Chocolate lovers are being given the chance to indulge their sweet tooth by becoming a ‘doctor of chocolate’ at Cambridge University.
A researcher is being sought for a PhD on chocolate by the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.
The challenge for the ‘doctor of chocolate’ is to develop a chocolate that wont melt in warm climates.
Candidates wishing to study chocolate need to apply by 29 August.
The would-be ‘doctor of chocolate’ will be expected to investigate why chocolate has a melting point close to that of the human body and how this can be changed.
The research project is “mainly experimental”, but will require good mathematical skills, the advert says.
