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 ( 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 (

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).
