As a strategist, you are responsible for the strategy during the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. You ensure that we drive those three thousand kilometres and you know exactly where we will stop and set up the camp.

With simulations of weather data you determine an optimal race speed, taking many different factors into account.

Are you:

  • Analytical
  • Stress resistant
  • Eager to learn

Do you dare to make choices based on your own simulation program? Does data sound like music to your ears? Do you have experience with mathematical programming (or would you like to learn this)? Then we are looking for you!

If you have experience with MATLAB that is an advantage!
