The VHH is scheduled for completion in 2020 - in order to meet the timeframe, this core team of researchers is being assembled and located at the Monash Clayton campus to start working with stakeholders to identify challenges to inform innovation in the meantime. This will allow the teams involved to learn into space, understand challenges, issues, and potential while starting the iterative innovation cycle and proof points of success.

The Research Fellow is to be appointed to the Software Engineering group at the Faculty of IT and supervised by Dr Li Li and Professor John Grundy. The Software Engineering group is a leading group in the Asia Pacific region, working on developing innovative methods and technologies that enable the construction of complex software systems in an effective way, with an emphasis on Software Engineering for social good.

The Research Fellow will be researching and creating novel prototype software to support the high-level objectives of the clinical staff in remote care contexts.

The successful candidate will have a doctoral qualification in the relevant discipline area, and strong programming skills in Python, Java or other modern programming languages.
