We are recruiting 3 postdoctoral appointments to an exciting 4-year Wellcome Trust-supported Collaborative Project in the Medical Humanities, People Like You, awarded to Professors Sophie Day (Goldsmiths, Anthropology), Celia Lury (Warwick University, Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies) and Helen Ward (Imperial College London, School of Public Health). We aim to establish the cultural significance of new methods for specifying and portraying people precisely across a range of settings. We will develop an interdisciplinary figural analysis in collaboration with three creative practitioners (poetry, portraiture and digital media) to put the ‘person’ back into personalisation and relate people to the data collected from them and on their behalf.
The post holders will focus on:
(1) Goldsmiths: personalised medicine and health care – apply here
(2) Imperial College: personalisation in data science – apply here
(3) Warwick: selected personalising practices in digital culture – apply here
Application deadline: 02 October 2017.
