About the Role

The Language Centre within the School of Languages, Linguistics and Film (SLLF) is looking to appoint a Research Assistant in Co-Design on the project project ‘Autistic adults online: Understanding and enabling autistic sociality in digital networking environments’. The post holder will work closely with the investigators leading the design-related work package. She or he will join the project in the final phase when co-production workshops with autistic adults have been completed and data collected and transcribed. The postholder’s responsibilities will include creating a toolkit based on the findings of earlier stages of the project, running workshops with stakeholders to get feedback on the toolkit and iterate its design, and contribute to the project’s impact activities.

You should have a PhD in human-computer interaction, design studies or a related area of research. You should be able to demonstrate an understanding of design thinking and design methods and experience in the collection and analysis of data resulting from workshops and co-creation activities. You will have excellent oral and written communication skills, and demonstrable experience of successful project delivery and working as part of a team.

About the Project

The ESRC funded project ‘Autistic adults online’ engages in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of linguistics and human-computer interaction design, examining how autistic adults use social media to establish connections with different relational groups and how they navigate the opportunities and challenges of such interaction.

You will be working with Professor Nelya Koteyko (Principle Investigator, SLLF) and Professor John Vines (Co-Investigator, School of Design, University of Edinburgh).
