NIZO Food Research
Aim: Tribology of simple and complex food systems
Background: NIZO recently acquired a tribometer, able to probe friction between surfaces in a liquid in a wide range of speeds, pressures and kinetic histories. NIZO would like to apply this instrument to better understand the physical meaning of sensory attributes such as ‘smooth’, ‘creamy’, ‘astringent’ etc. Such attributes are usually properties of very complex food systems. In order to unravel the many parameters contributing to the tribology of these systems tribology experiments are needed on liquids with a simple rheology.

Internship vacancy at Cosine B.V.
“Characterisation of a Thermal InfraRed optical
remote sensing instrument”
cosine is developing and testing a miniaturised optical remote sensing instrument for space
applications, based on a fully reflective telescope working in the Thermal InfraRed (TIR) range.
To support the experimental campaign aimed to determine the instrument performance, cosine is
currently looking for a MSc level intern with a strong background in Optics.
The main project tasks are:
The ideal candidate has proven record of:
• Sound knowledge of fundamental Physics with particular emphasis on Optics;
• Experience in optical laboratory setups and measurements;
• Experience in data processing and data analysis;
• Skills in scientific computing and programming;
• Skills in technical reporting and scientific writing.
Internship duration is 5 months (negotiable), preferred starting date is December 1st 2017. Working
language is English.
