A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the area of multimodal 
human-computer interaction at the University of Bath, UK.  The research 
will investigate how multiple output technologies such as 3D visual 
displays, 3D audio and tactile output may  effectively be combined with 
multimodal input technologies such as freehand 3D gestural input, speech 
and haptic input, to support effective human-computer interaction in 
novel interaction scenarios and applications.

Candidates should normally have a good first degree (equivalent to a 
First Class or 2:1 Honours) or a Masters degree in computer science, 
human-computer interaction or a related discipline.  Candidates must 
have a strong interest in human-computer interaction, solid programming 
skills and be willing and able to develop excellent knowledge and skills 
in research methods and data analysis techniques, including quantitative 
and qualitative methods.

The successful candidate will be supervised by Professor Eamonn O’Neill 
(  He or she 
will work with other HCI researchers with specific interests in 3D 
gestural, visual and auditory interaction, and will benefit from contact 
with a wider group of researchers in areas including HCI, Graphics, 
Computer Vision and Intelligent Systems.  The Department of Computer 
Science at the University of Bath is home to one of the leading 
Human-Computer Interaction research groups in the world, including 3 
full Professors in HCI and around 30 related staff and postgraduates. 
The University is in the top 10 of every relevant UK league table.

Informal inquiries about the research project or the wider research 
context at Bath may be sent to Professor Eamonn O’Neill 
([log in to unmask]).

For more general information and to apply, see:

“PhD programme in Computer Science (full-time)”.

The studentship is fully funded (fees and stipend) for 42 months for 
eligible students.  EPSRC eligibility rules apply; for information see:

The successful candidate is expected to start on 1 October 2014 although 
another date may be negotiable.
