A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the area of multimodal 3D interaction. The research will investigate how 3D audio and 3D visual display technologies can be combined with 3D gestural, auditory and other input technologies to support effective human-computer interaction.
The successful candidate will be supervised by Prof Eamonn O’Neill (www.bath.ac.uk/comp-sci/contacts/academics/eamonn_oneill). He or she will work alongside other HCI researchers with specific interests in 3D gestural, visual and auditory interaction, and will benefit from contact with a wider group of researchers in areas including Graphics, Computer Vision and Intelligent Systems. The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath houses one of the leading Human-Computer Interaction research groups in the world, including 3 full Professors in HCI and around 30 related staff and postgraduates. The University is in the top 10 of every relevant UK league table.
Candidates should normally have a good first degree (First Class or 2:1 Honours) or Masters degree in computer science, human-computer interaction or a closely related discipline. Candidates must have a strong interest in human-computer interaction, excellent programming skills and be willing and able to develop excellent knowledge and skills in research methods and data analysis techniques, including quantitative and qualitative methods.
Informal inquiries about the research project or the wider research context at Bath should be directed to Prof Eamonn O’Neill ([email protected]
