Abstract

A 2-and-a-half-year (January 2023 to March 2025) postdoctoral position inethics is available as part of the European project MIRACLE (A machine learning approach to identify patients with resected non-small-cell lung cancer with high risk of relapse, 2021-2024), which focuses on healthcare algorithms in lung cancer recurrence (see scientific summary below). This multidisciplinary project is a European collaboration between Italy, France, Germany and Spain.

Announcement

Specificities of the mission

  • This is a post-doctoral position, which means that the person must have completed or be about to complete their doctorate.
  • Starting date: from January 4, 2023
  • Geographical mobility (several trips per year)
  • Remuneration : from 2271€ gross per month

Description of the host entity/department

The Centre de Recherches en Histoires des Idées (CRHI, UPR 4318) is a multidisciplinary team founded about thirty years ago within the framework of the Department of Philosophy of the University Nice Sophia Antipolis.

The CRHI is attached to the doctoral school LSHS (Lettres, Sciences Humaines et Sociales, ED 86) of Université Côte d'Azur.

Université Côte d'Azur coordinates axis 6 of the project, which focuses on ethical issues, under the leadership of Vanessa Nurock (CRHI). More specifically, the goal is to embed in the project an "ethics by design" that operates at each stage of the project and addresses more than just its outcomes, by bringing together the ethics and policies of care to study various problems, focusing mainly on three questions:

  • What is a doctor? The potential changes in the role of doctors with the integration of algorithms in the practice of medicine
  • What is responsibility? The evolution of responsibility with these new medical practices and especially issues related to data (medical and algorithmic)
  • What is a patient? The opportunities to further integrate patients and organizations into this research project from the very beginning.

The postdoctoral student recruited for this position will have a strong background in ethics, in particular the ethics and policies of care, and an ability to fit into an international multidisciplinary team working on medical and algorithmic issues, that is, at the intersection of biomedical ethics and AI. Good interpersonal skills will also be required, to interact with patients and patient organizations. Since the project is international, in addition to French, fluency in written and oral English is essential, and knowledge of Italian or German (or both) would be a big plus. The position is based in Nice and will require regular travel to the European countries involved in the project.

This is a postdoctoral position, so the candidate must have completed or be about to complete his or her doctorate.

Duties

  • Perform research as part of the project on the ethics of healthcare algorithms and the ethics of care in the specific context of the project: bibliographic, conceptual and field work
  • Produce publications in scientific journals and co-organize scientific symposia
  • Liaise with teams and patient organizations (interviews, presentations, dissemination work)
  • Co-supervise master's students
  • Prepare reports
  • Maintain and monitor digital software

Core competencies sought

  • Proficiency in bibliographic research
  • Ability to analyze and synthesize
  • Openness to interdisciplinary collaboration and the ability to work in a team
  • Research autonomy and a desire to produce new frameworks of thinking
  • Ability to travel (several trips per year) and the capacity to work in several languages: English mandatory and if possible Italian (or the desire to learn enough to understand it a little) in addition to French.

Required degree and/or desired training(s)

The post-doctoral student recruited for this position must have a good background in ethics, particularly in the ethics and politics of care, and the ability to adapt to a multidisciplinary international team working around medical and algorithmic issues; thus at the crossroads of biomedical ethics and AI. You will also need to have good interpersonal skills to interact with patients and patient associations.
