Application Deadline: June 1st, 2020
For this position your host organisation will be the DIL German Institute of Food Technologies e.V. in Quakenbrück, Germany, in the department of Advanced Technologies. You will be given the opportunity to work within a network of international partners in the context of the EC-funded Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action Innovative Training Network (ITN) TRANSIT (transit-itn.com) and register for a PhD at the University of Malta.
Sustainable food production has become a worldwide priority. Sustainable technologies (high hydrostatic pressure- HHP, pulsed electric field- PEF, ultrasound-US and nonthermal plasma-NTP) provide clean-label, nutritious food products and solutions to antimicrobial resistance. TRANSIT will train young scientists who will be capable of creating a transformational change to drive utility of sustainable food technologies through an interdisciplinary action. TRANSIT is a research and training programme aiming at integrating microbiology, food processing technology, cost benefit analyses, quantitative microbiology, and consumer sciences.
TRANSIT will provide a unique combination of hands-on research training, non-academic placements, summer schools and workshops on research-related and transferable skills by the academic and non-academic partners of the consortium.
This ESR project aims to quantify the decontamination efficiency of ultrasound technology on fruti/vegetable dairy products, and to develop risk assessment models to assess the impact of these decontamination technologies on the public health risk and reduction of food spoilage. The project output will provide product/process designers with quantitative tools to optimally design high quality products.
