For the 12 PUREFOOD positions we have on offer (posted in an earlier blog) we received more than 300 applications. The quality of the applications is high, which means the deadline of 3 January 2011 will not be extended. The vacancies have been closed. At the moment the PUREFOOD consortium is busy shortlisting 4 candidates for each position. We anticipate to notify all candidates whether or not they will be invited for an interview by the end of January.
