Student Researcher for the upcoming project WerteRadar

Student Assistant (f/d/m)

We are looking for a student assistant (40h/month) for our WerteRadar project. The position is limited for 2 years.

Identifier: WerteRadar-SHK-Tech

Application deadline: August 10th, 2020

The call for applications is subject to approval of the project.

The research group Human-Centered Computing (HCC) is an interdisciplinary team in the field of Collaborative Computing and Human-Computer Interaction. The research focus is on the design of mixed-initiative interaction systems. In mutual-initiative interaction systems, human and computer systems act as a coupled, jointly adapting system, i.e. humans and computer systems pursue a common goal and work together. Current research focuses of the research group are in the areas of idea generation, data science and visualization. Our theory-driven research includes both an empirical and an engineering dimension.

The unit is part of the BMBF-funded interdisciplinary project WerteRadar (Values Radar), in which an interactive software for the reflective transfer of health data is designed together with media education, implemented by the HCC and evaluated at the Charité. The research focus of this unit is in the area of Reflective Technologies, which should allow individuals to weigh up their actions on different levels. This weighing process is to be realized within a three-step process (reflect, apply, verify).

For this project we are looking for a student assistant with a monthly working time of 40 hours. Your area of responsibility will be the support in the conception, creation and evaluation of an interactive software for the reflected transfer of health data.
