O Agri Advanced Technologies GmbH (AAT)
Agri Advanced Technologies GmbH (AAT) is a young subsidiary of the globally operating EW GROUP which is based in Visbek, Lower Saxony. They develop innovative technologies for the breeding and husbandry of poultry, such as technical solutions for determining the sex of chicks in eggs, sanitisation of feed, as well as machines for sorting and vaccination. In doing so, they benefit from the network and the know-how transfer of their international affiliate companies.
AAT is pleased to announce that it is offering an immediate position in its department for “Feed Hygiene” as a Master Thesis / Career Start.
Thesis: Innovative approach to the sanitisation of mash feeds: A field study to verify the suitability for practical use
Feed hygiene is of particular importance in the production of SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) eggs for vaccine production, and at higher breeding levels, in the areas of laying and growing.
Different hydrothermal and chemical processes for sanitisation have already been established in the field. However, chemical processes have now been banned in some countries and hydrothermal processes have the disadvantage of high processing costs.
The study should provide an overview of the currently practiced procedures, the technology of the latter’s process, and the respective problems. Based on this study, AAT will present its approaches for innovative solutions. The main component of the task is the implementation of a field study at a test site to check and assess the practicability of the method. When writing your master's thesis, you will work closely with our product management and receive the support you need for data collection and analysis.
To qualify for this position, you should already have a Bachelor's degree in Agricultural Science and be in a course for a Master's Degree in Livestock Science or Agribusiness.
You should have strong communication skills, like to think in terms of technical and economic tasks in the area of livestock science, and possess a good command of the English language.
Organisational skills, willingness to travel, independent and a solution-oriented work attitude, as well as a high degree of flexibility and self-motivation, complete your profile.
The successful completion of the project will serve as a base for good prospects for a potential employment thereafter. You gain practical specialist’s knowledge in all aspects of feed disinfection. During the project (up to 6 months) you will also receive a monthly allowance and your housing costs are covered.
