Aarhus University Course Type: PhD Start Date: February, May, August, November
Location: Århus, Denmark Duration: Full time - 4 Years Fees/total cost: To be announced


The PhD Programme in Food Science is provided by Graduate School of Science and Technology at Aarhus University.

The research provides new knowledge concerning the sustainable production and quality of ornamentals, fruits, vegetables and food of animal origin.

The focus is on generating knowledge on food quality and quality of ornamentals through a basic understanding of the physiological, biochemical, chemical and physical processes during the production, and how these processes can be controlled by process technology parameters and production parameters e.g. genetics, food supply/feeding, cultivation systems and other production conditions.

The plant oriented research includes cultivation techniques, physiology, crop quality, post harvest performance and product development. The animal oriented research includes production parameters for meat, eggs and milk e.g. feeding strategies, genetics and animal well-fare, but also the use of in vitro cell models - both muscle and liver cells.

The department is organized in 5 science teams:

· Differentiated & Biofunctional Food

· Food Chemistry & Technology

· Food, Metabolomics & Sensory Science

· Plant, Food & Sustainability

· Plant, Food & Climate
