      The University of Technology Sydney, Connected Intelligence Centre (CIC), is offering three $35,000 PhD Scholarships in 2016.

      CIC’s mission is to invent, evaluate and theorise the design of human-centered data science and learning analytics to advance the UTS Teaching & Learning program. As you will see from our Research Themes and the three PhD topics advertised, a core theme is analytics techniques to nurture in learners the creative, critical, sensemaking qualities needed for lifelong learning, employment and citizenship in a complex, data-saturated society.

      We are currently advertising three PhD scholarships in learning analytics, falling under the themes of:

      1. Learning across digital and physical spaces
      2. Learning analytics for writing practices and products
      3. Human-Centred-Design for Learning Analytics

      Applications are invited from those with backgrounds in the social sciences (psychology, linguistics, education, learning sciences, information science, design, etc.), or/and those with an interest in human-centred applications of computer science, mathematics, statistics or equivalent.

      We invite you to apply for a place if you are committed to working in a transdisciplinary team to invent user-centered analytics tools in close partnership with the UTS staff and students who are our ‘clients’. Please explore our website so you understand the context in which we work, and the research topics we are supervising. We invite informal inquiries in the first instance.

      Selection Criteria
      Appointments will be made based on the quality of the candidates, their proposals, the overall coherence of the team, the potential contribution to UTS student and educator experience, and the research advances that will result.

      The criteria are specified in the CIC PhD website (http://utscic.edu.au/research/phd/), both generic and specific to advertised projects. Evidence will be taken from an applicant’s written application, face-to-face/video interview, multimedia research presentation at interview, and references.

      Applications
      Applicants for a Studentship should follow the instructions at http://utscic.edu.au/research/phd/ and submit:

      • Covering letter
      • Curriculum Vitae
      • Research Proposal, maximum 4 pages, applying for one of the advertised PhD topics

      Please email your scholarship application, with PhD 2016 Application in the subject line, to: Bridget Payne

      Deadline
      We aim to appoint for August 2016, the start of the second semester. We invite applications by close of Sunday 1st May 2016, with shortlisting for interview shortly after. However, there is an advantage to contacting us earlier to open discussions: you are encouraged to get in touch with project leads informally in advance of that because if we like you, we will offer you a place as soon as we can.

      Please get in touch with the Director (Simon Buckingham Shum) if you have queries about CIC in general, and with the relevant supervisors about the topic of interest to you.

      The UTS application form, and further guidance on preparation and submission of your research proposal, are on the UTS Research Degrees website. The 30 October deadline does not apply to these Scholarships.
