We are advertising a fully-funded PhD Studentship at the Centre for Human-Computer Interaction Design at City, University of London. The studentship is to be funded through the Microsoft Research Scholarship Programme and we anticipate the PhD student working with Microsoft Research during their studies.
The PhD will be a design-orientated study of collaborative work in organisational settings. The research is expected to involve empirically based fieldwork at multiple sites, studying organisational life and collaborative work. Beginning with a broad, open perspective in this domain, the work will narrow to focus on the increasingly prominent role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in collaborative and team-based technologies.
Applicants are sort with a masters degrees in one or more of the following areas: Organisation Studies, Science and Technology Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, HCI and/or Computer Science. Other experience will also be considered, for example, experience in related academic/industry research studying organisations or applied interactive AI/machine learning. The priority is for students to demonstrate an interest in organisational practices and a familiarity with critical perspectives in sociotechnical scholarship.
