Postdoc in Circular Urban Food Systems&Department of Ecological Tech

Job description

We have been shopping for a bright and impressive postdoc researcher in neuro-scientific metropolitan meals & biomass systems during the Department of ecological tech ( Your quest will concentrate on design of circular supply chains for meals & bio-based items close to towns and cities. This could be carried out by linking predefined item functionality and quality that is corresponding 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 incorporating regional resources to present food and biomass supply string along with to evaluate the effect associated with the needed quality criteria and connect this to prospective channels of regional resources. Additionally, the device aims to integrate brand new and current (bio)technologies that free the mandatory components or constituents through the regional resource channels to produce a broad spectral range of circular design choices.

Consequently, the task aims to produce an instrument to aid circularity-based design of metropolitan meals and biomass movement characteristics by distinguishing the functionality for the services and products, deriving the corresponding quality indicators for the functionality and inventorying regional, urban resource channels that fulfil the high quality and functionality of regional, metropolitan needs. You are going to build this understanding and approach that is model-based studies, simulations and instances in Amsterdam. The anticipated deliverables after 24 months consist of (although not restricted to):

  • 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 paper that is scientific the growth and initial application of these device

You’re going to be getting together with a few on-going PhDs focusing on metropolitan system modelling and different meals and biomass processing/quality/technology professionals at Agrotechnology & Food Science Group (AFSG) of Wageningen University & analysis (WUR). You certainly will work inside the system that is urban (USE) sub-group of Environmental tech division (section of AFSG), but 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.
