Postdoc positions Citizenlab eHealth

Application deadline extended!
In the 3-year research and innovation programme TOPFIT Citizenlab we will bring together citizens, health professionals, companies and researchers for developing and embedding technological innovations for care and health:
https://www.utwente.nl/nl/techmed/kennisuitwisseling/topfit-citizenlab/.

For this ambitious project the Department of Science, Technology and Policy Studies (STePS) of the University of Twente, NL is searching for 2 postdoc researchers. (For information on further postdoc positions related to the project at the University of Twente or Saxion Hogeschool see the link above. Please note that for all positions Dutch language skills are required!)



Position 1: Social Practices of eHealth Use

You will take a social practice approach to study how diverse groups of citizens integrate innovations and new forms of health information & data into their daily lives and practices - at home or at work. A further question is whether citizen’s practices create tensions and alignments with the practices of health and care professionals. How do relations and communication between citizens and health professionals change with the introduction of innovations, such as self-measuring and self-management apps? Innovations and practices studied will relate to those tested and implemented in the pilots of Citizenlab:

· Citizens & diabetes

· Healthy citizens at work (care at home & work)

· Citizen involvement in development and embedding of new technologies (Rheumatism HandScan & Diameter)

but also beyond. You will collaborate with other postdocs and partners in Citizenlab and with partners in Norway. Part of the position is related to an international project funded by the Norwegian Research Council.



Your profile

· you are fluent in Dutch (C2) and English (C2),

· collaborative and communicative, in relation to colleagues and citizens,

· you have affinity with the vision of citizen science, citizen involvement and working in a transdisciplinary team,

You will study how different forms of early involvement of citizens can contribute to responsible innovation in digital health.
