Call for Qualified HCI Ph.D. Applicants
Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, Indianapolis (IUPUI)
Apply by January 15, 2017

The Ph.D. program in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC), Indianapolis (IUPUI) is seeking outstanding students to join the program in Fall 2017. Applications are due January 15, 2017.

The HCI Ph.D. program resides in the Human-Centered Computing Department, a new and growing department in SoIC that includes HCI, Media Arts and Science, Data Science and Informatics.
The HCC Department ( strongly promotes interdisciplinary and collaborative research with colleagues across IUPUI. Our HCI faculty and students employ a broad range of interdisciplinary informatics and computing research approaches, such as:

** Exploring future accessible interfaces for the blind and visually impaired.
** Designing ubiquitous and social technologies for complex social issues such as health and wellness, food insecurity, ** Sustainability, social inclusion, and social justice.
** Investigating how social media shapes knowledge communities and production.
** Examining scientific collaboration and the sociotechnical systems that support scientific knowledge production.
** Exploring new ubiquitous technologies for sharing cultural and historic knowledge.
** Transforming big data into useful data visualizations.

With seven tenure-track HCI faculty hires in the last two years, the HCI program is in the midst of a major expansion. In this dynamic and growing research program, Ph.D. students can expect to conduct cutting-edge research across a variety of topics, such as:

-- Accessibility for people with disabilities and older adults
-- Patient-centered interfaces in hospitals and clinics
-- Youth empowerment technologies for neighborhood health
-- Patient-centered technologies for personal and community health
-- Technologies to support successful aging
-- Global knowledge infrastructures for environmental change research
