Cambridge Is Looking for a PhD Student to Study Chocolate

Who says you're too old to play with your food?

Now your chocolate cravings can land you a job.

The University of Cambridge is seeking a doctoral student to study the “fundamentals” of chocolate, according to the job posting. The purpose of this “fully-funded” three-and-a-half year program based in the Department of Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology is to find ways to keep chocolate from melting in warm temperatures. The listing adds the position will be “mainly experimental.”

There is just one catch: Only EU nationals can apply.
