OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Marie Skłodowska Curie Innovative Training Network “HiStabJuice” is inviting applications for a 36 month full time fixed term position as an Early Stage Researcher. This research project is a collaboration between 17 organisations, including 7 academic and 10 non-academic, from 7 countries (AT, DE, FR, IT, NL, PT, SL) across Europe. The research aims to analyse and compare in a normalised fashion the impacts of various available processing technologies on the stability of colour and nutrients in various fruit juices.

The successful applicant will be employed by Catelli Food Technology in Italy, with planned intersectoral and interdisciplinary stays with collaboration partners totalling a maximum of 11 months. PhD will be awarded by University of Parma upon successful dissertation defense.

The research and PhD thesis will be on “Influence of thermal and non-thermal treatments on endogenous enzymes inactivation and microorganisms reduction in selected fruit juices and nectars”.

The ESR will:

  • compare conventional and non-conventional stabilization methods using juice and nectars obtained from the raw materials
  • preserve fruit juices and nectars by ohmic heating
  • evaluate the effects of matrix (pH level, sugar and nutrient content) impact on enzymes and microorganisms kinetics
  • optimize heat transfer equipment for the thermal processing of liquid foods
  • optimize ohmic heating treatment and benchmarking between ohmic and indirect technologies

Beyond the specific expertise gained during the ESR’s completion of their research work, this position offers an opportunity to gain international research experience, as well as an array of soft skills relevant to project management, research management and career development.
