About the Project
The research proposed for this doctoral project includes the design, development, and evaluation of virtual reality technology to train local firefighters for wildfire scenarios. This project is new, however, it continues a successful collaboration between academics from the College of Engineering and local firefighters in New Zealand. This collaboration has already resulted in several publications and the development of an early prototype.
We are looking for a candidate with a strong academic background and interest as well as good knowledge of research methods in human-computer interaction with first-class honours or Master’s degree in computing, psychology, education, game development or a closely related field.
The project is hosted in the HIT Lab NZ and will be supervised by academics from the School of Product Design’s Applied Immersive Game Design major and the Applied Immersive Gaming Initiative in the HIT Lab NZ.
