The Centre for Research, Innovation and Transfer of Food Technologies at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) has two open positions for post-doctoral researchers, the Beautriu de Pinós Fellowships.
The area of the project to work at is Biological Sciences and Production technologies, more specifically:
Bioactive emulsifiers functionalized by ultra-high pressure homogenisation (UHPH) for microencapsulation of vegetable oils. Application to dairy-based products.
This project aims to investigate the concentrated emulsions obtained by UHPH technology, using ingredients from the buttermilk with variable composition of MFGM components (proteins / phospholipids), together with vegetable oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Thus, improved protection systems (against oxidation) and release of bioactive components are expected to be available over conventional homogenization.
Key words: UHPH, buttermilk, MFGM ingredients, vegetal oils, omega-3, lipid oxidation, biodisponibility.

Deadline is 25 March 2019, at 17:00 (CET).
