Product Scientist, Low Calorie Chocolate - KTP Associate (Fixed-term)
This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to advance their career through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP). You will be working with Unilever UK and the School of Biosciences to develop techniques for lowering calories in chocolate.
Chocolate and chocolate coatings play a significant role in many of Unilever’s ice cream products and the removal of fat and sugar creates significant challenges. Reduction of these functional ingredients leads not only to changes in product texture, processability and quality, but also to taste & flavour which is a key driver for consumer acceptance. A step change in understanding is now needed and will be delivered through the project using both internal technologies (Unilever and University of Nottingham) and concepts generated through the project.
As a minimum you should hold a good first degree in a food related subject. A relevant MSc and/or PhD is desirable.
You will be employed by the University of Nottingham but will be based primarily at Unilever, Colworth, Bedfordshire.
This full-time post will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 31 December 2021.
