

    The Project:
    Two graduate students (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) are being sought to work on a large industry-focused research project focused on reducing the overall sodium content in breads. Specifically, the project trakes a fundamental look at the role sodium plays in dough rheology, structure and stickiness, and water mobility within the dough matrix under a low salt environment.

    Qualifications:
    Applicants must be highly motivated to pursue a research career. Candidates should have a strong background in chemistry, biochemistry, food science or other natural sciences. Furthermore, interested individuals must hold a B.Sc. or M.Sc. degree from one of the aforementioned disciplines. The ability to work independently is necessary and excellent oral and written communication skills are required.

    Starting Date: The project is to commence once a suitable candidate is found.
