A postdoc position working at the interface between bioimaging, food science and biophysics is available the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense. Employment can take place from 1 January 2022 or soon thereafter.
The successful candidate will work on a project focused on the microstructural basis of product stability in novel food types containing dairy and non-dairy ingredients.
The project is interdisciplinary and explorative and will develop new sample types, original use of microscopy tools and implementation/development of image analysis methods in conjunction with concepts from food science. The main focus will be to establish a relationship between micro and nanostructure of food materials and their physical stability, and to develop a toolbox based on microscopy. The project is performed as a collaboration between a university (SDU) and two partners from the food industry: Arla Foods and IFF Denmark. Employment and main workplace will be at SDU, Odense, Denmark.
