The successful candidate will have a key role in the setup and development of equipment processes and methods.

We offer you the opportunity to work in a committed team on varied and challenging projects in an open and pleasant working atmosphere. You will also find modern equipment for NGS and data management.

Areas of responsibility
  • Data acquisition, transformation, storage and analysis
  • Analysis and visualization of sequencing data from whole genome (re)sequencing, (meta)barcoding, meta-transcriptomics, meta-genomics, etc.
  • Processing of raw sequence data (quality control, pre-processing)
  • Read mapping against reference genomes or transcriptomes (including post-alignment processing) and de novo genome assembly
  • Setting up (meta)barcoding strategies for food authenticity control
  • Use of online bioinformatic tools and programming of own software tools
  • Application of and collaboration in research and industrial projects
Your profile
  • Completed study in bioinformatics, biosciences or biotechnology with a focus on bioinformatics or a comparable qualification
  • Initial experience with NGS data analysis or analysis of metagenomic data
  • Good programming skills (e.g. Python, R) and statistical knowledge
  • Knowledge in the following areas is advantageous
  • - Program libraries for bioinformatics (e.g. Bioconductor)
  • - Handling with large amounts of data and databases (e.g. using SQL queries)
  • - Data aggregation, visualization and analysis
  • - Food and food-related organisms (microorganisms, plants, animals)
  • Precise and independent work, team spirit
  • German and/or English (fluent in spoken and written)

05 Mär 2020 Master/Bachelor thesis / internship
In the shortest possible notice, interested in working in area of Life Cycle Assessment on topic: "LCA comparative study of FOX mobile juice production system and standard industrial juice production system".

In order to strengthen our Food Data and Advanced Technologies group teams, we are looking for a Student (m/f/n) for

Master/Bachelor thesis / internship

In the shortest possible notice, interested in working in area of Life Cycle Assessment on topic: "LCA comparative study of FOX mobile juice production system and standard industrial juice production system".

 

This Master (Bachelor) thesis/internship will concentrate on one of the tasks of European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program named: Innovative down-scaled FOod processing in a boX (FOX) (Öffnet externen Link in neuem Fensterhttps://www.fox-foodprocessinginabox.eu/). The aim of this project is development of mobile and modular processing units with innovative small-scaled mild preservation technologies for use in regional food systems, as a basis for innovative SME-led business models.

Aim of master thesis/internship will be evaluation of environmental impact (LCA) of two different apple juice production systems, one based on FOX approach and of the other one considered standard larger-scale industrial system.

Areas of responsibility
  • Literature research
  • Collection of data relevant for LCA for mentioned topic
  • LCA analysis and interpretation of results
Your profile
  • Studies in the field of food technology or related to topic
  • Prior experience in LCA analysis not necessary, but is an advantage
  • Good communication skills, teamwork and motivation to work on this topic
  • Good computer literacy
  • Good spoken and written English skills required

06 Nov 2019 Research Assistant (m/f/d)
with proven competence in the characterization of dispersed multiphase systems, mainly of organic-biological origin

To reinforce our Center for Food Physics at the earliest possible date, we are looking for a

Research Assistant (m/f/d)

with proven competence in the characterization of dispersed multiphase systems, mainly of organic-biological origin

DIL German Institute of Food Technology is a research institute supported by 175 member companies from the food industry and related fields. The competences and technical abilities of the institute cover the entire spectrum of food technology.

The research platform Structure and Functionality focuses on the implementation of a materials science approach and the creation of new structural designs that offer specific properties for innovative products and processes.

A major advantage of the research platform lies in its potential in terms of equipment and methodology, which enables the investigation of a broad spectrum of physical and physicochemical substance properties. The practical implementation of the research focus is reflected in processes such as extrusion, dynamic and static high-pressure treatment or the application of pulsed electric fields.

Besides working on challenging projects using state-of-the-art technology and as part of a dedicated team, we offer you the opportunity to participate actively in the development of the research platform and to contribute your own scientific ideas.

Areas of responsibility
  • Lectures and exercises in the international Master program "Food Process and Product Engineering”
  • Drafting of project outlines and research proposals in the field of food structure and functionality
  • Coordination of projects within the framework of pre-competitive research and bilateral contract research
  • Provision of research services
Your profile
  • Professional experience in the area of food physics, with sound knowledge in the following fields:
  • - Rheology/Rheometry: fluid disperse systems, visco-elastic solids
  • - Tensiometry: polarity of fluids and solid surfaces, mutual influence of fluids and solids
  • - Particle analysis: size distribution, charge, polarity, density, porosity
  • - Thermal analysis: phase change/glass transition, thermal capacity and conductivity
  • A high degree of scientific commitment combined with an independent and solution-oriented way of working
  • An analytical mind, attention to detail
  • Creativity and an interdisciplinary way of working
  • Very good written and spoken German and English skills
