Scientific Programmer (1,0 fte)
Utrecht University's Applied Data Science Lab is looking for a scientific programmer to help extend and/or redesign/reimplement the STRIP Assistant platform for implementation into the daily practices of general physicians in the Utrecht region. The STRIPA Implementation (STRIMP) project is being funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). STRIMP can be understood as a spin-off of the Horizon2020 project OPERAM which is currently deploying STRIPA as the intervention instrument in a multi-centre multi-lingual RCT in secondary care. OPTICA is a Swiss-funded project where STRIPA is evaluated in another RCT in primary care. STRIMP is similar to OPTICA but more focused on preparing its scalable deployment throughout primary care. Thus, through this position you may become a part of its spin-off and be joining a highly anticipated Dutch startup.
STRIPA's backend is currently made up of Drools, Tomcat, MySQL, Talend, and more. The frontend is HTML5-based. In the beginning you will most likely work on the backend, where you will integrate STRIPA with GPIS-en through a to be refined REST API-based protocol, for example. You are also responsible for the ETL procedures that are required to transform the widely available medical knowledge into STRIPA's data model. Afterwards, you will focus on improving the STRIPA experience through its frontend. Throughout the project you will handle STRIPA support as well. Finally, you need to be Java and HTML literate. Experience with C++ is a plus as we are considering it for our NextGen version. We are, therefore, looking for a creative mind with a proactive and positive attitude, who gets excited by the possibility to become a core member of an eHealth startup.
You will be stationed in the Applied Data Science Lab within the Software Systems group of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences at Utrecht University, but we are open to the 'New Way of Working'. Check out the many scientific publications on STRIPA for more information. The STRIMP project aims to start in November 2017.
