Funded Ph.D. positions at the University of Michigan School of Information available for study of CSCW, HCI and Social Computing

We are looking for new doctoral students who want to train with our large and growing cadre of HCI and social computing faculty. We investigate theoretical and practical questions about how computing and communication technologies can enhance individual and collective capabilities and change social relations. We use methods ranging from design of new technologies to participant observation, surveys, data mining, and lab and field experiments.

The problems and opportunities of contemporary information use have both social and technical aspects, so we approach our research from a highly interdisciplinary perspective. The flexibility and scope of our doctoral program attract students from a wide variety of disciplines. Our world-class faculty have international reputations for cutting-edge research in human-computer interaction, social computing, experimental economics, digital archiving, health informatics, and more.

Admissions are highly competitive, but all admitted students receive a generous funding package that includes tuition, stipend, and health benefits. More information on the Ph.D. program is available on our website: https://www.si.umich.edu/content/phd. The application deadline is December 15.
