UiT the Arctic University of Norway is massively extending its efforts in education and research in the field of health technology. This effort is a follow-up to the governmental strategic plan for Research and higher education in Norway, within the fields of “new technologies”, “digitalisation” and “health”. Starting with fall semester 2018, two 5-year studies will educate masters of technology with a specialization in health technology. The programs are specializations within the integrated master programs in computer science, and in applied physics and mathematics.
This strategic initiative builds on a long track record of collaboration between the Faculty of Science and Technology, the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the University Hospital of North Norway. One of the highlights in this long-term collaboration was the Tromsø Telemedicine Laboratory (TTL, 2007-2014) as one of the first Centers for Research Based Innovation (SFI) at UiT, with these three stakeholders among the consortium members.
Based on this expertise, we wish to recruit four new professors/associate professors with the ambition to advance the field of health technology at UiT to the highest international level. We announce four positions in computer science, and one position in machine learning.
The fields of expertise for the announced positions provide key technologies required to shape future health care and healthy living, by enabling applications spanning from smart homes and assisted living based on a huge variety of sensors, via diagnostic support systems and big data analytics, to highly specialized surgical interventions using robotics and augmented reality.
