Looking for students for the Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize

Are you looking for project experience? Are you interested in revolutionizing medical technology?

The Distributed Health Labs at Calit2 is assembling an interdisciplinary team to compete for the Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize. Although we currently have an amazing team of engineers, doctors, and scientists led by Dr. Albert Lin, Dr. Eliah Aronoff-Spencer, and Dr. Gert Lanckriet the task ahead is monumental and we need you help!

In order to win the XPrize, we will need to develop a innovative and friendly user experience with the ability to interact with health/medical data in (possibly new) meaningful ways! We're looking for students who ideally have some if not all of the following skills:

  • Front-end javascript/html/css design and/or implementation
  • Information design and visualization
  • Experience researching and creating user stories
  • Mocking up web & mobile user experiences
  • Running usability studies
You can find some information about what we are doing at our website here: http://dhlabs.calit2.net/
If you'd like to be a part of the Distributed Health Labs Tricorder team send an email with your CV to a5huynh@cs.ucsd.edu, and tell us a little about yourself and what you believe you can contribute. You can direct any questions you may have to that email as well.
