You will contribute to the development and implementation of risk-based assessment, decision support, and monitoring tools to predict and prioritize known and unknown hazards in the food supply chain. You will use a variety of modelling approaches whereby using different datasets to develop quantitative prediction models. You will work in different ongoing research projects involving kinetic, biological, and simulation modelling. Developed models will be applied to simulate the fate of food safety hazards through the food system, to predict the presence of food safety hazards, and to prioritize the importance of food safety hazards to human health.

Multiple transitions are needed to achieve a sustainable, affordable, trustworthy and high-quality food system in the next decade or two that will fulfil the needs of a diverse and growing world population. We need to transit to more circular food systems and a biobased economy taken into account the changing climate. All these changes will have an impact on the current food system and on food safety. Food safety problems will occur at other places in the supply chain and new food safety problems are expected to appear. We should be prepared for such changes to support the safety of the food we consume. Are you ready to join us and help to improve the safety of our food and thereby improving public health?
