FUNDING FOR A PH.D. STUDENT in “Architectural Robotics” entering Clemson University (USA) in August 2013

Individuals trained in Architecture or the allied Design disciplines (e.g. Industrial Design, Product Design, Interaction Design, Media Arts, HCI and Human-Centered Design/Computing/Engineering) and interested in pursuing a Ph.D. focused on design research may apply now for one or more funded openings, with August 2013 entry, to Clemson University. Full funding and living stipend will be offered to qualified applicants interested in engaging in research being undertaken within CU-iMSE (the Institute for Intelligent Materials, Systems & Environments). The successful candidate(s) will be expected to focus on the design, prototyping and evaluation of “architectural robotics” or, more broadly, interactive, digital-physical environments from furniture scale to the scale of the metropolis. Successful applicants must have a professional 5-year bachelors degree in a design field and/or a Masters degree in any of the aforementioned disciplines. We particularly seek applicants with strong design and communications skills who are well-versed in at least one of the following: tangible/physical computing, interaction design, human factors psychology, digital/parametric design, media arts and/or digital fabrication. CU-iMSE research projects are collaborative, developed in partnership with faculty and students in Architecture, Electrical & Computing Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering and Human Factors Psychology. The degree of Ph.D. will be granted by Clemson’s Ph.D. Program in PDB&E (Planning, Design & the Built Environment). Clemson is a top-25 U.S. public research university located between Atlanta and Charlotte. For consideration, applicants must complete the on-line application form; forward to the Graduate School official GRE scores (and TOFEL scores, if English is not the primary language); and email Dr. Keith Evan Green a design-research portfolio (a pdf file of less than 5MB exhibiting creative, published and/or research activities). For best consideration, all materials should be received by January 15.
