Mitacs Postdoc Internship (Trojan Technologies) – Chemistry and Chemical Engineering

Desired Start Date: ASAP

Mitacs Program: Accelerate
Company: Trojan Technologies
Project Length:  1 or 2 years
Location: London Ontario
No. of Positions Available:  1
Language: English

About Company: Trojan Technologies is the world leader in advanced ultraviolet (UV) fluid treatment technology.

Project Title: Byproduct analysis in ultraviolet-treated liquid foods

Project Description:
Ultraviolet irradiation is effective for inactivating bacteria and viruses. However, in complex matrices it has the possibility of initiating unwanted reactions resulting in undesirable byproducts. This project will analyze UV-treated liquids using LCMS/MS, GC/MS, HPLC, and UV-Vis to identify and quantify byproducts in liquid foods.
