Microsoft Research Funded PhD on Conversational User Interfaces for Mental Health

Health self-report or self-monitoring activities, such as mood logging, are a central part of many treatments for mental health problems. It serves to help raise awareness of the person’s own feelings, daily activities and cognitive processes, and provides measures and recordings that offer information for independent action, or consultation with care providers. In addition to mood charting as a standalone activity, or an activity conducted between face-to-face therapy sessions, accurate reporting of mood is integral for wellbeing applications and technologies to function appropriately.… Read more

PhD Studentship on Mobile Interventions for Mental Health

School of Computer Science and Statistics, Trinity College Dublin.

Mental and behavioural health conditions pose a major challenge to healthcare providers and society at large. It is generally accepted that mental health services are struggling to meet the needs of existing audiences as well as failing to reach large proportions of those in need. Technologies can help both to improve access to treatment, and help people to engage with treatment.… Read more

PhD positions on Visualization Support for Software Defined Data Centers

Trinity College Dublin in collaboration with Intel Labs Europe are seeking two exceptional candidates for postgraduate (PhD) research scholarships on visualization support for software-defined data centers. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) is an emerging technology that will radically change the way in which ICT infrastructure is provided, managed and consumed. The research will have a strong HCI component, starting with end-user interviews, observations, and analysis, feeding in to the design of visualizations to support the work. It will involve significant interaction with industrial users throughout.… Read more

Position for postdoctoral HCI researcher on Understanding and Visualizing Multicore Performance

The School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin  is looking for applications for a Post-doctoral research position in the area of HCI and Visualization. The position is part of Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, with collaboration from IBM Research.

Whereas previously only a small minority of programmers would deal with parallel programming, the shift towards multi-core has meant that
a much wider proportion of programmers will need to produce parallel programs. The successful candidate will work as part of a small team
on the ManyCore project, which aims to support this activity through visualizations which help programmers understand and improve the
performance of their programs.… Read more

PhD Studentship on Visualizing Multicore Performance

Improved performance is one of the main motivations behind the move towards the use of many-core processors, but how do software engineers actually do performance optimization? Can we provide better visual tools to allow programmers to better understand and improve their many-core programs? This PhD studentship in Human-computer Interaction will examine these questions.

PhD opportunities

I am interested in hearing from high quality potential PhD students – please send me a CV if you have a relevant Masters level qualification and/or experience of working interaction design, and are interested in working on producing technologies which match real-world needs.

Prospective PhD students may be interested in a number of potential funding schemes through IRCSET – next month IRCSET will be releasing details of the 2011 postgraduate scholarship scheme: note that these scholarships are very competitive and are only awarded to students with an excellent academic background.… Read more
