Responsibilities/Job Description

Different from a pure PhD in Computer Science or Mathematics, our work is more applied as we tailor mobile technology and advanced analytics to the specific requirements of the application. We are working on building cutting-edge end-to-end prototype systems for healthcare. Your office is located in the heart of Zurich - most likely Europe's most compelling place to live. Your work will involve key players and startups in the healthcare sector. You will work with a highly motivated team of young researchers in a very pleasant atmosphere. In the past, the usual length for a PhD degree has been around three and a half years, for which funding is guaranteed. During this time, participation in conferences and voluntary exchange programs are also supported. The salary and general working conditions are internationally highly competitive and according to ETH standards.

About the Project

Our research is driven by a strong desire to conquer the great challenges that our changing society poses to the healthcare system. In the 20th century, healthcare systems specialized in acute care. In the 21st century, we now face the challenge of dealing with the specific characteristics of chronic conditions. With the mass adoption of information and communication technology, new possibilities for the prevention and treatment of diseases in the everyday life of individuals have arisen. By leveraging these new technologies and drawing upon recent advances in artificial intelligence and statistical modeling, we strive to gain deep insights.
