Two fully funded PhD studentships in Human-Computer Interaction

Two fully funded PhD studentships in Human-Computer Interaction
Applications are invited from students to work on the following projects in Human-Computer Interaction at the UCL Interaction Centre [UCLIC] from September 2013.
Project 1: Work-Life Balance and the ‘quantified self’: Using personal informatics tools to regain control over digital habits.
Project 2: Seeing the World Differently.
Project 3: Steering users’ mood through proprioceptive feedback in full-body rehabilitation technology
Further details on each of these projects can be found on our Jobs pages. Applications can be made for any one of the projects using the application form available at this site.
These studentships are based at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) and are funded for 48 months from September 2013 by a doctoral training grant from the EPSRC. Eligible UK/EU candidates will receive a tax-free stipend of approximately £15,590 per annum as well as having tuition fees covered. To be automatically eligible for full fees and stipend, candidates must be a UK/EU national who has been ordinarily resident in the UK for the previous 3 years. Other EU candidates are eligible for fees only, but it may be possible to cover the stipend as well. Overseas applicants may similarly be able to receive the stipend, but must pay fees at the International rate, although they can apply for other sources of funding to have some or all of the fees waived.
In all cases, applicants should have a first or upper-second (2:1) class honours degree in HCI, Cognitive Science, Psychology, Computer Science or another related area and have a clear interest in Human-Computer interaction. Candidates should also have excellent written and oral communication skills and a passion for presenting and representing in innovative, creative and insightful ways.
Applications should include a two page outline of your research proposal setting your research problem in the project area of interest with some background information about the problem as well as methods you would use to tackle it. You can also download the application form from the UCL Jobs pages at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/jobs/ and search on Reference number 1344227. Enquiries about the application process can be made to Louise Gaynor (L.Gaynor@ucl.ac.uk). You can find out more about research in general at UCLIC on the research projects pages and people pages.
Closing date for applications is Friday 19 July 2013.
Interviews will be held around Tuesday 13 August 2013.
