Description:We are looking for a post doc research associate to join the Intel Collaborative Research Institute, which is a joint venture between UCL/Imperial and Intel, on Connected and Sustainable Cities. The Institute is investigating, developing and deploying adaptive technologies that can optimize resource efficiency, and enable new services that support and enhance the quality of life of urban inhabitants and city visitors. There are many fundamental technical, social and urban challenges and opportunities that need to be addressed to accomplish this. The approach is interdisciplinary, combining methodologies from computer science, the social sciences, interaction design and architecture to improve how cities are managed and maintained in order to ensure and enhance citizen well-being. The post is funded for 2 years initially.

Eligibility:For this post, a PhD in HCI is essential. Candidates must have knowledge of research techniques and methodologies in ubiquitous computing, user studies, and persuasive technologies. Experience of physical computing, prototyping novel electronic technologies (hardware and software), C/C++, microcontroller programming (e.g. Arduino, Phidgets), is also desirable. A track record of publishing in top HCI, interaction design and ubiquitous computing conferences, (e.g. CHI, HCI, Pervasive, Ubicomp) is desirable alongside evidence of publishing in other high quality journals. The post is available at either Research Associate or Senior Research Associate level, depending on the experience of the successful applicants. Candidates seeking appointment at SRA level would need to have experience in leading small teams of researchers, given invited talks at international workshops/conferences, and served on Programme and Steering Committees.
