ETH Zurich is one of the leading universities of the world with a strong focus on science and engineering. In 2010 it established the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC) in collaboration with the National Research Foundation (NRF) to do interdisciplinary research on pressing problems.
In collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Duke - NUS, the National Health Group (NHG), National University Health System (NUHS), and SingHealth, SEC is undertaking a research program on "Future Health Technologies FHT". It addresses some immanent health challenges by developing a future-oriented Mobile Digital Health Concept that tackles the increase in patients suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity and stroke, as a consequence of a rapidly ageing population with mobile digital technologies, covering the value chain from acute care to patient's private homes. Within this framework we are announcing the following job opening.
FHT's Mobile Health Interventions module investigates how mobile chatbot technology can be leveraged to assist individuals in preventing diabetes and depression from a public health perspective. For this purpose, we will further develop the award-winning open-source, Apache 2 licensed, software platform MobileCoach (www.mobile-coach.eu). MobileCoach will be our primary software platform for the development of smartphone-based and conversational agent (chatbot) delivered digital health interventions (DHIs) and ecological momentary assessments (EMAs). Elena+ (www.elena.plus) or BLV’s MySwissFoodPyramid are only two examples of many MobileCoach-based interventions. Moreover, technology management and medical students use MobileCoach in our Digital Health Project lectures in Switzerland. The core of MobileCoach is implemented as a Java web application and allows intervention authors to set up the logic and content of DHIs and EMAs. Content can be delivered either via SMS, email or iOS / Android apps (written in ReactNative), which are used by individuals receiving an intervention. Also, health professionals can use the web-based MobileCoach cockpit (written in React) to monitor their patients and to interact with them via a text-based chat channel.
To strengthen our MobileCoach activities at SEC and, therefore, to increase our scientific and societal impact, we are looking for a software developer who is interested in supporting us in the following tasks:
