Vacancy – IT systems architect NPEC
3 July 2019
NPEC offers an opportunity for an enthusiastic and versatile IT systems architect to help us connect various elements of the new phenotyping facility we are building to a central database and make this accessible to users throughout the country.
Data sources include high-res cameras, drones and other mobile (semi-) autonomous vehicles. The measurements will be stored in and made available to researchers through a platform called the Plant Phenomics Information System (PHIS). Sensors and PHIS need to be connected through (custom) APIs and the IT infrastructure supporting these efforts needs to be developed further. Giving data management advice and supporting researchers in using PHIS are important parts of the job.
This vacancy is open up to and including August 29, 2019
