Hoe ziet jouw rol eruit? - What will your job look like?

Job Description and Team Details

Job description

Your internship will be focused on the understanding of product functionality in different recipes and on the development of new applications using our products. On one hand it will include the use of analytical techniques to characterize the behavior of samples produced on pilot and production scale, but there will also be room for developing new, creative concepts.

To apply, you will need knowledge of food technology and food analyses, and a general interest in investigation functionality of food ingredients. Experience in laboratory work and/or analytical techniques is important, but not as essential as your enthusiasm and your positive outlook.
