sustainable solutions for OnePlanet Research Center
In 2050 we are expected to live with 10 billion people on this planet. How can we make our food production and supply sustainable to stop depleting the planet of her resources? Are we able to tackle diseases early on and keep ourselves and the planet healthy for the future to come? Truth be told, we need groundbreaking sustainable technology to deal with these challenges for the planet and humanity. Do you want to create such technology and build a better future?
Being part of OnePlanet Research Center means you will be working in a thrilling enterprising environment that develops mature sustainable technology. It will be about creating impact in a new team of engineers and medical, data and food technologists. In an interdisciplinary team you will work on innovations that are immediately applied and tested in field labs with our research and industrial partners.
What you will do
We are looking for a Biomedical Researcher to expand our OnePlanet Research Center in Wageningen, Gelderland. You will investigate technologies which can be used for creating innovative health solutions. Next to research you will perform experimental field-trials with clinical partners. You will work in a multidisciplinary team of electronic engineers, bio-chemical engineers and data scientists. Other tasks include:
- 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.
- Execute experiments to verify if the chosen concept works.
- Set up and execute data collection campaigns aimed at validating sensors and algorithms.
- Create methods to evaluate and analyze the performance of sensors and algorithms.
- Develop and evaluate algorithms to estimate the physiological parameters in real-time, using signals from wearable sensors, like Accelero, Gyro, ECG, EEG, EMG, EOG, PPG, GSR, and BioZ.
- Create biomedical models to relate sensor data to physiological parameters.
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.
