ETH Zurich is one of the leading universities of the world with a strong focus on science and engineering. In 2010 it established the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC) in collaboration with the National Research Foundation (NRF) to do interdisciplinary research on pressing problems.
The Singapore-ETH Centre is home to a community of doctoral, postdoctoral, and professorial researchers working in three main programmes: Future Cities Laboratory, Future Resilient Systems, and Future Health Technologies. The centre provides a multicultural and interdisciplinary environment to researchers working on diverse themes, with the shared vision of translating research to practical solutions for more sustainable and liveable cities, resilient physical and social urban systems, and patient-centric healthcare systems.
In collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS) and A*STAR-SIFBI SEC is undertaking a research project on "Urban Single-Cell Protein Production Harnessing Emerging Microalgae-based Up- and Downstream Concepts". It addresses some immanent food security associated challenges by developing an urban single-cell protein production and R&D platform that tackles the challenge of increasing Singapore’s domestic food supply resulting from the quest for independence and a rapidly growing and steadily ageing population, covering the value-chain from primary production to food concept development.
Singapore targets increasing its domestic, independent food supply under urbanized constraints by 30% until 2030. The project aims to enable independent, domestic, resilient, and urban food/protein supply by consumer relevant bright yellow heterotrophic microalgae biomass:
As a Doctoral Researcher you will be responsible for research that aims to understand the Singaporean consumers’ behavior, palate, and need related to innovative microalgae-based food products through extended consumer studies. A close link between early testing of product concepts, product development, and understanding consumer needs will foster the economic success of final products.
