Thesis project position (Bachelor-, Master- or Project-work)

on topic of: „Novel Food Design Based on Insect Biomass“

The development of new and more sustainable food products is becoming a key to the independence of traditional protein supply. At this place, insects are often positioned as ecological compatible solutions. However, their sustainability can be assured by a set of specific production and processing technologies. For this reason it is necessary to evaluate the potential of existing and new technologies for the economic and ecological efficiency of insect biomass application for food purposes. The details of the project are discussed in further consultation.

We offer the possibility of autonomous conduction of a 4-6 month project in the field of environmental impact assessment/sustainability in a highly innovative company.

Areas of responsibility
  • Product development combined with (novel) processing technologies
  • System (Life Cycle) thinking
  • Cost-benefit analysis and similar models
  • Support in environmental impact assessments and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Your profile
  • Agriculture, Food science and technology, Biotechnology, Environmental engineering or similar study programs
  • Self-dependent, committed and able to work in a team
  • Very good English knowledge
  • Knowledge of German is an advantage
