The school has five professorially led research groups. The major research interests are: brewing science; flavour science; food microbiology and safety; food structure; and the BBSRC National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics. The Division of Food Sciences carries out research in: flavour release from foods; lipid oxidation; the application of a materials science approach to the processing (particularly extrusion) and storage stability of low-water content foods; food rheology and its application to hydrocolloid gels; characterisation of macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies using hydrodynamic techniques; molecular enzymology; food microbiology and molecular genetics studies of food-borne bacterial and viral pathogens; brewing yeast genetics and fermentation performance; malting science.

Entry requirements

2.2 (or international equivalent) in a relevant subject. Applicants holding other qualifications may also be accepted. English language requirements: IELTS 6.0 (no less than 5.5 in any element).
