Postdoc in Circular Urban Food Systems&Department of Environmental Tech

Job description

We have been hunting for a bright and impressive postdoc researcher in the area of metropolitan food & 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. 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 brand new design device has got to be developed to calculate the results of integrating regional resources to present food and biomass supply string along with to evaluate the effect of this needed quality criteria and connect this to possible channels of neighborhood resources. Moreover, the device aims to include brand new and existing (bio)technologies that free the desired components or constituents through the resource that is local to generate a diverse spectral range of circular design choices.

Consequently, the task aims to produce an instrument to guide circularity-based design of metropolitan meals and biomass flow characteristics by pinpointing the functionality associated with the items, deriving the matching quality indicators when it comes to functionality and inventorying regional, metropolitan resource channels that fulfil the product quality and functionality of regional, metropolitan needs. You certainly will build this understanding and model-based approach making use of studies, simulations and instances in Amsterdam.
