- The research project is at KU Leuven embedded in a collaboration of the Leuven Institute for Healthcare Policy (Faculty of Medicine) and the Work, Organisational and Personnel Psychology unit (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences).
- This study aims to transfer, modify, scale up and evaluate the evidence-based Magnet model of organizational redesign of clinical health care work in 60 hospitals in 5 European countries. Magnet4Europe uses a mixed method evaluation design to determine direct and indirect individual and collective mental health outcomes and cost effectiveness.
- We aim to hire two research fellows to conduct this research under supervision of Professor Walter Sermeus, Professor Hans De Witte, Professor Wilmar Schaufeli and dr. Luk Bruyneel. KU Leuven’s main responsibilities are in coordinating the international research and conducting the research in Flemish hospitals. A combination of project work and PhD is envisaged. Both positions will include local and international project management, international travel, fieldwork, questionnaire development, data integration and analysis, and presentation of results in scientific publications
