Research Assistant/Fellow position available to work on HCI with digital sexual services - now closed

Selected sexual health services, including partner notification for chlamydia, are increasingly being delivered online. There are both benefits and challenges of making this transition to online delivery (for providers and service users alike), and the design of the digital interaction is central to the quality of the user experience. We are seeking to appoint a Research Assistant/Fellow with experience of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) to identify core user experiences and needs for future service users and to prototype and test possible interaction designs, building on prior work. The post is available for 9-months initially (or equivalent at a minimum of 0.8fte), and is available immediately.
The post offers a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to join UCL Interaction Centre, working with other groups across UCL and nationally, to contribute to the development of cutting-edge research into digital sexual health (eSexual Health).

The main purpose of the role is to investigate user requirements and prototype novel interactive designs on a newly awarded NIHR funded Grant, "Improving care for people with sexually transmitted infections in a digital NHS". The post holder will work under the supervision of Prof Ann Blandford, working closely with Dr Jo Gibbs and the broader project team. Applicants must have obtained a PhD or an MSc in a relevant subject (e.g., Human-Computer Interaction or Digital Health), or have equivalent experience.They should also have strong qualitative and prototyping skills. Please see the UCL advert (Ref. 1885662) for more information and how to apply. The deadline for applications is Mon 18th July and interviews are planned for Tues 26th July.
