These studentships are based at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) and are funded for 48 months from September 2013 by a doctoral training grant from the EPSRC. Eligible UK/EU candidates will receive a tax-free stipend of approximately Â£15,590 per annum as well as having tuition fees covered. To be automatically eligible for full fees and stipend, candidates must be a UK/EU national who has been ordinarily resident in the UK for the previous 3 years. Other EU candidates are eligible for fees only, but it may be possible to cover the stipend as well. Overseas applicants may similarly be able to receive the stipend, but must pay fees at the International rate, although they can apply for other sources of funding to have some or all of the fees waived.
In all cases, applicants should have a first or upper-second (2:1) class honours degree in HCI, Cognitive Science, Psychology, Computer Science or another related area and have a clear interest in Human-Computer interaction. Candidates should also have excellent written and oral communication skills and a passion for presenting and representing in innovative, creative and insightful ways.
