This role is a unique opportunity to join the Responsible Technology Institute at Oxford to work on two of its projects, the multi-institution Adolescent Mental Health and Development in the Digital World, with a possible extension to include work on RoboTIPS International. We will consider full time work (divided between the two projects) or part time (50%) work on the Adolescent Mental Health project. The Adolescent Mental Health project focuses on harnessing the potential of digital technology to support adolescent mental health and wellbeing and provide a safe and supportive, digital environment to tackle the unmet need arising from mental health disorders in young people aged 10-24 years old. RoboTIPS International seeks to build a robust international community around responsible robotics.
In this role you will develop methodological protocols, co-design a training intervention programme, and carry out both qualitative and quantitative research. You will assist with stakeholder engagement activities, contribute to wider project planning, and co-ordinate activities across the project’s collaborators. You will bring a keen interest in supporting young people, and some knowledge of Responsible Innovation. As part of the Responsible Technology Institute you will engage with international networks and industrial partners, collaborating on the direction of the Institute’s research and working with colleagues to deliver its aims and objectives.
The ideal candidate will have a doctorate in Computer Science, Social Science, Artificial Intelligence or a related discipline (or is close to completion of a PhD); familiarity with Responsible Innovation; expertise interacting with professional stakeholders in research projects; and experience of qualitative and quantitative research studies.
Whilst the role is a grade 7 position for those with a submitted PhD thesis, those who are close to completion of a PhD can be appointed on Grade 6 (£30,502 - £36,386) and go up to Grade 7 upon their thesis submission. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 17 February 2023. Interviews are expected to be held in late February or in early March.
