    postdoctoral research fellowship in health informatics
    institute for ict advancement, school of ict, nelson mandela metropolitan university, south africa

    position:
    an important reason for the failure of health information technology (hit) solutions is that
    the original design does not reflect the work practices and social relations amongst its
    users. this also leads to low utilization levels of ‘‘successful’’ hits, which means that the
    solution is not utilized meaningfully. this has been shown to be inherent to the complex
    nature of the healthcare environment.
    this fellowship is focused on improving adoption and meaningful use of health information
    technology (hit) solutions, with special emphasis on home-based healthcare (hbhc).
    candidates with an information technology background, but strong interest / experience in
    health informatics are encouraged to apply. candidates with a nursing background (or
    other relevant), but a strong interest in hits, can also apply.

    research:
    the research will be conducted together with students in the health informatics research
    group within the school of ict ([color=#c98f33]www.nmmu.ac.za/sict).
    the postdoctoral researcher will be expected to contribute significantly to:
    a. the publication of research outputs from current and previous projects;
    b. daily supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate student projects;
    c. strengthening of collaboration with partners (eg healthcare providers); and
    d. conducting and leading fieldwork at a local ngo (specifically in the hbhc context).

    requirements:
    a ph.d. information technology / nursing informatics / medical informatics or other
    relevant field, obtained within the past five years, with a strong background and/or interest
    in health information technologies (hits).

    applications:
    a covering letter and curriculum vitae, including all research outputs and experience
    should be sent to prof dalenca pottas in electronic format at e-mail:
