PhD position: AwareShoe, intelligent shoeware for diabetic patients
(Vacancy nr. 23.96.06)

Research area:
The main goal of AwareShoe is to develop methods and protocols for
generating automated
persuasive messages that must entice patients to adhere to a strict
exercise scheme, taking profit
from rich but difficult to interpret telemetric data about the behavior of
individual patients, in
combination with information on the personality of the patients.

In this PhD project we will develop the technology that is needed to
interpret the signals generated by the
sensors built into the shoes that the outpatients will wear. In addition
to a reliable and operational
surveillance system this project will also deliver best practice
guidelines for effectively developing
similar mobile health surveillance systems in other domains than diabetes.
In addition, we will
investigate issues related to scalability and the quality-of-service of
telemetric health monitoring

A successful candidate must have a strong background in informatics,
applied mathematics, signal processing or pattern recognition. Experience
in developing and training Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs) is an
advantage. Candidates must be already authorized to work in the EU.

Informal enquiries should be made to prof. dr L.Boves (L.Boves at let.ru.nl)

Duration of contract: 3.5 years from 1st January 2007.

Formal applications with a detailed CV and the names of at least two
references should be sent to the personnel department referring to vacancy
number 23.96.06, preferably by e-mail.
