Eleventh Edition European PhD Flavor Research Awards - Academic year 2020/2021 for final year PhD students
The programme aims to raise the profile of flavor science research in Europe by encouraging students of differing scientific disciplines to engage in innovating flavor-related research PhD projects and thus to advance the exciting and challenging field of flavor science.
PhD Student can be from any scientific background but one aim of the bursaries is to attract people who have not studied Food Chemistry, Food Science or Food Technology to study food flavors
The programme is supported by the consortium of companies for its 11th year comprising
- MCLS Europe
The applicant must be enrolled in a relevant European university/ institute for his/her PhD study.
Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2019 can be considered
The applicant should not be already sponsored by, and/or bound to, a commercial organization
The thesis should clearly explain the starting hypotheses or the goals and aims of the work
Clarity of expression and effective communication of results is a key aspect in assessing the thesis
Appropriate data analysis should be evident
Clear abstracts and summaries are expected
Clear Figures and Tables are expected
What is funded
Flavor research amongst PhD students across European universities and institutes
Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2020 can be considered
All PhD studies should contain a degree of novelty and this will be part of the judging criteria. Novelty may be a new method for studying flavor or new findings or some other aspect of the PhD study
The results should show good experimental design and robust methodology e.g. adequate replication and sampling to support the conclusions
Some theses are composed of published papers, others are more narrative in style. Thus, the judging criteria will take these different styles into consideration and publication of the thesis results will not be an essential criterion for judging
Evidence of enrolment and thesis submission in 2020 at the university/ institute should be provided by the student. The electronic copy of the thesis must be countersigned by the Professor and submitted by December 15, 2020
The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
