The lucky applicant will be known as a Doctor of Chocolate.

It may sound light-hearted but it has a serious purpose. The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University want a PhD student to carry out a study to find a way to prevent chocolate from melting in hot climates. The researcher will study the ‘fundamentals of heat-stable chocolate’.

It is a mainly experimental role but the successful applicant will have to have good mathematics skills.

The advertisement says that the researcher will: “investigate the factors which allow chocolate, which has a melting point close to that of the human body, to remain solid and retain qualities sought by consumers when it is stored and sold in warm climates.”

The job is likely to appeal to many people across the UK and Ireland and candidates will need to apply for the role by 29th August.
