Postdoctoral Research Fellow (x2)

Department: Future Foods Beacon of Excellence

Collaborations: Division of Nutritional and Food Sciences, School of Biosciences, School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering

Contract: Full Time (36.5hrs/week) 3 Year Fixed Term Contract

Salary: £30,395- £39,609 per annum, depending on skills and experience (Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance)

The University of Nottingham is inviting applications for two Postdoctoral Fellows to join our Future Foods “Beacon of Excellence”.

As the successful applicant, you will join a team of postdoctoral and postgraduate students addressing three primary objectives:

Objective 1: Investigate the alternative means for generating protein and whether these can be manipulated to improve the quality or efficiency by which protein is produced

Objective 2: Determine interventions that potentially utilise alternative, low-value feed sources to facilitate the sustainable production of such proteins

Objective 3: Development of these alternative protein sources for use in aquaculture, farm animal production and/or as human food ingredients

Post 1: You will work with colleagues across the School of Biosciences (Sutton Bonington Campus) to explore the use of molecular techniques to enhance the quantity and quality of novel sources of protein (e.g. bacteria and insects).  The person appointed will plan and conduct work aimed at manipulating protein production in such organisms and assess their potential use as animal feed/human food.

Post 2: You will work jointly with our colleagues in the School of Biosciences (Sutton Bonington Campus) and School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering (University Park Campus) to further our understanding of the digestibility, bioaccessability and bioavailability of protein from novel sources.  You will plan and conduct work, using both in vitro digestive systems and in vivo models (using broiler chickens), to assess the quality of protein derived from novel protein sources including, underutilised plants, insects, bacteria, fungi and algae.

Both successful candidates will have the opportunity to use their initiative and creativity to identify areas for research, develop research methods and extend their research portfolio.

University of Nottingham, Future Food Beacon of Excellence will be funding these posts (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/beacons-of-excellence/future-food/future-food.aspx).

The Beacon has been set up to enhance our world -leading research expertise in animal, food and plant science and is focussed on addressing the challenge of providing sufficient quantities of nutritious and palatable food to a growing world population within a changing environment.  The Future Protein Platform represents a key component of this work bringing together academics from across disciplines to consider how we will meet the specific challenge of ensuring provision of sufficient high quality protein to future generations. 

These are fixed term 3-year posts, which are available immediately.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Andrew Salter, tel: 0115 9516120 or email Andrew.salter@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
