U. of Cambridge seeking Ph.D. student who will study chocolate

According to the BBC, the University of Cambridge is seeking a doctoral candidate to focus on chocolate.

The degree will be offered through the chemical engineering and biotechnology program. It will focus on such issues as preventing melting in warm regions.

The would-be doctor of chocolate will be expected to “investigate the factors which allow chocolate, which has a melting point close to that of the human body, to remain solid and retain qualities sought by consumers when it is stored and sold in warm climates.”
