Call for PhD Applications

Posted on Jun 3, 2014 in Conferences, Workshops & CFPs

It’s that time again! VUW is now accepting PhD applications for the 1 July round, and I’m looking for a few good people to come push the boundaries of design and cultural 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 tutoring undergraduate design ethnography, multispecies design, or speculative design?

Yes? Great!

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

  • human-animal-technology studies & multispecies design
  • STS approaches to design processes & products
  • creative ethnographic methods & speculative design
  • technosocial controversies & public engagement

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, Wellington is an awesome place to live, work and study!

If you’re interested in applying, please send me a one page summary of your research interests, and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about working with me, or other opportunities in VUW’s School of Design.

APPLICATION DEADLINES: 1 MARCH, 1 JULY, 1 NOVEMBER
