    Fonterra are looking for two Research Scientists to join the Food Chemistry team based at our Research and Development Centre in Palmerston North.

    Working in partnership with the Food Design & Analysis and Food Structure Teams, the Food Chemistry team focuses on developing new dairy ingredients and their use in beverages, dairy powders, dairy foods, and protein-fortified foods.

    These two roles will have a focus on one, or a combination of, the below areas of specialisation:

    1. Protein chemistry (fundamental for medical foods, sports, dairy foods, dairy beverages)
    2. Powder surface properties, rehydration, dispersion, solubility
    3. Soft matter physics application, including modelling, to foods

    Any responses should be sent directly to Dr Steve Taylor (

    Senior Research Scientist - 37771

    • Take the next step in your career at our world-renowned Research and Development Centre
    • Utilise your food science-based research and development expertise with leading edge dairy technology
    • New pathways, a diversity of products and innovative ideas; it’s your chance to change the game with Fonterra.

    Your Purpose:

    As a Senior Research Scientist, you’ll be part of the Food Structure team based at Fonterra’s Research and Development Centre in Palmerston North. This is a science team aligned with Fonterra’s Foodservice business unit with projects predominantly focused on Butter, Cream Cheese, Mozzarella and UHT Cream. 

    You’ll be involved in both New Product Development and longer term New Technology Development research and have the opportunity to grow your subject matter expertise to create and enrich concepts.

    What you will bring:

    Your strong communication skills will foster a positive team environment, direct traffic and enable you to make confident decisions. You are a natural leader who fits easily into complex cross-functional teams.

    Your experience in emulsion science paired with your passion for innovation will enable you to problem solve with a food structure hypothesis-lead approach.

    Key attributes will be:

    • PhD in Food Science is preferred, with a deep knowledge of food micro-structure plus emulsion and colloid science
    • Experience in leading the design & execution of research and development trials, and interpretation & communication of findings – both written and oral
    • Comfortable working in laboratory, pilot plant and factory environments

    Our Story

    As New Zealand’s largest business, and a world-leading dairy exporter, Fonterra’s high-quality dairy ingredients and branded dairy products are consumed in over 100 countries around the globe.

    Located in Palmerston North, New Zealand, the Fonterra Research and Development Centre (FRDC) is home to a highly collegial team of around 300 qualified scientists, technologists and engineers – many of whom are the world’s leading experts in dairy science – and it is investing in new techniques with cutting edge technology right now!

    Primary Location : New Zealand-Palmerston North

    Hours of Work : Full time

    Applications close on 6 October.

    Research Fellow

    • In the Areas of Soft Matter, Scattering & Biological Physics
    • 2-Year Fixed-Term Position until July 2020
    • $83,786 Salary + Superannuation, Flexible Working Arrangements Available

    The Role

    You will conduct experimental research funded by the Australian Research Council Discovery project “Rational design of new synthetic antifreeze molecules for cryopreservation”. This exciting experimental program has a number of aspects which include: studying the interactions of cryoprotectants with membranes using Small Angle X-ray and Neutron Scattering (SAXS/SANS) and Neutron Membrane Diffraction, measurement of the permeability of biological cells, conducting cryopreservation trials and determining the thermal properties of solutions using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The research fellow is expected to contribute significantly to several of these aspects, but the specific direction of the project will be determined by the background and expertise of the successful candidate.
