We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic postdoc for a three-year position commencing October 1st, 2022 or a date by negotiation. The postdoc focuses on patient perspectives on stem cell futures.

Information on the department can be found at: https://publichealth.ku.dk/

Our research
The postdoc will be placed within reNEW – the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Medicine. reNEW is a high-profile consortium of world-leading stem cell scientists collaborating to promote effective, safe and socially robust stem cell-based therapies. There are three participating partner nodes, namely University of Copenhagen (in Denmark), Leiden University (in the Netherlands) and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (in Melbourne, Australia). This position is placed in Copenhagen, but will collaborate with the other nodes within reNEW, as part of the PREPARE cluster of activities that will combine ethical, economic, societal, and STS approaches to facilitate a socially robust delivery of stem cell outcomes to the community.

The position is locally situated at the Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies (MeST) and Medical Museion, in the Department of Public Health. MeST is a research center with approximately 35 researchers working with STS and medical humanities questions, as well as developing public engagement activities. It provides a stimulating and cross-disciplinary environment for understanding the social dynamics of research and clinical practice, drawing upon a wide range of methods.

Your job
We strive for a post doc who is excited to join an interdisciplinary humanities and social science team, in close collaboration with biomedical scientists. Your role will be to develop and carry out a project to exploring patient perspectives on stem cell research, and in particular the roles of temporality – both memories of the past and speculations and hopes about the future. We expect the postdoc to exhibit independence in developing the details of the project. You would be responsible for identifying, recruiting, and working with patient groups, with a clear attention to the ethical considerations of engaging in this field. The postdoc will collaborate with others in the PREPARE node, both drawing on their expertise to shape the project, and in return share their findings to inform the development of more quantitative and broad mapping studies. Your work will also involve method development, working with participatory research and experimenting with the use of creative techniques within a museum-based setting at Medical Museion (www.museion.ku.dk). This feeds into wider Center considerations about public engagement and the representation of research participant voices.

Essential experience and skills:

  • You have a PhD in health psychology, medical humanities or medical STS.
  • You are experienced in engaging with patients and others with lived experience of illness.
  • You will have a research trajectory documenting interest in how memories of the past, and hopes about the future, shape perspectives on biomedical research.
  • You will have conducted participatory qualitative research engaging participant memories, and have an interest in developing other participatory and creative research methods.
  • You will have documented experience with connecting literatures across disciplines and working in interdisciplinary groups, and be comfortable engaging with stem cell scientific literature.
  • You will be a confident and sensitive facilitator, with great communication skills.
  • You will have worked with museum outreach and interactive forms of engagement
