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
About Company: Trojan Technologies is the world leader in advanced ultraviolet (UV) fluid treatment technology.
Project Title: Byproduct analysis in ultraviolet-treated liquid foods
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.
