Two PhD studentships in the use of interactive medical devices, UCL


University College London

UCL INTERACTION CENTRE
PhD Studentship:  Understanding routine procedural action in the use of interactive devices

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the area of understanding routine procedural action and slip errors, under the supervision of Duncan Brumby and Anna Cox.  The precise focus will be developed with the student but may explore the effects of interruptions and resumptions, or of multi-tasking, in routine use of interactive devices.  The project will involve experimental work with human participants designed to test theories of interactive behaviour.  Details about the studentship and its role within the CHI+MED project can be found in the further information at http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/posts/studentship-WP3-2010/index.html.

Applicants should have a first or upper-second (2:1) class honours degree in Psychology, Cognitive Science or another related area and have a clear interest in human-computer interaction.  Experience of running controlled experiments with human participants is essential, as is an effective working knowledge of statistical data analysis tools (e.g., SPSS, R).  Candidates should have excellent written and verbal communication skills.  High levels of ability in computing and programming are desirable.
This is a funded studentship.  Details of level of funding and eligibility can be found in the further information, which also has instructions on how to apply.  Informal queries can be directed to Duncan Brumby (Brumby@cs.ucl.ac.uk, tel. 020 7679 0689) or Anna Cox (Anna.Cox@ucl.ac.uk).

The studentship runs for 42 months full-time starting September 2010.
Closing date for applications is 6 May 2010.
Interviews will be held on 20 May 2010.

Please note that another, separate studentship on the CHI+MED project is also available, on the situated use of interactive medical devices: see http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/posts/studentship-WP4-2010/index.html.

PhD Studentship: Situated use of interactive medical devices

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship on the use of interactive medical devices by patients and carers.  Based at the UCL Interaction Centre, the student will be part of an internationally leading Human-Computer Interaction group within the CHI+MED project.

Under the supervision of Ann Blandford and Astrid Mayer, the student will investigate how medical devices are used by patients and carers, particularly away from the hospital setting.  The project will involve a range of qualitative data gathering and analysis approaches including interviews, observations and patient diaries to build up a rich understanding of people's experiences with interactive medical devices such as infusion devices and glucometers.  Details about the studentship and its role within the CHI+MED project can be found in the further information at http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/posts/studentship-WP4-2010/index.html.

Applicants should have a first or upper-second (2:1) class honours degree in Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science or another related area and have a clear interest in human-computer interaction.  Experience of qualitative research is desirable.  Candidates should have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
This is a funded studentship.  Details of level of funding and eligibility can be found in the further information, which also has instructions on how to apply.  Informal queries can be directed to Ann Blandford (a.blandford@ucl.ac.uk, tel. 020 7679 0686) or Astrid Mayer (astrid.mayer@ucl.ac.uk).

The studentship runs for 42 months full-time starting September 2010.
Closing date for applications is 3 May 2010.
Interviews will be held on 13 May 2010.

Please note that another, separate studentship on the CHI+MED project is also available, on understanding routine procedural action in the use of interactive devices: see http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/posts/studentship-WP3-2010/index.html.
