Project Developer on Health Technology

The Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science and the Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging are expanding their thematic research group on Health Technology for Active Ageing and Self-Management of Health with a full time position as Project Developer for three years, with possibility of renewal.

NTNUs thematic research group on Health Technology for Active Ageing and Self-Management of Health focuses on developing and applying mobile health (mHealth) solutions, ICT-based health (eHealth) technologies, game-based solutions, and welfare technologies in the support of healthy ageing and prevention of functional decline. The group is coordinating several EU-projects and actively participates in both nationally and internationally funded research projects.

In order to extend the group’s current project portfolio, we are looking for a Project Developer who will contribute to: developing a long-term vision and roadmap for Health Technology for Active Ageing and Self-Management of Health; the group’s EU positioning and research collaboration; and all stages of research proposal development. The successful applicant will work as part of a large multidisciplinary team, with responsibility to organize the focus area, organize workshops with partners in Norway and abroad to increase the group’s capacity and competency, and take an active role in the development of national and EU frameworks for Health Technology for Active Ageing and Self-Management of Health.

Knowledge of the H2020 programme and experience with EU applications is an advantage, as is experience in research on active ageing and self-management of health supported by technology. Excellent communication skills in English, both oral and written, are a pre-requisite. Emphasis will be placed on communicating and cooperating well with professionals from different communities.
