Job description: We are a group of pediatricians at the University of 
Washington, collaborating with clinicians in Uganda to develop a mobile health 
decision support tool for the diagnosis of pneumonia in children in 
low-resource settings in sub-Saharan Africa. Pneumonia is a major killer of 
children <5 in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our ultimate goal is 
to create a free, adaptable, locally relevant app to improve the diagnosis and 
management of childhood pneumonia and reduce childhood mortality in LMICs.

We are seeking an Android developer with an interest in coding for social good 
to build upon an existing prototype app developed by HCDE students in 2018.

Time commitment: Minimal. A few hours per week for a few weeks with 
opportunities for a bigger role and more involvement if interested.

Primary responsibilities for this position are building upon the existing 
prototype in order to add functionality in preparation for usability, 
feasibility, and acceptability trials with providers in the clinical setting in 
Uganda, occurring September 2019. After this initial work is complete, you have 
the opportunity to continue working on the project. Responsibilities would then 
include development of a backend database and logging system to manage data 
from future field testing.

We are looking for an eager student interested in user experience and app 
development for low-resource settings. There are opportunities to interface 
virtually with the end users in Uganda.

Required skills: Android development experience, UI design experience.

Desired skills: Experience with SQL or variants, familiarity with user 

Funding: We have funding to pay part time for a UW student. Inquire for details!
