Living city labs are an attractive way to test, create and develop metropolitan solutions that can subsequently be adopted more smoothly and swiftly by all stakeholders involved. And as a result, have a long-lasting impact on solving complex multi-stakeholder societal and metropolitan challenges on a large scale.About your role
The Centre for Urban Mental Health, together with its partners, want to co-create a project that has different target points, for example, on social cohesion, mental health problems or stress levels. You will play a central role in a variety of collaborative "city lab" projects with stakeholders relating to mental health issues in Amsterdam, including:
- Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) - as part of their Urban Living Lab team: https://www.ams-institute.org/how-we-work/living-labs/.
- The Municipal health services (GGD) - who have unique data on the effects of changes in public mental health care policies, that are to be analysed.
- and with other stakeholders we are discussing possible collaborative projects.
This position is flexible and open to candidates looking to work part-time (e.g., scientist/practitioners) or who would like to job share. If you think you meet some but not all of the criteria, we still encourage you to apply. You will be expected to set up, run, publish and disseminate the results of these city lab experiments.
