The Exertion Games Lab, which sits within the Department of Human-Centred Computing researches the future of interfaces for playful experiences, focusing on the merging of play, technology and the active human body. This lab is seeking a passionate researcher and educator to join the department in the role of a Lecturer.

In this role, you will make significant contributions to the research and engagement activities of the Exertion Games Lab, advancing the human-computer interaction (HCI) and interaction design fields.

The Exertion Games Lab is looking for candidates who value an interdisciplinary design studio environment. You will be highly motivated, extremely creative as well as technical, and also have highly developed analytical and communicative skills. Prior research experience (publications in HCI and games/play venues, etc.) is required and so are hardware prototyping abilities (Arduino, mixed-reality/AR/VR, tangibles, etc.) and software skills. We are looking at creativity, excellence and drive. 

To be successful in this role, you must have a doctoral qualification in the relevant discipline with the knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality research outputs and the ability to supervisor graduate and post-graduate research students.

If you believe you fit this profile, we look forward to receiving your application!
