Master/Bachelor thesis or Internship
interested in working on investigation of suitability of different electrode materials for pulsed electric field (PEF) applications.
Aim of the work is to evaluate suitability of different electrode materials (other than existing steel or titanium) to minimize electrode erosion and electrolytical reactions occurring at the interfaces of the electrodes during processing of food.
The work is part of the European research and innovation project FOX: Innovative down-scaled FOod processing in a boX (https://www.fox-foodprocessinginabox.eu/). The goal of the project is development of a mobile fruit and vegetable processing unit for mild extraction and preservation, including Pulsed Electric Fields. For potential improvement of down-scaled unit performance with respect to product quality and treatment efficiency, exploration of new electrode materials is foreseen.
We offer possibility for independent working on the project in the duration of 6 to 12 months in the area of novel food technologies in an innovative, international and exciting working environment.
Expected start is from January 2021, with certain flexibility.
Then we look forward to receiving your CV, contact details and the earliest possible starting date, preferably by email.

in the field of insect production and research
The German Institute for Food Technology (DIL e.V.) is involved in the breeding of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) and the fattening of its larvae. Breeding and fattening are to be further expanded and scientific approaches are to be pursued.
Then we are happy to receive your complete application documents stating the earliest possible start date, preferably by email.
