We are recruiting to 2 PhD studentships at the UCL Interaction Centre!

The first of these is one of three studentships funded by the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network project "Privacy & Usability" (Privacy.Us), to start on 1 August 2016 and working on collaborative and highly-interdisciplinary projects on privacy technologies, usability, authentication, healthcare, and genomics. For more information and how to apply through the PRISM system, please see project 2 on  ‘Privacy of Personal Health Data’ at https://www.prism.ucl.ac.uk/#!/?project=155 – the project will be supervised by Prof. Ann Blandford and Prof. Angela Sasse – the deadline for applications is 20 March 2016.

The second project is on ‘Online support for self-testing and early stages of care for HIV’ and the supervisory team are Prof. Ann Blandford, Prof. Rachel McKendry, Dr Pam Sonnenberg and Dr Jo Gibbs. Novel HIV diagnostic tests combined with advances in digital health provide new opportunities for people to self-sample, self-test, receive a diagnosis and be managed online without accessing traditional health care services. Early studies with users and potential users suggest that HIV self-testing could have considerable public health benefits by increasing access to testing to those at high risk and reducing barriers to testing in some of the estimated 25,000 people in England who are HIV positive but unaware of their diagnosis. However, there are many unanswered questions and design opportunities for future online support for self-testing and, where needed, subsequent engagement with healthcare services. Please see more information and how to apply through the PRISM system at https://www.prism.ucl.ac.uk/#!/?project=169. The deadline for applications is 4 April 2016.
