If you are passionate about design, user experience, human-computer interaction, and/or learning, we will probably get along just fine. The lab thrives on eclectic, adventurous researchers from a broad range of backgrounds, and we would love for you to join us. Research is hard work, but we provide a lot of support, and access to every stage of the process—from generating research questions and filing human-subjects applications to data collection, analysis, and publication. These supports and opportunities are open to you, regardless of classification, as long as you are willing to read, learn, fail, and ask tough questions. All we ask of you is to be passionate, hard-working, and collaborative.
If you are interested in graduate study, check out our MS or PhD programs. If you are interested in undergraduate study, you may want to find out more about our groundbreaking major in UX Design.
