PhD in Sociotechnical co-design for human-machine configurations

We are seeking a highly motivated, qualified candidate with a passion for radically embodied thinking and doing, interdisciplinary research, and contributing to a more inclusive and diverse vision of our technological future. A three–year PhD scholarship, including a living stipend of $28,596 per annum plus a total of $3000 candidature support (e.g., to support research-related travel), is available. It is intended to enable research that advances our understanding of diverse sociocultural contexts and embodied, inclusive participatory meaning-making as being integral to designing sociotechnical artefacts and the human-machine configurations they produce. The successful applicant will work with a team of interdisciplinary researchers to contribute to a research project, funded by the Australian Research Council, which investigates how sociotechnical artefacts become social agents through a critical, radically embodied co-design approach.
