modelling, at all integration levels.
The postdoc position is part of theme two: integrated and autonomous sensor platforms.
We will test existing gastrointestinal micro-capsule technologies in vivo within the porcine small intestine lumen. Two micro-capsule technologies will be used: a sampling capsule from Dupont-BioME to sample the microbiome and a sensing capsule from OnePlanet that remotely transmits data in real-time. The microbiome composition will be used to relate to the Complex tissue intestinal work, and the sensory data from the small intestine will be related to the work of the Physiological health monitoring sensor group.Your tasks will be:
- to test and improve the micro-capsule technologies, such as reducing size for use in other animals, extending its sensing capabilities, and liaise and connect with the other sensing technologies being developed by the “sensor” teams and to design and execute the necessary in vivo and ex vivo animal experiments in close collaboration with involved scientists from ASG.
- to disseminate results via publications and conference presentations.
- to interact constructively with the developers of the micro-capsule technologies and the Wageningen research team.
