The students will be able to spend some time at the Nestlé Research Center, Lausanne, Switzerland, to get some experience of the Food Industry, and possibly also at a collaborating University in The Netherlands, The University of Wageningen.
It is a requirement that overseas students have achieved a minimum level of English language proficiency (an IELTS score of 6.0, a paper-based TOEFL score of 550, or a computer-based TOEFL score of 220).
You will be highly motivated and keen to work in a laboratory environment, with a strong interest in diet and health, and with a suitable qualification (a pass in a BSc Honours degree with a minimum classification at 2(i)) in food science, biochemistry, molecular biology or a related subject.
