We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to contribute to our work on body-based user interfaces. The ideal candidate has worked on technologies with/on/in the body or has competences in embodied cognition (e.g., from research in psychology) that might drive such work.
The position is associated with the project Body-UI, awarded by the European Research Council for five years to Kasper Hornbæk (www.kasperhornbaek.dk). The project combines results and methods from research on embodied cognition with recent advances in technologies for body-based UIs. We seek to understand how using the body to control computers changes the way users think and to demonstrate body-based user interfaces that offer new and better forms of interaction with computers.
The position is 2.5 years full-time positions in the Section on Human-centered Computing at the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen (www.di.ku.dk).
Why do a PostDoc at University of Copenhagen?
We offer a research environment with much freedom: to a large extent, you shape the research you work on and the ideas you pursue. Our section aspires to be a top research environment for human-computer interaction that bridges technology, theory, and empirical studies: we had eight papers at CHI 2016 (2 best papers) and five papers at CHI 2017 (1 best paper).
