Every year there is a brand new TU/e Sensing Team that represents the TU/e at the SensUs competition. For the next team we need bachelor and master students to form a multidisciplinary team. Students with knowledge in the field of chemistry or biochemistry are very useful to help with assay development and chemical optimization. We also need people who have a background in physics to help with the physical principles of biosensing. Electrical engineering and programming subjects are important too, like signal processing and the translating of the binding of a molecule to a usable, measurable signal. Moreover, throughout the process we have to keep the end-user in mind: the patient. This requires design choices for user-friendliness, portability and cost, suitable for industrial design students. Lastly, we constantly have to keep in touch with the outside world, requiring public relation work and drawing in sponsors.
T.E.S.T. 2019 will be formed in October 2018 and will operate until September 2019, which is when the SensUs competition will take place. If you are up to an amazing challenge and want to gain new skills and knowledge, join T.E.S.T. 2019! To apply for T.E.S.T. 2019, please send your CV and a motivation letter which explains why you want to join the team (both in English) to firstname.lastname@example.org before Oktober 21. Your CV should have a standard lay-out and consist of relevant experiences for T.E.S.T. If you have any questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
Participating in the SensUs competition is rewarded as a extracurricular course. Read all the details here.
