Projectcontroller backoffice

Voor de afdeling Finance & Control van Wageningen Food Safety Research (WFSR) zoeken wij een nieuwe collega.
Ben jij op zoek naar een mooie functie binnen Finance & Control? Wil jij jezelf ontplooien en hierbij de vrijheid én begeleiding krijgen die jij nodig hebt? Heb jij het in je om onze interne projectmanagers op een proactieve manier te ondersteunen? Dan ben jij misschien wel de projectcontroller backoffice die wij zoeken!
Wat ga je doen?

  • Je werkt in een afwisselende functie, waarin je zowel een zelfstandige functie in project-control als een ondersteunende functie gaat vervullen. De zelfstandige project-control functie is o.a. gericht op een aantal thema's met betrekking tot de Wettelijke Onderzoek Taken. De ondersteunende functie is gericht op het nauwkeurig onderbouwen van accountantsdossiers en voorkomende werkzaamheden vanuit frontoffice project-control;
    Je werkt zelfstandig als projectcontroller, waarbij je ook ondersteuning biedt aan de collega's van de front-office. Denk hierbij aan het nauwkeurig onderbouwen van accountantsdossiers of de maandelijkse financiële interne rapportage over projecten. Ook speel je een belangrijke rol bij het opstellen van begrotingen en prognoses
  • Je krijgt een grote mate van verantwoordelijkheid en zelfstandigheid;
  • Je werkt intensief samen met je directe collega's van Finance & Control, projectleiders en management;
  • De Planning & Control cyclus is leidend voor de planning van jouw werkzaamheden. Je draagt zelf de verantwoordelijkheid om deze werkzaamheden tijdig en volledig afgerond te hebben;
  • Je krijgt een gedegen inwerktraject met voldoende begeleiding en coaching om je werk goed te kunnen doen.
    Al met al staat de vacature projectcontroller backoffice garant voor afwisseling, uitdaging en groeimogelijkheden.

PhD in Natural variation in goat milk caseins

Do you want to use your passion for food science to carry out research on milk from individual goats? Are you willing to help our researchers to find answers to better understand natural variation in the composition of goat milk caseins and its influence on goat milk properties? Then this PhD vacancy in the Dairy Science and Technology team of the Food Quality and Design group may be interesting for you.

The main Dutch dairy goat breeds are Saanen and Toggenburger, which originate from Switzerland and are used for their high milk yields. Considering the popularity of goat milk products, surprisingly little is known about the casein fraction of goat milk and its functionality compared to what we know of bovine milk. This knowledge is essential to understand the functionalities of dairy products made from goat milk, such as heat stability of UHT milk or renneting behavior of cheese milk. Therefore, the main aim of the project is to determine variation in goat milk casein composition and casein micelle structure of the Dutch goat breeds and the effect of this variation on selected functionalities.

Your main tasks will be:

  • Designing and executing experiments to determine variation in casein composition, casein post-translational modifications and casein micelle structure in milk obtained from individual goats, using various analytical techniques such as HPLC, LC/MS based proteomics, light scattering and microscopic techniques;
  • designing and executing experiments to understand functionality of goat milk in relation to, for example, heat aggregation of proteins and UHT-milk shelf-life stability;
  • performing in-depth analyses of results and writing of high quality scientific papers.

This PhD project is supported by an industrial dairy partner. The goat milk farmers that are associated with this partner, are providing milk that is processed into a variety of products such as goat milk cheese, UHT milk and infant formula. You will cooperate with these parties to achieve the project objectives and obtain relevant input on your project. Furthermore, you are expected to effectively communicate with project stakeholders and present your results to the wider scientific community.

You are expected to complete a PhD dissertation within four years.

PhD on Transport Phenomena in Environmental Technology

We are looking for a PhD candidate who will develop three phase computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models for granular sludge-based bioreactors and validate these models experimentally.

Anaerobic granular sludge is a well-established biotechnology for treatment of industrial wastewaters during which organic contaminants are converted into biogas. The core of the technology is formation of microbial spherically shaped biofilms (sludge granules) with excellent settling properties. Numerous full-scale installations have been constructed worldwide in the past 40 years. And currently such technologies experience a new boost because of their contribution to the circular economy demanding for reuse of organics in liquid and suspended domestic and industrial waste streams.

However, despite the wide application of granular sludge, the hydraulic behavior of these systems is still poorly understood and often ignored, with still many problems in practice and scientific understanding in sludge and reactor stability and unwanted mass transfer limitations in the anaerobic bioconversion processes. The consequence of this is that the operators at full-scale are unable to predict, what organic loading and recirculation rates would be optimal for maintaining the structural integrity of the sludge granules whilst ensuring good mixing without mass transfer limitations in the reactors. In scientific research, investigators still cannot adequately predict/report how flow profiles in their experimental set-ups have affected their findings on sludge granulation, nor can they compare and translate the shear rates experienced by the granules in the lab-scale to full-scale and how this affects the granulation and conversion processes at various scales. Furthermore, the lack of a sound and first principle based scientific reporting on reactor's hydraulic behavior complicates the comparison of scientific findings between different research groups and laboratories and have kept too many studies on an empirical phenomenological level. With the foreseen further expansion of anaerobic sludge technology in the context of the circular economy, the ministry of education provided a grant in the so called Sector Plan Civil Engineering, to build more fundamental understanding in this field by combining experimental and theoretical approaches. Within this program we are searching for PhD candidate that can give a major contribution to the knowledge development in this field.
