Cornell University fully-funded PhD positions in the DUET Lab and the Architectural Robotics Lab, deadline December 1. 

The DUET (Design for User Experience with Technology) Lab led by So-Yeon Yoon, and the Architectural Robotics Lab led by Keith Evan Green, invite candidates to apply for PhD positions at Cornell University (Ithaca, New York) with a start date of August 2018.

Cornell’s DUET research Lab is devoted to the empirical study of emerging visualization technologies in conjunction with user experience design in the context of physical and/or virtual environments. Advances in technology have enabled unprecedented improvements in the emerging fields of design visualization and bio-sensing. The DUET lab research focuses on understanding how people feel, think, and act in designed environments using advance visualization including VR/AR and bio/motion sensing technologies. 

Cornell’s Architectural Robotics Lab strives to address problems and opportunities of an increasingly digital society by developing and testing meticulous, artfully-designed, cyber-physical environment that act, think, and grow with their inhabitants. The novelty of the lab lies in its recognition of the physical, built environment, from furniture to the metropolis, as a next frontier of computing, robotics, and design.

Research in the two labs is highly collaborative, developed in partnership with faculty and students from departments including Information and Computer Science, Mechanical, Electrical, and Computing Engineering, Cognitive Science, Psychology, and Digital Humanities. 

Preferred applicants are individuals interested in pursuing a Ph.D. focused in design research who have earned prior degree(s) in a design discipline, broadly defined, including architecture, industrial design, product design, interior design, interaction design, user experience, media arts, HCI, HRI, human factors psychology, and/or human-centered design/computing/engineering. Successful applications will demonstrate a promise for cultivating new vocabularies of design and new, complex realms of understanding ecosystems of “bits, bytes, and biology.” 


Complete applications are due no later than December 1, 2018 without exception. Full funding and living stipend may be offered to qualified Ph.D. applicants. The degree of Ph.D. will be awarded in DEA (Design + Environment Analysis) at Cornell University. (The Architectural Robotics Lab also has a track for PhD students in Mechanical Engineering track—for this, apply to Cornell’s Sibbley School of MAE.) One of the eight Ivy League Universities, Cornell consistently ranks among the top-20 research universities globally, benefits from its beautiful natural surroundings in upstate New York, and adjoins the lively, inclusive downtown of Ithaca.
