Fully supported by UoN’s world leading academic experts in flavour, sensory and consumer science, and food physics, you will lead a strategic project to develop a formulation toolbox for the design of ice cream sauces.

As an enthusiastic graduate, this is a career-development opportunity for you to manage a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) which will support Unilever in the delivery of its strategy for nutritional responsibility.

Through the KTP, you will be delivering a high-profile and commercially strategic project that will enable Unilever to gain new capabilities in the key technical areas of sensory science, flavour chemistry and food physics.

An awareness of commercial drivers and previous industrial experience is desirable, but not essential.

A PhD in a relevant subject field (e.g. Sensory Science, Flavour Science/Chemistry, Food Science) is desirable. We are looking for candidate who has knowledge of Flavour Science, Sensory and Consumer Science, as well as basic Food Physics (e.g.Rheology) knowledge.

As a people-orientated individual, you will have the ability to influence and engage collaboratively with Unilever, UoN and other stakeholders. As a proactive person, you will have the passion and desire for creating something new and be enthusiastic and motivated to organise your own time effectively and have a flexible approach to prioritising work tasks.

Throughout the KTP, you will be fully supported and mentored to nurture your talent. You will have your own budget of £2,000 pa for training and CPD, helping you develop your skillset and reach your personal and professional career goals.

UoN is committed to providing competitive employment packages whilst supporting the well-being of its staff to help them reach their full potential. As an employee of UoN, you will have access to the University’s resources and a range of benefits and rewards, including staff discounts, travel schemes and an attractive pension scheme.
