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 programming skills, good design sense, and an interest in applying social science methods to studying user behavior. 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, then contact Dr. Wobbrock and apply to our Ph.D. in Information Science.

Masters students and undergraduates: Come work with us! If you are interested in joining one of our HCI research projects and have either good programming or good visual design skills (or both), 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 2 quarters, and you must be willing to put in 10 hours/week minimum. Independent study credits may be arranged.
