We will be advertising three Ph.D. studentships - 1-2 for September 2024, and 1-2 for September 2025, as well as 1 PDRA post in summer 2024.

PhD Posts for 2024 and 2025 (FindAPhD Advert)

We are looking for excellent and enthusiastic students to join AUGSOC. We are recruiting for up to 3 PhD positions (3.5 years) across 2024 and 2025, with this first round of recruitment targeting 1st October 2024 start date; and a second round in 2025 targeting 1st October 2025.

The studentships are fully funded for fees and stipend for UK and EU citizens. Recruited PhDs will be paid at UKRI stipend rates. Unfortunately, the funding is not open to non-UK/non-EU students.

We are looking for candidates that have experience with qualitative and/or quantitative methods (ideally both) from a Human-Computer Interaction perspective. Experience with immersive applications is also a big plus. You’ll have an opportunity on this project to develop or deepen your technical skills and develop immersive applications on cutting edge virtual, augmented and extended reality headsets. Applicants should have experience designing and running user evaluations and analyzing the results of surveys, interviews, and performance data. Experience developing immersive applications (e.g. in Unity), demonstrated technical/development ability, and experience with related technologies (e.g. RGBD sensing, computer vision, use of generative AI) would also be beneficial, but we are open to strong non-computing science candidates with a capability to develop their immersive technology development skills.

You’ll be working with Mark McGill, Joseph O’Hagan, Graham Wilson, Mohamed Khamis and others in the world-leading Glasgow Interactive Systems Section (GIST) in the School of Computing Science at Glasgow. You can see some of the exciting research we have been doing on our google scholar pages, and the publications page of the AUGSOC website.

If you have any questions, or if you intend to apply, please contact mark.mcgill ‘at’
