Our company is to locate a bright and impressive postdoc researcher in the area of metropolitan meals & biomass systems during the Department of ecological tech (http://www.ete.wur.nl/UK/). Your quest will concentrate on design of circular supply chains for meals & bio-based items close to urban centers.

Also, the device is designed to integrate brand new and current (bio)technologies that free the necessary components or constituents through the regional resource channels to generate a diverse spectral range of circular design choices.
Consequently, the task aims to build up something to aid circularity-based design of metropolitan meals and biomass flow characteristics by distinguishing the functionality of this items, deriving the matching quality indicators when it comes to functionality and inventorying regional, metropolitan resource channels that fulfil the standard and functionality of regional, metropolitan demands. You will definitely build this understanding and approach that is model-based studies, simulations and situations in Amsterdam. The anticipated deliverables after two years consist of (however limited by):
- A clinical overview/review paper on advanced of circular food and biomass system
- A model associated with device + an instrument description/manual
- A systematic paper on the growth and initial application of such device
