Post-Doctoral Researcher – Thermal Food Processing

We are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated to work in a collaborative project with an international food company that aims on ultra short pasteurization (USP) and ultra short sterilization (USS) in the milli second (ms) domain at high temperatures. The objective is the design, development & technical testing of a USP/USS reactor. The microstructured reactor with high surface to volume ratio needs to be able to realize different residence times, with low spread residence time distributions, by adjustable inner volumes.
The candidate should have excellent academic qualifications, good communication skills, and strong self-motivation. In addition, enthusiasm and talent to engage in engineering questions and the underlying mechanisms as well as in simulation and modelling aspects is required. Experience in thermal food engineering and processing will be considered a plus. Furthermore, the successful candidate must have a Master and Dr./Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Food Engineering, Food Technology, Bioprocessing or a closely-related area. The position will be open until a suitable candidate is found. A two-page research proposal considering above defined project scope and outlining current challenges, important literature and possible approaches to tackle innovative ultra short preservation and processing challenges is required to consider the application.
We look forward to receiving your online application including the following documents: cover letter including short statement of experience and qualification, a comprehensive CV, two-page research proposal and contact information for two academic references.
