04 Okt 2021 Thesis (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)
for the topic “Digitalization and modelling modular sustainable food/feed systems “.

We are looking for a highly motivated new team member (m/w/x) to join our Food Data Group for a

Thesis (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)

for the topic “Digitalization and modelling modular sustainable food/feed systems “.

 

The global food system is complex, involving many actors exchanging vast amount of information and reflected in its sustainable use of land and water and significant food loss and waste. Digital technologies and modelling have the potential to improve efficiency, equity, nutrition and health and sustainability of food/feed. This Thesis/Internship is part of European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program named: SUSINCHAIN – Sustainable insect chain (https://susinchain.eu/). In your thesis at DIL, you will be able to help this effort by performing life cycle assessment, modelling modular proposed system, data collection and writing automated scripts for data handling and exploration. Analytical and mathematical thinking as well as capability to work in an international team will be necessary to achieve this. In turn, you will be able to experience a diverse range of tasks in a motivated, international team.

Areas of responsibility
  • research with regard to food/feed
  • Data collection, automated scripts and analysis related to feed and food
  • Mathematical modelling of the process
  • Assessment of environmental impact using SimaPro
  • Organizing, documenting and presenting results to the team
Your profile
  • Study of food technology, mathematics, computer science, data science or comparable courses
  • Strong understanding of data handling, exploration and analysis.
  • Competencies in data collection and mathematical modelling
  • Structured way of thinking and well-developed coding (C/ C++/ PHP/ Python), data management (MySQL) and analytical skills.
  • Knowledge in life cycle assessment or machine learning using python is an asset.
  • Independent and self-motivated work style, willingness and ability to perform and work in a team
  • Good Microsoft Office skills
  • Good English in writing and speaking

29 Sep 2021 Thesis (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)
for the topic “Scaling factors of sustainable production chains “.

We are looking for a highly motivated new team member (m/w/x) to join our Food Data Group for a

Thesis (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)

for the topic “Scaling factors of sustainable production chains “.

 

This Master thesis/Internship is part of working package 7 (WP7) of European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program named: SUSINCHAIN – Sustainable insect chain (https://susinchain.eu/). The aim of this project is to contribute to novel protein provision for feed and food in Europe by overcoming the remaining barriers for increasing the economic viability of the insect value chain and opening markets by combining forces in a comprehensive multi-actor consortium. The goal of WP7 is development of multi-objective optimization model suitable for the defining optimal insect production scenarios from sustainability perspective.

Aim of student’s master thesis/internship will be the development of scaling factors applicable for the different aspects of production chains including (but not limited to) scale of production, type of feed, type of processing applied, etc. Furthermore, the verification of the developed factors will be performed by the means of LCA approach.

Areas of responsibility
  • Modelling
  • LCA analysis and interpretation of results
  • Data collection and interpretation
Your profile
  • Studies related to modelling or LCA
  • Prior experience in LCA analysis not necessary, but is consider as advantage
  • Ability to generate models and mathematically represent them is prefferable
  • Good communication skills, teamwork and motivation to work on this topic
  • Good computer literacy
  • Good spoken and written English skills required
  • Good German skill is a plus

16 Sep 2021 Theses (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)
for the topic “Life cycle assessment of nutrient recirculation in Aquaculture systems”

We are looking for a highly motivated new team member (m/f/x) to join our Food Data Group for a

Theses (Bachelor- Master or project thesis)

for the topic “Life cycle assessment of nutrient recirculation in Aquaculture systems”

 

With depleting fish stocks and aggravating impacts of climate change, new approaches are needed to ensure food security and sustainability of fish production. The Climaqua project addresses this issue by investigating novel techniques for nutrient recirculation in aquaculture. In your thesis at DIL within the Climaqua project, you will be able to help this effort by performing life cycle assessment of the proposed system. This way you can show if it is indeed possible to reduce climate and other environmental impacts by nutrient recirculation in aquaculture, for instance using algae. Analytical and mathematical thinking as well as capability to work in an international team will be necessary to achieve this. In turn, you will be able to experience a diverse range of tasks in a motivated, international team.

Areas of responsibility
  • Research with regard to Aquaculture
  • Data collection and analysis related to material and energy balances in the system
  • Mathematical modelling of the process
  • Assessment of environmental impact using SimaPro
Your profile
  • Student in the subject area Agricultural/environmental engineering, engineering and business, informatics or similar
  • Competencies in data collection, analysis and mathematical modelling
  • Knowledge in life cycle assessment is an asset
  • Independent and self-motivated work style, willingness and ability to perform and work in a team
  • Good Microsoft Office skills
  • Good english in writing and speaking
