Postdoctoral Position in Deformable User Interactions @ Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada

The Creative Interactions Lab at Carleton University ( is seeking a talented and motivated postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on novel interactions techniques, specifically with deformable user interactions. We are mostly interested in human computer interaction candidates who have expertise or interests in deformation interaction techniques, shape shifting, and/or tangible user interfaces. 


This position will focus on investigating devices that augment the creativity and expressiveness of graphical design artists by applying deformation to their current tools. To examine this, we have created FlexStylus, a deformable pen. The postdoctoral fellow (PDF) will extend this work by focusing on the design, fabrication and evaluation of the next versions of FlexStylus. The PDF will contribute to the leadership of ongoing projects while also initiating new ones based on their unique background and expertise. The PDF will also have the opportunity to supervise graduate and undergraduate students. 

Other projects in deformation UIs might be considered for interested candidates. 


A successful candidate has
- a PhD in HCI, computer science, systems/computer/electrical/mechanical engineering, or a related field
- experience (or strong interest in) in the area of HCI research, hardware development, software development 
- track record of publication in high-quality venues related to human computer interaction and/or sensors
- creativity, independence
- excellent team working and communication skills, and high motivation for research at the intersection of HCI and new technologies

Start date is flexible. Position length is 2 years, with an option to extend. 

Informal inquiries are welcome and may be made to Audrey Girouard ([log in to unmask]). 

To apply, please submit the following information to [log in to unmask]: your CV, your research statement, a full list of publications, names and contact information of three references, and PDFs of three selected publications.

Review of applications will begin December 1st, and continue until the position is filled.
