A collaboration between Delft University of Technology, Wageningen University and Dutch food industries will develop a unique suite of complementary small angle scattering and NMR techniques to quantify multiscale structures in food systems under dynamic processing conditions. Three PhD students will exploit the food structural expertise available in the consortium for generation of hierarchical models describing food structure.
Two PhD student positions are available in Delft. One student will focus on cellulose by small-angle X-ray scattering during processing and will perform measurements at the synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble. The second student will focus on small-angle neutron scattering on the aggregation of proteins under shear and will do some experimental work at the neutron facility at the Bragg institute in Australia.
Conditions of employment
TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week and the option of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
