In the framework of an existing collaboration between the LEAT (Electronics, Antennas and Telecommunications Laboratory) and the MATOs biology research team (UMR E4320 TIRO-MATOs, University Côte d'Azur / CEA), a device has been developed for the personalized monitoring of moving samples in a restricted space, thanks to a radio frequency identification tag (RFID UHF) that communicates with an external reader (patent FR3094162),
The recruited engineer will be in charge of integrating, developing and realizing a functional prototype at a pre-industrial level. He/she will also be in charge of carrying out the system's functional and performance testing activities.
As an European project has been submitted on this same theme, a contract extension for an addional period of 2 years may be considered.
The engineer will work with the team that developed the system, which is composed of LEAT's teaching-researchers as well as a CNRS researcher plus a technician from the MATOs team. For the first part, the position will be located at the LEAT (Sophia Antipolis Campus) and for the second part, at the School of Medicine (Nice) for performing experiments and data acquisition.
The system to be further developed will have to :
- Acquire data from RFID chips
- Performing the measurements
- Store and display relevant data
This system consists of an antenna system associated with RFID chips, a commercial Arduino module, an interrogation system linked to a host computer, a database and a human-machine interface. The development will include extending the operation of the current system to 5 units.
He/She will also complete the development of the software and the human-machine interface (HMI) to control and monitor the system from a local or remote computer.
He/She will carry out the integration of this electronics: assembly of the modules, cabling.
He/She will carry out the acquisition, transfer and processing of data in real conditions
- Extensive knowledge of analog and digital electronics and instrumentation
- General knowledge of hardware architectures around programmable components
- Mastering of microcontroller programming languages (C language and Visual Studio)
- Knowledge of programmable components
- Writing skills
- Fluency in English (spoken and written)
- Sense of initiative, autonomy and reporting
- Sense of interdisciplinary teamwork
The LEAT (Laboratory of Electronics, Antennas and Telecommunications) is a joint research unit between the University Côte d'Azur (UCA) and the CNRS UMR 7248. It is located within the SophiaTech Campus in Sophia Antipolis (Alpes-Maritimes), which is a training and research center dedicated to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Its research activities concern the fields of telecommunications, radar, e-health, security and intelligent buildings. They are organized into three themes: CMA (Antenna Design and Modeling), EDGE (Edge Computing and Digital Electronic) and ISA (Microwave Imaging and Antenna Systems). The unit has about 70 staff members, including about 30 permanent members (teacher-researchers, researchers, administrative and technical staff) and about 40 non-permanent members (PhD students, post-doctoral students, engineers and trainees).
The TIRO-MATOs laboratory is a joint research unit in fundamental and translational biology under the supervision of the University Côte d'Azur (UMR E4320) and the CEA (Institut des Sciences du Vivant). Located within the School of Medicine of Nice on the Pasteur Campus, the laboratory is composed of two teams : TIRO (Transporteurs en Imagerie et Radiothérapie en Oncologie) and MATOs (Mécanismes biologiques des Altérations du Tissu Osseux). The MATOs team is composed of about ten people, six of whom have permanent positions (CNRS and INSERM researchers and UCA-CHU teaching-researchers).
The person recruited will be placed under the hierarchical supervision of the project leaders.
