|Call for PhD application (July 2017 session)|
We are looking for candidates who are looking for meaningful work and interested in emerging and fascinating areas of HCI as PhD candidates for the coming July 2017 session.
We are majorly looking candidates who are interested in two broad following areas.
1. Novel interaction techniques (methods/modalities) for flexible displays and devices - In general, we expect candidate to explore and experiment on new interaction techniques (e.g. bend, squeeze, fold, roll and many more to be identified during research) for future flexible displays and devices. This area further expands to exploring possibilities on new shapes, contextual interaction techniques and dynamically changing interfaces for flexible displays and devices. We are working in this area since last 2.5 years and lab has all facilities and guidance to support research in this area
2. Virtual reality (VR) - research exploration on immersion, displays sizes (HMD, CAVE, monitor-based displays etc.) and related input methods (gestures, gaze, speech, specialized devices etc.) and user interactions, feedback methods (visual, aural, haptic - tactile, proprioceptic etc.). We are open for research exploration in domains of visualization, walk-through and training.
These are broad descriptions, so whoever is interested in it, can further email the lab. We can have a detailed discussion on each of these topics and your interest areas. Please prepare a brief statement of purpose with following details. Candidates will have to follow the procedure of IIT Guwahati to apply for PhD at EILab.The application should be routed through IIT Guwahati website.
