At Sheffield Hallam University we are currently looking for suitable applicants for a PhD studentship in Unencumbered Interactive Environments. The studentship is funded internally by the Digital Technology Research Centre (fees paid, 400-500/year expenses, 8k bursary). Any student or recent graduate, preferably with good programming and technical skills as well as artistic experience, who might be interested in such a role should contact Professor Simon Biggs or Dr Chris Roast. It is a jointly directed PhD between Fine Art (lead school) and Computing (HCI).

Rated a 5 in the recent Research Assessment Exercise (one of only a few such schools in the UK to attain this rating) and also rated 21/24 in the recent Teaching Quality Assessment, again one of the highest ratings in the UK.
