Promoting flavour research among PhD students in Europe

Giract Flavour Research

PhD candidates across Europe are encouraged to apply for the PhD Flavour Research Award Programme, which is organised by Giract, the Geneva based transnational consultancy specialising in food ingredients, and co-ordinated by Professor Andy Taylor, University of Nottingham.

The programme, which is now in its ninth year addresses students who are about to complete their PhD as well as those who are about to commence their PhD studies. It is supported by a consortium of 7 premier companies that aim to raise awareness of their industry and the career opportunities in order to increase the flavour research talent pool in Europe. These are:

  • DSM Food Specialities
  • Givaudan
  • International Flavors & Fragnances Inc
  • Kerry
  • Lesaffre International
  • MCLS Europe
  • Nestle


The closing date for applications is 31 October 2018. More information about this opportunity is available at
