You will perform research in the HCI and eHealth domain that is aligned with the H2020 project CoroPrevention. From the HCI perspective, the research has a focus on personalization in mHealth solutions for cardiac patients, motivation, persuasion and shared decision making involving different stakeholders in the rehabilitation process. Independently as well as in team, you will identify research problems in these areas, design and develop creative solutions (e.g. advanced software prototypes of mHealth applications), evaluate these from a user experience perspective and contribute to the evaluation of their medical effect.
During the PhD, you will follow the doctoral program in the Doctoral School of Sciences and Technology.
You will also be involved in a limited number of teaching assignments in the UHasselt bachelor and master in computer science.
You will be appointed and paid as PhD student.
The successful candidate will receive a scholarship for a period of 2 years, which is extended with another period of 2 years after a positive midterm review (total duration is thus 4 years). The envisaged starting date of the scholarship is February 1 2020.
You can only apply online up to and including 15 December 2019.
The selection procedure consists of a preselection based on application file and an interview.
Candidates are encouraged to contact prof. dr. Karin Coninx or dr. Gustavo Rovelo Ruiz stating their interest for this position and to request more information regarding HCI research activities in EDM within the eHealth subdomain.
