The Trinity Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation (TCPHI) at the School of Nursing and Midwifery along with the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) ADAPT Centre at Trinity College Dublin are pleased to announce 3 new fully funded PhD Scholarships (covering the fields of psychology/ health psychology/ behaviour science, human computer interaction and computer science) as part of a four-year (2020-2024) Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN).

The aim of visuAAL is to bridge the knowledge gap between users’ requirements and the appropriate and secure use of video-based AAL technologies to deliver effective and supportive care to older adults managing their health and wellbeing. To help achieve this the ITN brings together 5 beneficiaries and 14 partner organisations from Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom. 

VisuAAL will provide a transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral combination of training, non-academic placements, courses and workshops on scientific and complementary skills to 15 high achieving Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) as part of their PhD programme. Three of these positions will be based at Trinity College Dublin. These newly hired ESRs will contribute through their individual research projects to fulfil visuAAL's aims.

If you are interested in joining the team at Trinity College Dublin please see scholarship research projects 7,8 and 9 here: https://www.visuaal-itn.eu/esr-vacancies .
