How do you hire a UX researcher?

Anyone have advice on hiring a user researcher? We have UX designers but having someone focused on research would really round out our team. Having a design background it is easier for me to interview graphic/interaction designers but interviewing researchers has felt awkward. 

I am wondering:

1. How important is the PHD?

2. Are there strong differences in personality types Research vs. Design?

Interaction Design methods library

About two years ago I came across a pretty exhaustive list of IxD methods, with advice on when to use them and examples of implementations. It covered prototyping, interviewing, ethnography research, information architecture, sketching, user testing, research analysis and synthesis, etc. - the whole shebang. It was nothing short of amazing, and yet I didn't bookmark it / lost the bookmark. Every few months I try to find it again. Really hoping I didn't dream the whole thing up. I faintly recall it being curated by a school, but that could be a red herring.

New IxDA Discussions Launching tomorrow!

Hi Everybody,

You may remember my message from a couple weeks ago announcing the new IxDA Discussions forum launching on Sept 24th. The time is here and we'll be launching the new site tomorrow. There are a few things to keep in mind during the transition:

1. You will need to setup a new account on the new forum. You can use your Google, Facebook, or Twitter accounts to sign up, or you can create a stand along account on the new forum.
