Vacancy PhD researcher: Crowdsourcing to foster responsible research an innovation and participatory research 1.0 fte. Deadline of application: March 1, 2021.
JOINUS4HEALTH is a Horizon2020 project funded by the European commission which aims to contribute to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) by using crowdsourcing as a way to broaden the scope of cohort studies research. We are looking for a candidate who is interested in combining hands-on contributions to the tasks and objectives of the project with conceptual and theoretical reflections on participatory research and deliberative democracy. Via academic papers, the work will result in a PhD thesis, for which supervision and training will be provided.
The project aims to promoting citizen science and public engagement as an inherent part of research methodologies. Researchers are encouraged to actively engage citizens and other societal actors in mutual learning dialogues during the design of their analyses and interpretation of results. This may address methodological challenges such as biases in participation and foster engagement and uptake. The consortium includes three institutions with a strong track record on cohort studies (including Erasmus Medical Centre) while the contribution of ESPhil will focus on conceptual, methodological and normative challenges.

The faculty has an international orientation and strong connections with universities abroad. Our research programs are internationally leading in our field. ESPhil enables students to become critical thinkers and engaged scholars by developing their academic skills and encouraging them to practice philosophy in multiple societal settings Our research addresses for collaborative themes: The making of Modernity; Subjectivity and its discontents; Philosophy of economics; The structure of science and reality.
