IRTA is currently seeking an enthusiastic and motivated PhD candidate to join the Food Safety and Functionality Program (FSF) and Food Quality and Technology Program (FQT) . We invite applications from ambitious candidates with relevant research experience and passion to conduct research and innovation activities on the “Smart and innovative tools for early detection and classification of poultry myopathies and microbial load and for the improvement and quality prediction of detective meat”.
Concept and approach: Digitalization of the meat industry is crucial to increase competitiveness and ensure product quality. The poultry industry has seen an increase in several breast meat myopathies over the past decade, which has an enormous economic cost to the global poultry sector. Even the potential of the smart technologies currently existing in the market, none is still ready to detect myopathies accurately, non-invasively and on-line. Besides, the impact of these myopathies on the food safety and microbiological quality of poultry carcasses and commercialized products has not been widely investigated yet. However, this could be a significant concern to the poultry industry because myopathies may shorten the shelf-life of meat, compromise its food safety and increase food waste.
The general aim of the PhD project: To develop a smart system for early detection of poultry myopathies and microbial load and to predict shelf-life of meat, as well as to develop innovative strategies to (re-)valorise meat affected with myopathies.
