After my graduation I started working as a researcher at the Professor Dr. G.A. Lindeboom Institute. This is a scientific study center that tries to influence decisions about ethical issues on healthcare and politics from the Christian philosophy.
Further the Professor Dr. G.A. Lindeboom Institute supports doctors, nurses and health care in ethical and philosophical questions in care. The goal of the institute is to promote and maintain biblical values and standards in healthcare.
I work individually on small projects and in a group on larger projects. I experience the various projects and research from the beginning. I make a proposal with the plan of action and the budget. I do also research at supervision of a senior researcher. For some projects I am project manager, which means I have to keep an eye on the quality and the overview of planning, costs and information (internal and external).
For my work I need skills in research, organization, project management and didactics. To grow in this business, I need to have a promotion. There are junior and senior researchers, for the senior researchers you have to be promoted.
The best thing about my work is the process of a research idea to a finished product, with all the steps needed beforehand, such as grant applications, identifying stakeholders, selecting methods and selecting respondents.
