Call for PhD Applications

I’m always looking for good students and VUW accepts PhD applications three times a year: 1 March, 1 July and 1 November

The final round for this year’s PhD applications is coming up, and I’m looking for a few good people to come push the boundaries of design research with me.

Do you have a strong background in sociology, anthropology, humanities, or design?

Are you interested in critically evaluating what happens when you combine different ways of thinking, doing and making?

Would you like some experience teaching undergraduate design ethnography, systems of design, or social design?

Yes? Great!

I’m available to supervise doctoral studies in any of the following areas:

  • ethnographic studies of designers
  • human-animal-technology studies
  • STS approaches to design processes & products
  • creative ethnographic methods
  • technosocial controversies
  • design & public understandings of science

Still interested? Excellent!

Here’s everything you need to know about the PhD application process and don’t forget that Victoria Doctoral Scholarships of $23,500 annual stipend + tuition fees are available on a competitive basis. And if that’s still not enough, 96% of people agree that Wellington is an awesome place to live, work and study!

If you have any questions about working with me, or other opportunities in VUW’s School of Design, please just email me directly.
