*PhD Studentship: User experience of designed products

As users interact with designed products (including software, systems
and services) they form interpretations that influence how they think,
feel and behave. At a basic level, such interpretations are based on
form and functionality, whilst more complex responses include assessment
of the values that products are seen to embody and judgements on the
cultural associations that they evoke. This research project will
investigate how products are experienced, and how the design of those
products influences the meanings that are assigned to them.

Applications are invited from candidates irrespective of their
disciplinary or professional background. An interest in ideas along with
the ability to develop and express them is essential. The studentship is
for a period of three years preferably commencing 1 October 2009,
subject to satisfactory progress and the regulations of the University
of Cambridge. Funding will be available for exceptional candidates, from
the UK and EU, including maintenance and fees. Overseas students must be
self-funded. For more information see:
