BIBAFOODS

Two PhD positions are available in the NANO group (starting date 01/07 and 01/09/2014).
The main topic of both positions is the encapsulation of food ingredients (probiotic bacteria or enzyme) in compartmentalised and functional silica materials.


BIOPOLYMER BASED FOOD DELIVERY SYSTEMS (BIBAFOODS) is an Initial Training Network funded by the Marie Curie Actions under FP7 of the European Union. The network will educate young researchers in how to develop novel functional foods by use of colloidal delivery systems. The employed researchers will develop materials and coatings that respond to external chemical conditions in order to facilitate controlled releases targeted at a desired stage, either during food processing or at a specific point during digestion of the food. More specifically, BIBAFOODS will concentrate on probiotic bacteria and enzymes that are liberated and allowed to be active in a controllable way during gastrointestinal transit. The network will be active at least until 31 January 2018.


During 2014 BIBAFOODS will hire 11 early stage (PhD students) and 3 experienced researchers (Post Docs). The employed researchers must take part in the network activities and should be prepared to collaborate across sector and geographical boundaries, and be willing to take up short-term secondments to institutions/companies within the network. In order to be able to apply for a position in BIBAFOODS, you must fulfill the mobility requirements : you must not have resided or carried out your main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment. There are no restrictions on the nationality of the researcher as long as the mobility requirements are fulfilled. See further details below.


There are 11 partners in BIBAFOODS, including universities, a public sector research organization, and private companies : University of Copenhagen (Denmark), Chr. Hansen A/S (Denmark), Lund University (Sweden), CR Competence AB (Sweden), Heidelberg University (Germany), ProDigest (Belgium), Ghent University (Belgium), University of Lorraine (France), University of Alcalá (Spain), The Spanish National Research Council (Spain), and University of Coimbra (Portugal). In addition, 3 associated partners take part in the network : Aventure AB (Sweden), ThermoScientific (Spain) and University of Barcelona (Spain). The project coordinator is Associate Professor Jens Risbo, University of Copenhagen.


Formal requirements regarding mobility and eligibility
Please make sure that you check the eligibility and mobility criteria of the Marie Curie Research Training Networks before you apply to ensure that you are eligible. See details in the calls for each position.
• The recruited researcher may have any nationality in the world as long as the rule of mobility is met.
• At the time of selection by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the host country for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
• Specific for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs, PhD positions) : At the time of recruitment, it is a requirement that PhD candidates have not been awarded a doctorate degree and are in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers.
• Specific for Experienced Researchers (ERs, post doc positions) : At the time of recruitment, it is a requirement that post-doc candidates are in the first 5 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and already in possession of a doctorate (PhD) degree.
