Ph.D. theses

If you're interested in doing a Ph.D. in Human Computer Interaction in Lyon, get in touch! We have regular openings on funded projects, and our labs funds excellent 4 candidates every year (application deadline in May/June). The usual process to join us, is to intern with us or visit during or after your Masters degree.

PLACED Project

We are looking for a Ph.D. student to work on place and activity-centric services for libraries. PLACED aims at designing digital services to capture the new type of activities happening in libraries, e.g. public reading, hackathons, meetups, etc., and integrate these activities to library collections. The Ph.D. will focus on the design of ambient visualisations embedded in the library and accounting for past, present, and future events happening there.

PLACED is a ~1M€ project in collaboration with the University of Aarhus, Chalmers University, the French National Library School, Dokk1, the libraries of Lyon and Goteborg.

Detailed job posting and application instructions.

Post-docs

We are looking for a post-doc in HCI / UX research within the REPI project. The post-doc will work Activity Based Computing in high-schools, either on the technical aspects, or the adoption and appropriation of such technology in high-schools. We are looking for people with either Psychology, Design, Human-Factors, Learning or Computer Science backgrounds.

Our goal within the project it to link Activity Based Computing to Orchestration and Macro-Scripting.

The Post-doc will have the opportunity to conduct their own research within the project frame, to collaborate with a Ph.D. student working on the technical aspects of the project. Supervision of master students is also to be expected.
