Who aims to develop smart algorithms that enable more sustainable agriculture

Computer Vision Researcher - Emerging Imaging for Precision Agriculture –
OnePlanet Research Center

Innovating towards a healthier future with chip and digital technology in food and health 

In 2050 we are expected to live with 10 billion people on this planet. To let all those people live and eat well, while they take care of our planet, we need groundbreaking, sustainable (technology) solutions. That’s why we, at OnePlanet Research Center, are questioning ourselves: 
What if we can measure and understand what is good for the world and for each individual person? In terms of food and agriculture, in terms of health?  
What if we can empower people towards more sustainable choices?  
What if we can make data-driven nutrition and health possible?  
What if we can manage stress to make people more resilient?  
What if we can monitor the health of plants and animals?  
What if we develop technology which does not adversely affect our environment, but which supports it?  
What if we can transform mass production of food into personalized food on demand?  
What if …?! 
 
At OnePlanet Research Center we don’t just imagine it. We work on it. We dream ánd do. We research and develop digital technology in food, agriculture and health domains achieving behavior change. Change that is needed to create a healthier future, for our planet and for humanity. 

OnePlanet Research Center 
Innovation center for chip and digital technology in food and health

OnePlanet Research Center is a multidisciplinary collaboration agreement between Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Radboud University, Radboudumc and imec. We use the latest chip and digital technology to create a society in which everyone can live a healthy life and has access to good and sufficient food. 

We initiate groundbreaking, fundamental and applied research, groundbreaking innovations and smart product development. This is only possible by using and bringing together great ideas, innovations and chip and digital technologies from different disciplines and work closely together with industry. 

We ensure that companies, education, researchers, social institutions and citizens work together. We combine specialisms from the fields of agriculture, food and health and turn dreams into feasible solutions that contribute to a more sustainable society.   

What you will do

We need you as an Computer Vision Researcher / Data Scientist to: 

  • Conduct research on emerging imaging technologies for the precision agriculture domain together with a team of hardware, software engineers as well as application specialists to create and test new concepts in the field of autonomous greenhouses, smart farming etc.
