We are currently establishing a research group dedicated to the study of biological macromolecules and their behavior under different stressors, as encountered during food processing, and when used in dispersions, emulsions and gels. The research topics encompass dairy proteins and dairy ingredients, starch dispersions, novel process technologies (ultrasound and high hydrostatic pressure), and the development of physical and chemical methodologies to investigate in real-time and in-situ the changes occurring to biological macromolecules. The research group, led by Professor Yacine Hemar, is being established at the Institute of Advanced Studies at Shenzhen University.
We wish to recruit two (2) Research Associates to work in Professor Yacine Hemar Laboratory. Professor Hemar, has been recently appointed as a Distinguished Professor at the Institute of Advanced Study of Shenzhen University. He is also an Honorary Research Fellow at the School of Fundamental Sciences at Massey University, in New Zealand. Professor Hemar holds a PhD (1995) and a Habilitation to Direct Research (2008) from the University of Strasbourg in France. He has worked both in Universities and in the Dairy Industry, and more recently was the Director of the Food Science Programme at the University of Auckland, in New Zealand. He has published in excess of 200 peer-reviewed journal manuscript (with an h-Index of 44), in different areas ranging from theoretical physics to food processing.
