The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH)

The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) is a research and specialist organization that promotes occupational health and safety and the well-being of workers. It is an independent institution under public law, functioning under the administrative sector of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. FIOH has six regional offices, and its headquarters are in Helsinki. The Brain Work Research Centre (BWRC) at FIOH studies how brain and senses function and how this is influenced by human and work related factors. One of the focus areas of the BWRC is the study of human information processing in the modern and future ICT environments.

Job description Your task is to lead research on computational data analysis and to devise new computational methods and build expertise that benefit the research and services for the needs of the future work life. You will advance the exploitation of the heterogenous data sets that have been and are being collected at the institute, including data sets related to physiology, health, cognition, work environment, and spanning measurements from laboratories to work places. You will be responsible for national and international research collaboration in the topic of the position. You will apply for funding, lead research projects as well as supervise students and other more junior staff members. You may participate to education and teaching within area of your expertise.
