Postdoc in Circular Urban Food Systems&Department of Ecological Tech

Job description

We’re trying to find a bright and impressive postdoc researcher in neuro-scientific metropolitan meals & biomass systems during the Department of ecological tech ( Pursuit will give attention to design of circular supply chains for food & bio-based services and products close to towns and cities. This could be carried out by linking predefined product functionality and matching quality demands to locally available food and biomass resources (including locally produced, utilized, recovered, etc.). a design that is new needs to be developed to calculate the effects of including neighborhood resources to present food and biomass supply string in addition to to evaluate the effect associated with needed quality criteria and connect this to prospective channels of neighborhood resources. Additionally, the device aims to include brand brand new and current (bio)technologies that free the necessary components or constituents through the regional resource channels to produce an extensive spectral range of circular design options.

Therefore, the task aims to develop something to guide circularity-based design of metropolitan meals and biomass movement characteristics by distinguishing the functionality for the items, deriving the quality that is corresponding for the functionality and inventorying neighborhood, metropolitan resource channels that fulfil the high quality and functionality of neighborhood, metropolitan needs. You certainly will build this understanding and model-based approach making use of studies, simulations and situations in Amsterdam. The expected deliverables after two years consist of (however limited by):

  • A overview/review that is scientific on state-of-the-art of circular meals and biomass system
  • A model regarding the device + an instrument description/manual
  • A systematic paper on the growth and initial application of these device

You will end up reaching a few on-going PhDs taking care of metropolitan system modelling and food that is various biomass processing/quality/technology professionals at Agrotechnology & Food Science Group (AFSG) of Wageningen University & Research (WUR).Continue reading
