Biomedical Algorithm Engineer

Innovating towards a healthier future with chip and digital technology in food and health

In 2050 we are expected to live with 10 billion people on this planet. To let all those people live and eat well, while they take care of our planet, we need groundbreaking, sustainable (technology) solutions. That’s why we, at OnePlanet Research Center, are questioning ourselves:
What if we can measure and understand what is good for the world and for each individual person? In terms of food and agriculture, in terms of health?
What if we can empower people towards more sustainable choices?
What if we can make data-driven nutrition and health possible?
What if we can manage stress to make people more resilient?
What if we can monitor the health of plants and animals?
What if we develop technology which does not adversely affect our environment, but which supports it?
What if we can transform mass production of food into personalized food on demand?
What if …?

At OnePlanet Research Center we don’t just imagine it. We work on it. We dream ánd do. We research and develop digital technology in food, agriculture and health domains achieving behavior change. Change that is needed to create a healthier future, for our planet and for humanity.

OnePlanet Research Center
Innovation center for chip and digital technology in food and health

OnePlanet Research Center is a multidisciplinary collaboration agreement between Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Radboud University, Radboudumc and imec. We use the latest chip and digital technology to create a society in which everyone can live a healthy life and has access to good and sufficient food.

We initiate groundbreaking, fundamental and applied research, groundbreaking innovations and smart product development. This is only possible by using and bringing together great ideas, innovations and chip and digital technologies from different disciplines and work closely together with industry. 
We ensure that companies, education, researchers, social institutions and citizens work together. We combine specialisms from the fields of agriculture, food and health and turn dreams into feasible solutions that contribute to a more sustainable society. 

What you will do

We are looking for a Biomedical Algorithm Engineer to expand our OnePlanet Research Center in Wageningen, Gelderland. You will work in signal processing for the development, optimization, and implementation of biomedical algorithms. You will work in a multidisciplinary team of electronic engineers, bio-chemical engineers and data scientists creating innovative health solutions. The tasks include:

  • Develop and optimize algorithms to estimate physiological parameters in real-time, using signals from wearable sensors, like Accelero, Gyro, ECG, EEG, EMG, EOG, PPG, GSR, and BioZ.
  • Design, build and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable code using good software engineering techniques.
  • Create biomedical models to relate sensor data to physiological parameters.
  • Create methods to evaluate and analyze the performance of the developed algorithms.
  • Set up and execute data collection campaigns aimed at validating sensors and algorithms.
  • Dive into state-of-the-art-technology on biomedical and nutrition applications to discover which technologies can be applied for our experiments/trials on sensors.
  • Dive into state-of-the-art-technology on biomedical and nutrition applications to discover which technologies can be applied for our experiments/trials on sensors.

What we do for you

We offer a challenging and international environment at the forefront of technology, in an international network of renowned industrial customers. This is your opportunity to bring new technologies to the market that will have an impact on tomorrow’s society.

OnePlanet Research Center is a multidisciplinary collaboration agreement between Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Radboud University, Radboudumc and imec.
