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
