Internship - Program a DMA control system - Summer 2018

Help us build a control system for a differential mobility analyser (DMA)

Duration:  ±2 months full-time 

Remuneration: 450 eur/month 

Where: VSPARTICLE, YESDELFT Molengraaffsingel 10  

Education: HBO/WO computer science / embedded electronics student, experience with C++ and embedded systems

 

Description: 

VSPARTICLE enables acceleration in the research of nanomaterials for applications, by providing user-friendly tools to produce nanoparticles. One of the tools we frequently use is a differential mobility analyser (DMA), a device that allows for selection & filtering of nanoparticles. This requires a precise control system to regulate flow and voltage for the DMA. Are you up for a challenging assignment to help us design an embedded control system that will be part of our effort to bring lab data into the cloud? You'll work with our software development and embedded electronics colleagues and have a chance to learn about what it's like to work in a small multidisciplinary team.

Are you up for the challenge?

Internship - Database for experimental/lab data

Help build a lab data management solution

Duration:  ± 2 months full-time 

Remuneration: 450 eur/month 

Where: VSPARTICLE, YESDELFT Molengraaffsingel 10  

Education: HBO/WO computer science student, experience with databases preferable NOSQL 

 

Description: 

Our company began as a start-up where everyone knows exactly what the rest is doing. The last couple of months our company has grown tremendously. More data is gathered and shared, providing input for our systems & customers. With the increased complexity of our setups and increase in data volume, our need for a system to help find and share information has increased. To tackle this problem, we need you!  

We offer the possibility to build an application to store and retrieve experiment data from different sources and be part of larger, multidisciplinary project team. The two month project entails mapping the data flow and designing/building an application with a database. You will be responsible for the design and integration of chosen software components with our systems.  

Are you interested to work with a start-up and help change the world?

Internship - Nanomaterial property database

Create interactive application for our website

Duration:  ±2 months full-time 

Remuneration: 450 eur/month 

Where: VSPARTICLE, YESDELFT Molengraaffsingel 10  

Education: HBO/WO computer science student, experience with web development, experience with Typo3 extensions is a plus

 

Description: 

The coolest thing about nanoparticles is that the properties change with size, creating an infinite amount of new materials in virtually every application field. VSPARTICLE has created an easier and unique way of creating these nanoparticles, speeding up the trial-and-error process of finding the nanoparticles with the right properties. In addition, we're now building a database of material properties and device settings to speed this process up further. This is where you come into the picture. We need you to build an interactive application on our website, where customers can access the information we've gathered to help them find the next breakthrough in nanotechnology. 

So jump on the bandwagon, and contact us!
