The Graduate School at Arts, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, in collaboration with the Velux Foundation, invites applications for a fully-funded PhD scholarship/fellowship in Surveillance and user involvement in the healthcare sector provided the necessary funding is available.

The PhD scholarship/fellowship will be financed by the 2 parties.

The PhD scholarship/fellowship is advertised within the field of Surveillance and user involvement in the healthcare sector.

The purpose of the PhD project is to develop a framework for creative solutions to the practical challenges and ethical dilemmas which arise with the introduction of surveillance technologies to manage the issue of elderly with dementia walking away from their homes. The project involves planning, execution and evaluation of a number of user-involving design processes such as workshops and tests. The PhD project thus engages with central issues in the use and development of technologies and workflows to manage elderly with dementia’s wandering behavior.

Qualified applicants should have competencies in qualitative methods and knowledge about humanistic aspects of the use of ICT. It is also a requirement that the applicant can understand Danish. Relevant educational backgrounds include information studies, digital design, anthropology or similar.

The PhD scholarship is part of a larger research project, LIVSTEGN, which is a collaboration between Aarhus University, Aarhus Municipality and VIVE (The Danish Center for Social Science Research). The PhD Candidate will work closely together with senior researchers and practitioners while also independently developing the PhD project from own research interests and ideas.
