- Are you eager to work on technologies to improve personalized health care?
- Are you passionate about introducing optical and terahertz technologies for health monitoring?
- Are you curious about how to engage participants (cancer and obesity) with innovative, non-obtrusive monitoring and tailored intervention technology?
You are invited to join our team on as part of the recently started RECENTRE 4TU program. In RECENTRE, we work with patients and citizens to empower people to play a leading role in their lifestyle and health within their own environment. By holistic monitoring of vulnerable populations in their home and tailored recommendations, we relocate care from primary/secondary care and prevent disease development or worsening, resulting in timely intervention, higher quality of life and lower healthcare costs.Job Description
Your PhD research will contribute to improve personalized health care by leveraging on existing state-of-the-art sensing techniques, in combination with introducing emerging deep-tech sensing approaches, resulting in improvements in scale, cost, and performance. Your research will comprise several stages, starting by, in collaboration with RECENTRE partners, map how current health monitoring techniques support developing dynamic risk profiles based on multivariate data for the added risk of lifestyle on health outcomes over time. Secondly, based on the previous findings and by exploring emerging sensing techniques such as optical and terahertz imaging and sensing technologies, conceive, and create integrated smart sensor systems for monitoring high-risk populations in daily life. Finally, your research will feed-back efforts in the RECENTRE consortium to create demonstrations and virtual reality environments, with different types of sensing techniques, designed for high patient engagement.What's in it for you?
- You will be able to join a large national consortium, thereby expanding your network.
- Excellent opportunities for personal development with amongst others personal coaching and training opportunities.
- Your findings will directly contribute to enhancing (future) patient care.
