Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in enzymatic processes for food protein nanofibrils

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to take part in developing protein structures for new sustainable food products. Changing our food system is a key aspect in the transition to a sustainable society. In this process, new innovative ways of processing proteins are needed to achieve attractive structural and functional properties for food products that can facilitate the “protein shift”, from animal to plant resources. In this project, we will investigate how protein nanofibrils can be efficiently produced from different plant resources using enzymatic pretreatment. We will then evaluate the produced fibrils as building blocks in model systems for food and study how the structures are degraded in our food digestion system. The project will provide new knowledge that can constitute the basis for a more sustainable society as well as give us new insights into the biochemical properties of protein/amyloid fibrils.

The postdoctoral fellow is expected to have a leading role in projects with responsibility for running and further developing it. The position provides great opportunities for an ambitious researcher to develop skills within a rapidly growing research field at the interface between biochemistry, biopolymers and food science.

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral researcher on Cellular production of food macronutrients through systems biology

The current environmental footprint for the production of important macronutrients such as proteins or lipids motivates the development of radical and innovative food production systems. Synthetic and molecular biology are emerging as fundamental tools to engineer microorganisms as cell factories for the production of a wide range of bioproducts, including food ingredients. We have been using microorganisms throughout millennia to produce important food products such as cheese, yoghurt, or beer. In this sense, we are currently in a second domestication era where we have the genetic engineering tools to modify the metabolic pathways of industrial microorganisms towards desired food macronutrients. In this project we aim to create a proof of concept for the production of food ingredients from agricultural waste streams through microbial engineering and precision fermentation.

About KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden – Official Website

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, abbreviated KTH, is a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH conducts research and education within engineering and technology, and is Sweden’s largest technical university. Currently, KTH consists of five schools with four campuses in and around Stockholm.

KTH was established in 1827 as Teknologiska Institutet (Institute of Technology), and had its roots in Mekaniska skolan (School of Mechanics) that was established in 1798 in Stockholm. But the origin of KTH dates back to the predecessor to Mekaniska skolan, the Laboratorium Mechanicum, which was established in 1697 by Swedish scientist and innovator Christopher Polhem. Laboratorium Mechanicum combined education technology, a laboratory and an exhibition space for innovations. In 1877 KTH received its current name, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology). The King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf is the High Protector of KTH.

KTH is the highest ranked technical university in Sweden. It is ranked top 100 in the world among all universities in the 2020 QS World University Rankings.
