In 2019, the Topol Report described the digital future of the UK’s National Health Service: an NHS in which genomics, data-science, and artificial intelligence together inform the efficient, high-quality, patient-centred provision of medicine. The Report highlighted the fact that the realisation of this vision depends crucially upon the identification and addressing of a number of challenging ethical and social issues. This exciting position, which is based at the Ethox Centre in Oxford’s Big Data Institute offers the opportunity to join an internationally recognised ethics and social science research team engaging with these practical ethical and social challenges. Based within the Nuffield Department of Population Health, The Ethox Centre is a vibrant and intellectually exciting place to work.
The primary focus of this position will be contributing towards the development of the ethics and social science programme of an INNOVATE UK project – The Northern Pathology Imaging Cooperative (NPIC) which aims to use AI and digital imaging to improve pathology services and develop industry. Specifically, you will coordinate the ethics workpackage, which will include: undertaking research including qualitative data collection (focus groups, individual interviews), and analysis, organising public engagement activities, representing the group at external meetings, seminars and conferences and collaborate on the preparation of research publications.
You will have a relevant PhD/DPhil (or equivalent) with significant research experience and a strong record of scholarship in qualitative research and/or bioethics, plus experience with public engagement. You will possess the ability to manage your own academic research activities, proficiency with qualitative analysis software and exceptional organisation and communication skills.
The post is full-time and fixed-term until 31 January 2022.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 18 November 2019.
