The Graduate School at Northwestern University is seeking exceptional applicants to join the Ph.D. program in Technology and Social Behavior (TSB) in the Fall of 2019. Applications are due on December 31, 2018.

TSB is a joint Ph.D. program in Computer Science and Communication that draws on Northwestern's strong support for interdisciplinary research, benefits from talented faculty who contribute to a tradition of collaboration, and attracts unique students who are eager for academic experiences that cross traditional departmental boundaries. We are a growing and active community, with seven new faculty joining our program in the past four years.

We recruit students from a variety of backgrounds and provide rigorous training in human-computer interaction, drawing on computer science and social sciences methodologies. The combined degree benefits students by providing: training in a diverse set of quantitative and qualitative methods, experience designing and implementing new technologies, practice incorporating the results of empirical research into these technologies, and preparation for the widest range of academic and industrial jobs.

Core faculty in the TSB program come from Communication, Computer Science, and the Segal Design Institute. Our faculty include Larry Birnbaum, Jeremy Birnholtz, Pablo Boczkowski, Noshir Contractor, Leslie DeChurch, Nick Diakopoulos, Doug Downey, Matt Easterday, Ken Forbus, Steve Franconeri, Elizabeth Gerber, Darren Gergle, Jason Hartline, Brent Hecht, Mike Horn, Ian Horswill, Agnes Horvat, Jessica Hullman, Eleanor O’Rourke, Bryan Pardo, Anne Marie Piper, Madhu Reddy, Chris Riesbeck, Aaron Shaw, Uri Wilensky, Marcelo Worsley, Haoqi Zhang and several other faculty from affiliated departments.

Faculty and students in TSB address a broad range of topics including:
* Crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and collective action online
* Algorithmic accountability, bias, and transparency
* Computational journalism and computational communication
* Information visualization and interactive data analysis
* Tangible user interfaces for children and older adults
* Educational technology and games
* Assistive technology and accessibility
* Health information systems and technology for wellbeing
* Social interaction in technology-mediated environments
* Social networks and collective dynamics
* Social media design and use
* Creativity support and interactive audio tools
* Computing-related wealth inequality
* Language use and naturalistic behavior in online communities
* The digital divide from sociological, policy, and engineering perspectives
