Occupancy rate: 100%
Vacancy Type: Research staff
The PhD Candidate will work in a Strategic Basic Research project (cSBO of Flanders’ Food): EffSep – Efficient separation of macroconstituents from biomass by combining unit operations based on insights in structural organization. You will work in an interdisciplinary team of research groups, during this 4year project. In the frame of circular economy and biobased thinking, an increased attention is going to valorization of food waste, preferably producing new products/derivatives of the food waste with an added value as high as possible in the valorization chain. On the other hand, to be able to fulfill current needs and trends towards the use of alternative and new biomass and their ingredients in the food, attention is going to producing food ingredients from these biomasses. This biomass is highly susceptible towards deterioration, and therefore stabilization techniques are needed, not hampering later extraction technologies or affecting the (technological/functional) quality of the extracted macroconstituents.
In that respects, your research work will focus on novel strategies for stabilization of biomass, and will focus on its impact on the extractability of macroconstituents. The work will be carried out at the research unit VEG-i-TEC, Department of Food Technology, Safety and Health, at Ghent University – Campus Kortrijk. Starting date is at the latest 1st of November.
