The Institute of Food Research is pleased to offer a new one-year research post in food authenticity. The post holder will investigate the differentiation between meats from different animals, for example beef versus horse meat, using the Institute’s existing mass spectrometry resources. Tasks will include sample preparation using standard chemistry techniques, mass spectrometry data acquisition and analysis, and use of complementary analytical methods as required. The objective is to develop protocols as part of the Institute’s Food Safety Centre service, and as such will be industry-facing to some extent.
We seek a graduate chemist, biochemist or equivalent who is interested in developing their analytical skills and who is keen to join an active and friendly team working on ways to secure the integrity of Britain’s food supply.
This post is for a contract of 12 months in the first instance.
