Post-doctoral Position in Interaction Design and Human-Computer Interaction

Singapore University of Technology and Design

A post-doctoral research and design position in Interaction Design and Human-Computer Interaction is available at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The role of the position is to iteratively prototype innovative interaction strategies and detailed visual UI design for hitherto-considered complex 3D modeling task, to be operated on tablet platforms. The core task is to engage in a series of detailed high-fidelity visual design of interaction sequences through literature review, iterations of interaction/screen sketchings and turn them into interactive prototypes so that the concepts and strategies created are realistically demonstrated. Conducting some user testing throughout this prototyping process in order to inform the design refinement will also be part of the role. Strong high-fidelity visual/interactive design experience and prototyping skill on multitouch devices are essential, and interests in eye-tracking, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality interaction will be beneficial as one stream of the project will address the feasibility of using these modalities for 3D modeling task. It is expected that the dissemination route for this project will be design exhibitions/showcases, competitions as well as academic publications. The position is for 2 years starting anytime from September 2016. 

The project is a collaboration between SUTD (Singapore) and Zhejiang University (China), and the post-doc is expected to work in SUTD, and there will be opportunities to visit Zhejiang University during the project period. There may also be various opportunities to supervise student projects and support HCI-related classes that the Principal Investigator is involved in. Informal enquires on the position are welcome - contact Dr. Hyowon Lee ( 

SUTD is Singapore’s 4th national university, established in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Using ‘Design’ as the cross-disciplinary backbone and theme amongst product and engineering design, information system design and architectural design, the university is research-focused, quality-driven and forward-thinking, and shares its research outlook with MIT.
