Are you interested in the recent developments in quality assurance, digitalisation and circularity in food safety management systems, food safety culture and fraud? Do you like to enhance our interdisciplinary research principles in the food quality management area? Then this position at the Food Quality and Design group might be the place for you. You will have the possibility to develop your own research ideas and contribute to our research and education activities.
Postdoc summary/title: Postdoc in small intestinal microbiology
This position is part of the TKI project TAPIR (HealThy fAt, haPpy mIcRobiome). The TAPIR consortium, consisting of 13 academic and industrial partners, aims to obtain insights into the specific effects of dietary lipids on the human small intestinal microbiome and how this affects metabolic and immunological health. The post-doctoral researcher (you) will be integrated in an active team that is passionate about the role of the intestinal microbiome, including that of the small intestine. In this project, you will construct synthetic communities of the small intestinal microbiome derived from metagenomics-based predictions on dietary lipid conversion. These synthetic communities will be used to obtain mechanistic insights into small intestinal degradation of dietary lipids and observations will be compared and contrasted to in vivo observations and in silico predictions.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position ‘The Amsterdam Social Network Interventions for Health Simulator (ASNIHS)’ project
The Health & Society Group at Wageningen University has a two-year postdoctoral researcher position available as part of the project, “The Amsterdam Social Network Interventions for Health Simulator (ASNIHS): Building the evidence base to improve the resiliency and health of Amsterdam residents,” in collaboration with Amsterdam community groups and researchers at WUR and University Medical Center Amsterdam. This project aims to build an agent-based model that will simulate community-level programs and test how different social network interventions may impact the success of such programs in improving the resilience and health of Amsterdam residents. In this project, the postdoctoral researcher will work as part of a team to (1) conceptualize the role of social networks in community programs, (2) develop an agent-based model to capture these community and network dynamics in Amsterdam, and (3) contribute to designing best practices in social network interventions. The project is scheduled to start in March 2023.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc – Gamification and Serious Games
We are looking for a highly qualified candidate with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research. Core activities include the design of serious games in collaboration with researchers and developers, the planning of empirical studies involving technology and people, the collection of data, and envisioning new opportunities for data collection, analyzing data, and publishing results. The candidate will have opportunities to participate in a variety of collaborations; interest and potentially experience in the acquisition of extramural funding are desirable. There are several Ph.D. students on the team and supervising Ph.D. students and master’s students is expected. Opportunities to participate in other educational activities will be provided but is not the focus of this position.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc – Impact of land and water use on vector-borne disease risks
A talented postdoc with experience in the field of medical/veterinary entomology and/or disease ecology, and with an interest to contribute to a better understanding of emerging, vector-borne diseases with the ultimate aim to improve human and animal health. You will be employed at the Laboratory of Entomology in a group working on the ecology of host-vector-pathogen interactions (One Health Entomology group).
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc – Interactive assessment of soil health dynamics under farming system transformations
You will contribute to the EU project FoSTA-Health (Food Systems Transformation in Southern Africa for One Health), a 3.5 year project which aims to develop ambitious and inclusive visions and action plans for the transformation of food systems to achieve positive One Health outcomes around four key transformation agendas: (1) diversification of maize production systems; (2) land use change and irrigation development; (3) transitions from domestic to export markets; and (4) dietary diversification. The project involves a large consortium of thirteen partner organisations from across Africa and Europe. Throughout the project, we will be working with cross-system stakeholder groups (from government, industry, farmers, non-governmental organizations and rural communities) and drawing on evidence from case study contexts in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia to understand the complex food system dynamics.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position for Odor-Based Selective Recognition of Veterinary Disease at Wageningen University & Research
Are you the junior postdoc that would like to apply your knowledge and expertise for the development of an ‘e-nose’ for use on poultry farms within the project ‘OBserved? Do you have a strong affiliation with technical innovations as well as farm animal health? And would you like to work in a multidisciplinary team with other researchers from different universities and universities of applied sciences and in close collaboration with poultry farmers and farmers’ advisors, societal organisations and industrial partners? If the answer is yes, please look at the positions that we have to offer at Wageningen University & Research.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position: Organoid Cell Culture and Microfluidic Desease Modelling
As post-doctoral scientist you will contribute to the research to investigate the microbial interactions in urinary tract pathogenesis. Your knowledge of working with organoids and host-microbiota interaction will be valuable for this project.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc integrated host-microbiome models
Wageningen University & Research is hiring a postdoctoral researcher (4 years, full-time employment) to become part of PIG-PARADIGM. In this project funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. researchers at the Laboratory of Microbiology, Host-Microbe Interactomics, Systems and Synthetic Biology and Wageningen Livestock Research join forces with teams at Aarhus University, the University of Copenhagen and Aalborg University in Denmark, and the University of California, Davis in the United States. We aim to decipher interactions of the developing pig, its diet and its intestinal microbiome, as well as the effect of post-weaning stress on intestinal mucosa functioning and susceptibility to infections. We want to turn that knowledge into new strategies for healthier pigs. We will study how members of the intestinal microbiome interact with each other and with the host intestine using advanced organoid-based models, and whether changes in the diet or the environment affect the intestinal microbiome so that less antibiotics are required. You will work in a team that is passionate about the role microbiomes play in the health of humans, animals and our environment.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc on ultra-high field MRI
The focus of this position is on the implementation and validation of microimaging methods at high-/ultra-high-field NMR spectrometers (14-28 T), to boost sensitivity, spatial and chemical resolution in studies of small-volume soft biological materials. The goal of this collaborative project is to achieve cellular-level and microstructural information, not accessible at lower/intermediate magnetic fields, to ultimately aid more sensitive characterization of structure and dynamics in a range of biologically-relevant materials, from bio-regenerative tissues to soft matter and food systems.
