Biochemistry of meat quality

Objective

The Meat Technology Department of The National Food Centre is a designated Marie Curie Training Site. The National Food Centre is part of Teagasc, The Agriculture and Food Development Authority of Ireland. Its mission is to support the development of the food industry through excellence and leadership in research, technical development and training. The research programme is carried out in collaboration with academic institutions, research organizations and companies in the EU and USA. The Meat Technology Department now wishes to appoint Marie Curie Fellows for duration of 6-12 months for advanced training in meat biochemistry. Applicants should be engaged in doctoral studies in the measurement of meat quality in an approved institution in an EU member state (not Ireland) or an associated state. Research carried out in The National Food Centre will form an integral part of the doctoral work. Fellows will take part in a high caliber research programme and have the opportunity to work with scientists internationally recognized in the field of meat science. Fellows will have access to state-of-the art laboratories and equipment and a pilot scale abattoir and processing hall in carrying out the research work. The Meat Technology Department has a proven track record securing national and international funding for its research and is widely published in the area of meat science. Fellows will have the opportunity to develop English language skills as all research work; presentations and reporting will be carried out in English. The National Food Centre is an equal opportunities employer and applications from women are particularly welcomed.
