Research Associate x 2 (Fixed Term)

Agriculture Food & Veterinary - UK Jobs

We’re looking for two brilliant researchers to help pioneer the production of novel foods directly from grass as part of the BBSRC funded food system grant: Pasture to Plate. Our vision is to maximise the food potential of UK pasture by using targeted chemical processing and novel biotechnology to convert grass into nutritious edible fractions for healthier and more affordable alternative foods, making UK agriculture more resilient and sustainable. 
Grass is rich in cellulosic fibre, proteins, digestible carbohydrates, starch, lipids, vitamins, carotenoids and minerals. As the lignocellulosic structure cannot be broken down in the stomach, novel chemical processing methods are needed to release these nutrients. However, wet chemical fractionation methods yield crude extracts of only up to 55% purity, involve heating vast volumes of water, require extensive separation and in the case of lipids can involve toxic solvents such as hexane. These stages have been demonstrated to be a major contributor to the cost of a biorefinery process.
Instead, in this project, the grasses will be subjected to a range of mechanochemical-assisted extraction (MAE) steps to extract the nutritious components before the recalcitrant lignocellulosic fraction is depolymerised to feed an oleaginous yeast to produce further nutrients including a palm oil substitute. You will join a dynamic team of scientists, engineers, food technologists and industrialists working across the University of Bath and Harper Adams University alongside 11 other commercial and social enterprise partners. We have two positions available at the University of Bath. We are looking for someone with a relevant PhD in the biological sciences, food sciences or biochemical engineering to lead on the yeast processing, and a candidate with a chemistry or chemical/food engineering background to work on the mechanically assisted extraction of the grass components.
These roles, based at the University of Bath, will be pivotal in developing the chemical and biological processing of the system, optimising for the target functional food groups and scaling the process to the pilot scale. You will be supported by researchers working on the lifecycle and economic assessment, nutritional profiling and developing novel foods from the fractions that are produced.  
Applicants must hold a PhD in the biological sciences, food science, food engineering, analytical chemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, or relevant discipline. Successful applicants will possess:
A strong background and experience in one of these disciplines’ including strong analytical skills
A track record in conducting high quality research, evidenced by publications in peer reviewed journals.
Excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams are essential.
You’ll benefit from working in a dynamic multidisciplinary team based at the Dept. of Chemical Engineering on the main University of Bath campus. The Department is a top 10 department nationally, which specializes in cutting edge sustainable technology development, including the development and optimisation of novel foods through cellular agriculture.
Additional Information
Both roles are full time for an expected duration of 24 months starting November 2022
