Job offer for Master Degree in Nb4D researche group at the IQAC

Food safety. Detection of antibiotics in milk.

The use of antibiotics in animal farms is a widespread practice nowadays, with direct impact on food safety. Due to the large number of samples to be analyzed, there is a need for rapid, sensitive and high-performance analytical techniques for the detection of drugs in food samples. We will work to develop an immunochemical assay for the detection of tetracycline residues in milk, to ensure samples are within the maximum mandatory residue limits established by the European Community.

Tasks to develop in the project:

   - Production of antibodies
   - Evaluation of antibodies perfomance
   - Development of immunochemical techniques for antibiotics detection


   - Motivated person interested in doing a Masters work
   - Degree in biology or analytical chemistry
   - High level of English is desired
   - Availability from February to July 2020
