Monash PhD Scholarship Opportunity: Emerging Technologies Lab

The Emerging Technologies Research Lab, directed by Professor Sarah Pink, undertakes critical interdisciplinary and international research into the social, cultural and experiential dimensions of the design, use and futures of new and emerging technologies. Sitting across the faculties of Information Technology and of Art, Design and Architecture (MADA), the Lab investigates an emerging technological environment where automation, artificial intelligence, data and the questions of ethics, responsibility and user experience and engagement that they bring with them are increasingly central.

The Emerging Technologies Lab invites applications for two or more fully funded, 3-year PhD scholarships for commencement in 2019. Applicants should have a background in anthropology, design or a cognate discipline, and be committed to undertaking research into the social, cultural and experiential elements of the design, use and futures of emerging technologies. PhD students will participate in the work of the Lab by undertaking their own projects, supervised by Professor Pink and an appropriate second supervisor. They will also have opportunities to collaborate in team projects and to connect with the Lab’s international research community.

Closing date for receipt of EOI’s: 21 April 2019 at 11.55pm.
