We are hiring: Principal Investigator in Digital Health Technology (m/f/d)
We are looking for a highly motivated
Principal Investigator in Digital Health Technology (m/f/d)
The vision of our international interdisciplinary research team at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Digital Health and Prevention in Salzburg, Austria, is to provide society with user friendly, evidence based digital support tools that facilitate healthy lifestyle changes in order to prevent or successfully treat chronic diseases. In close collaboration with our partners Paris-Lodron University Salzburg (Dept. of Mathematics, Dept. of Human Computer Interaction), University of Applied Sciences, Salzburg Research and the Austrian Institute of Technology, and University Hospital Salzburg, initial efforts are put on increasing physical activity, either through focused exercise training or through increased mild to moderate activities of daily living (extended walking, cycling, climbing stairs instead of using elevators), which is key in preventing a range of physical and mental illnesses. Current solutions on the market often lack a robust scientific evidence base, are too specialized or are difficult to use for certain user groups, e.g., elderly patients in cardiovascular rehabilitation.
We are looking for a colleague who shares our enthusiasm for versatile digital support solutions that benefit healthy lifestyles and improve quality of life; and who is passionate about shaping and developing novel research and innovation in digital technologies for healthy behavior change.
