Call for PhD Application in Cultural Approaches to Diagnostic Technologies
in East Asia Fellowship

Date: 2013-08-31
Date Submitted: 2013-06-04
Announcement ID: 204288

Research area: Science and Technology Studies / History of Health / Medical
Anthropology / Medical Sociology

Applications are invited for a three-year, full-time, funded PhD position
in Cultural Approaches to Diagnostic Technologies in East Asia in the
Centre for the Humanities and Medicine (CHM) at The University of Hong Kong.

This position has developed out of a collaborative research initiative
between CHM and the International Diagnostics Centre (IDC) at the London
School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on diagnostics for communicable
disease. Recent research has demonstrated the importance of dynamic
contextual processes and environmental factors in determining how
individuals, populations, and health systems respond to novel technologies
and disease control interventions. However, the role of socio-cultural
factors is often unacknowledged in technology development, implementation,
and assessments, with consequences for the uptake and efficacy of
healthcare delivery and disease control in the population. The
collaboration between CHM and IDC aims to promote cross-disciplinary
research into diagnostic technologies, foregrounding the significance of
socio-cultural contexts in the development, successful integration, and
sustainable implementation of diagnostic technologies for infectious
diseases in East Asia.

The PhD candidate should have a Masters degree (with merit or distinction)
or equivalent, preferably with a background in Science and Technology
Studies, History of Medicine and Health, Anthropology, or Sociology. The
PhD is for 36 months and the candidate is expected to register not later
than January 1, 2014.

Applications must be submitted via the standard on-line application process
for HKU. For further information on research postgraduate education at Hong
Kong University, application procedure and financial assistance, see
**. Full-time PhD students who hold a first degree with second-class honors
first division (or equivalent) or above are normally considered eligible to
receive a Postgraduate Studentship during the normative study period.
Candidates' results in Master's degrees may also be considered. The basic
level of studentship is currently HK$13,600 (US$1,740) per month (subject
to revision). Candidates may also apply for other financial awards. The
Hong Kong PhD Fellowship (HKPF) provides each awardee with a monthly
studentship of HK$20,000 and a conference and research related travel
allowance of HK$10,000 per year for a period up to three years.

The deadline for application is 31 August 2013. Applicants who have applied
for the HKPF will be automatically considered for the award of University
Postgraduate Fellowships (UPF) of HK$70,000 in addition to the Postgraduate
Studentships. Information on awards and financial assistance may be found
