Prospective Ph.D. students: We are always looking for talented new students who want to pursue an aggressive research-driven Ph.D. in HCI. You should have strong skills in at least two of the following: computer programming, interaction design, and/or quantitative research methods (i.e., experiment design, statistics). Being a good HCI researcher is about having creative original ideas—you must produce new knowledge, not just be good at exams and assignments others have given you. If you think you might be a good fit, contact Prof. Wobbrock and apply to our Ph.D. in Information Science or the Ph.D. in Computer Science & Engineering.

Masters students and undergraduates: Come work with us! If you are interested in joining one of our HCI research projects and have good computer programming skills, please contact me. (Please read some of our research papers first.) Note that if you are a working member of our research team, co-authorship and funded travel are possibilities. However, you should expect to join our team for at least two quarters, and you must be willing to put in at least 10 hours/week. Independent study credits may also be arranged.
