TU/e - Student assistant for electronically actuated soft matter

 We have a vacancy available for a student assistant with a background in EE, in the field of advanced materials for soft robotic applications at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands

Research background
Soft robotics is a relatively new subfield of robotics that deals with constructing robotic functions from compliant materials. Soft technologies and integrated soft systems can revolutionize the use of robotic devices, for instance in applications where elastic versatility and safe human/machine interactions are needed. It is predicted, and certainly has the potential, to lead to the development of radically new generations of machines. The examples are numerous. In the medical world, they will increasingly assist surgery, in-vivo therapeutic treatments or contribute to the rehabilitation of disabilities by exoskeletons. Soft robotic functions have the perspective to enhance the communication between man and machine or between machines mutually. We foresee that we can make materials that can feel, sense, behave and act as human skins, but with enhanced sensitivity and accuracy. They can be used as stand-alone and autonomous devices, but also be applied as coating or integrated with electronics or even with biological material to perform functions not accessible otherwise. And as a long-term perspective one can foresee the development of evolutionary self-developing soft robotics following nature’s approach to intelligent soft machines.

Projects description

You will be joining a multidisciplinary research group, where we develop responsive materials that address the advancing needs in man-machine communication, specialized medicine and miniaturized mechanics. More information can be found at www.danqingliu.nl.

A key aspect of our projects is to translate molecular effects to macroscopic phenomena which, in turn translate into (robotic) devices, and especially haptic applications. You will join a team where you will be responsible for developing electrical circuits to address material actuation!

Profile
We are looking for talented, motivated and student assistant who meet the following requirements:
  • Skills in electric engineering. 
  • Basic experience with programming is much appreciated.
  • Prior knowledge in soft matters, responsive materials and experience in microscopic techniques and device fabrication/ characterization are appreciated.
  • Ability to independently work within a dynamic team and multidisciplinary research environment.
  • Fluent in spoken and written English.

Salary is based on the experience of the students.

TU/e - TA Intro Telecommunications 5ETA0

Job Summary:
The Course Introduction to Telecommunications (5ETA0) has been updated in recent years to include lab assignments to cover some of the topics discussed in the course (you have most likely have already experienced these labs as a student). As of last year and due to Covid restrictions we have virtualized these labs. While working on the virtual labs students encounter often issues with the execution of the assignments which require interventions by the course TAs. The TAs hired for this vacancy (two are required) will make themselves familiar with the 3 course lab assignments and support students during weeks 3/5 and 7 of the quarter in successfully completing the labs (which are a compulsory element in the course).
 
Job Tasks:
 
The selected SA will be required to be available (most likely via Discord) to answer student questions on weeks 3,5 and 7 of the quarter. For the lab in week 7 there is also the need to maintain the physical lab set-up which will be made accessible to students to run the experiment/lab assignment. The total effort is hence not equally spread over the two months but is concentrated on these weeks. It is estimated that on the weeks when the labs are scheduled that effort will be significant (10-15 hours) while in other weeks the effort will be minimal.
 
Skills
 
the required skills include:
 
  1. Successful completion of the 5ETA0 course (preferably also experiencing the virtual labs in 2020/2021)
  2. Knowledge of web-based virtual environment

TU/e - TA 5G Educational Testbed Infrastructure

Job Summary
One of the main responsibilities of TU/e is to move expertise from research to education and prepare future engineers with relevant skills. 5G network infrastructure is now being deployed across various countries. Yet, many aspects of 5G are yet to appear. With this project, the student will contribute to the integration and deployment of a 5G system in EE, TU/e to be used for education purposes. The task involves software and hardware integration, namely open source 4G/5G software stack over low-spec software defined radios.

Job Tasks
The goal of the project is a 4G/5G Mobile Network educational platform configurable, expandable and testable. Any part of the software stack should provide an interface for students to parameterize, modify and test. To this end, recent open-source software (e.g. https://www.openairinterface.org/) provide the basis for such software stack running over off-the-shelf software defined radios. 

The main tasks of the students working on this project are:

-        Integration of OpenAir Interface over Lime SDR platforms, both for user equipment and e-NodeB sides.
-        Validation and detection of limits of software stack and SDRs.
-        Identification of configurable parts of the software stack.
-        Design and implementation of a software interface (e.g. API, web services etc) to allow easy parameterization / modification of the stack.
-        Definition of sample practice exercises for bachelor and master students.
-        Documentation and tutorials.

Skills
The intention is to be beneficial for students. Most of the knowledge listed below is required or the willing to learn a lot should be strong.

-        Basic knowledge on communications esp. L1 and L2 protocols
-        Basic knowledge on radio transmissions and signal processing.
-        C/C++ programming esp. networking and threading.
-        Python and web-services (good to have)

 

Procedure
The project can immediately start and ends in June 2023. Multiple students will contribute to this project. Each student should work for a minimum of 1 working day per week. As a student assistant, EuFlex will take care of the compensation of the work. 

Are you interested, contact dr. George Exarchakos.

TU/e - 5EPB0 - EM2 SLT Tutor

For the Electromagnetics II course (2022-2023, Q4) we are looking for tutors for the student-led tutorials. (If you have experienced them yourselves, you can skip to the next part 😊) During these student-led tutorials, students are asked to prepare a set of exercises. On Canvas, students are asked to tick the exercises which they have prepared, or at least made a serious attempt on. During the SLT, students are then randomly selected to present their work.

Your task as TA is to be a moderator as it is a STUDENT-led tutorial. The students should be in charge and by discussions amongst the students, they should eventually all understand all exercises. You are there to guide and motivate the students in the right direction. It should therefore be important that you have also prepared the SLT’s. These SLT’s will take place every week on Tuesday morning.

As an EMII TA, you’ll be responsible for leading the practice hours for a small group of approximately 20-25 students.

The main tasks involve:

-       Follow a preliminary training about the novel approach that is to be implemented. This training is planned for Q1 and/or Q2.
-       Prepare and study a set of exercises that the students need to solve each week.
-       Lead the practice hours according to the novel methodology. This task will take two (academic) hours per week in Q4.

The TA will be hired for a total of 40 hours, consisting of 2 weekly hours of SLT and 3 hours of preparation including some additional hours for a training and workshop before the start of the course. 

So, if you feel EMII should become more spot-on, or if you feel you’d like to help others go through this subject and enjoy it, or you would like to contribute to the ever-increasing quality of education at our faculty, please send contact information and/or questions to:
