• Development of a functional multi-ingredient mix capable of simultaneously treating different disorders.
• Generation and purification of bioactive peptides from different protein sources such as food products.
• Evaluation of the impact of biological rhythms on the effectiveness of bioactive compounds.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate fulfilling these requirements at the time of initiating the contract are:
a) Have the title of doctor
b) Be under 30 years of age.
c) Not have developed any type of research activity at the URV within the 6 months immediately prior to the start of the contract.
