This project is a 4 year NWO-MVI funded project and involves a public-private consortium of healthcare companies, clinicians, a law firm, a patient organisation and scientists.
While expectations on the use of biomarker testing for early diagnostics, patient stratification and more personalised therapies are high and rising, not much is known yet about how healthcare professionals and patients use and value biomarker testing in ‘real life’ medical practices, and which ethical, legal and societal issues are emerging, regarding ,for example, biobank governance, liability and patient involvement.
Building upon a socio-constructivist approach to science and technology development, and empirical ethics, and using qualitative empirical research methods, this project aims to establish a socially robust use of biomarker technology. It aims to do so in the broader context of increasing datafication and use of algorithms in healthcare.
This project employs two postdocs: one with a focus on social science, primarily focusing on biomarker technology in oncology, and the other with a focus on empirical ethics, primarily focusing on biomarker technology in psychiatry. This vacancy concerns the first postion: leading the social science part of this project. The second position will be posted at a later stage.
The Faculty of Science is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and as such encourages applications from women and minorities.
