Project AROMAGENESIS aims to train the next generation of researchers in the biochemistry and genetics of flavour production in yeasts used in wine and beer fermentations.
Project AROMAGENESIS aims to train the next generation of researchers in the biochemistry and genetics of flavour production in yeasts used in wine and beer fermentations, to generate new strains of yeasts with improved or more varied flavour profiles and to develop novel approaches to expanding flavour profiles through co-fermentation of different yeast and/or bacterial species.
The network will provide a comprehensive education in yeast genetics, synthetic biology, flavour chemistry and fermentation technology for Early Stage Researchers through individual mentored research training in both academic and industrial institutions, through inter- and intra-sectoral exchanges and secondments and academic workshops.
The successful candidate is expected to perform a research project according to the proposed work packages of AROMAGENESIS with the objective of preparing a PhD dissertation.
AROMAGENESIS brings together a unique multidisciplinary team of 10 research groups, from academia and industry in 7 EU countries, with expertise in yeasts used in the beverage industry and in the analysis of flavour profiles of fermented beverages.
Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.
Mobility Rule: at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the reference date.
Fixed based on EU provisions within the ITN AROMAGENESIS.
