Postdoc in Circular Urban Food Systems&Department of Ecological Tech

Job description

We’re to locate a bright and impressive postdoc researcher in neuro-scientific metropolitan meals & biomass systems during the Department of ecological tech ( Your quest will consider design of circular supply chains for meals & bio-based items close to urban centers. This is often carried out by linking predefined item functionality and matching quality demands to locally available food and biomass resources (including locally produced, utilized, recovered, etc.). a design that is new has got to be developed to calculate the results of including neighborhood resources to current food and biomass supply chain along with to evaluate the effect of this needed quality criteria and connect this to prospective channels of neighborhood resources. Moreover, the device is designed to include brand new and current (bio)technologies that free the necessary components or constituents through the resource that is local to generate a broad spectral range of circular design choices.

Consequently, the task is designed to build up an instrument to guide circularity-based design of metropolitan meals and biomass movement characteristics by distinguishing the functionality associated with items, deriving the corresponding quality indicators when it comes to functionality and inventorying regional, metropolitan resource channels that fulfil the product quality and functionality of regional, urban needs. You certainly will build this understanding and model-based approach making use of studies, simulations and instances in Amsterdam. The anticipated deliverables after 24 months consist of ( not restricted to):

  • A overview/review that is scientific on state-of-the-art of circular meals and biomass system
  • A model associated with device + an instrument description/manual
  • A clinical paper on the growth and initial application of such custom writings device

You’re going to be reaching a few on-going PhDs focusing on metropolitan system modelling and different meals and biomass processing/quality/technology specialists at Agrotechnology & Food Science Group (AFSG) of Wageningen University & analysis (WUR). You will definitely work in the system that is urban (USE) sub-group of Environmental tech division (section of AFSG), however you will additionally play a crucial role in connecting different present and future research work with circular meals and biomass system in the whole AFSG. As a part associated with division of Environmental Technology, you will be likely to be involved in our applications for research grants and activities that are educational. Element of your projects is likely to be done at Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan possibilities (AMS) and Wageningen Food & Bio-based Research (WFBR), of which you’ll be expected to subscribe to the tool development with different stakeholders that are local Amsterdam or from WFBR to co-develop, use and validate this device. Following the end associated with the task, we seek to give you the prospect a vocation viewpoint during the used research institute WFBR.
