Four open junior positions within the EU Project “SAMCAPS at P&G, Brussels, Belgium

SAMCAPS (Self-Assembled MicroCAPSules: Synthesis, Characterization, and Eco-friendly Application in Home Care Products”) is a Marie Sk?odowska Curi funded European Industrial Doctorate (EID) in the Horizon 2020 framework, with two participating partners, one from academia (CSGI – Center for Colloid and Surface Science) and one from industry (Procter & Gamble). SAMCAPS is a high-quality research program that aims to train young professionals in the field of colloid and polymer science through the collaboration between top-level European academic and industrial entities. The goal of the project is to address the current need for bio-degradable materials and efficient consumer goods usage, by exploiting new eco-friendly materials and methods of encapsulation that will be applied in home- and beauty care consumer products where the targeted delivery of beneficial actives is required. The fellows will have the possibility to work at a world-class scientific level in multidisciplinary and international teams, at the interface between the academic and the industrial world. Procter & Gamble will host and train the early-stage researchers for the application of the developed technology in consumer good products. CSGI will host the early-stage researchers at its premises at the University of Florence/University of Siena and will provide training as well as the necessary means for implementing project activities. A career development plan, for both the academic and industrial part will be established, and its implementation will be seamlessly supported.

10th University Course Fluidization Technology - November 5-8, 2018 - Hamburg, Germany

Fluidization technology has a tremendous economic importance and is used for a wide range of physical and chemical processes. This course highlights he fundamentals and applications of various fluidized bed processes for drying, coating, granulation and agglomeration of particles with practical hints and extensive calculation examples. The focus is on fluid mechanics, mixing, heat and mass transfer and particle formulation mechanisms. Furthermore, actual appliations as well as modern computational tools and measuring techniques are presented. Practical process demonstrations in leading laboratories and tutorials will strengthen the acquired knowledge given by leading national and international scientists and experts from academia and industry. The course is designed for people from various backgrounds (engineers, chemists, food and pharmaceutical technologists) and with different levels of experience, who need to understand the fundamentals of applications of modern and efficient fluidized bed processes. The course language is English.

Partec 2019 - April 9-11, 2019 - Nuremberg, Germany

PARTEC is one of the largest international conferences devoted to all aspects of particle and powder technology, including particle formation processe , particle characterisation and measurement methods and equipment, processes such as agglomeration, compaction and coating, formulation and performance of products, and applications of particles of any kind. Modern production processes in chemical, pharmaceutical and biological industries are characterized by solids processes with complex process structures. Grand challenges has been achieved to better understand and to adjust processes for particle product design and the corresponding and required product properties, which are of multiscale nature. Besides this classical fields the PARTEC wants to adress also emerging fields of applications of particle technology in life sciences and medicine, environmental and energy technology, synthesis reactions, materials science, electronics, photonics and additive manufacturing, which influence our daily life. For this reasons the major topic of the next PARTEC in 2019 is „Particles for a better life“. PARTEC attracts a very wide mix of attendees, from both academy and industry, all meeting together in the same place and surrounded by POWTECH, the world’s leading exhibition for the processing, analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids. PARTEC welcomes contributions from researchers in universities, industrial companies and other research organizations. Industry specific and also joined research proposals between industry and research organizations are appreciated. Contributions covering all aspects of particle science and applications are welcome.

Researcher in materials science looking for a position in a R&D unit

I am a food engineer with over 10 years of experience in research and in management of scientific projects, focusing on biopolymers area and specifica ly in bio-packaging for food. During the last two years I was involved in several international projects which are mainly focus on investigation of emulsion systems and, in particular oil encapsulation procedures. Today I want to value my expertise in a company. My interdisciplinary scientific background, which spreads from the engineering to physico-chemistry applied in pharmaceutical, agri-food and cosmetic fields, makes me a good element to join a dynamic and ambitious R&D group. My dynamism, my scientific curiosity, my strong work-capacity and autonomy, my ability to communicate with collaborators coupled with a good team-work attitude will allow me to adapt very quickly to your expectations and to overcome the challenges that are given to me.
