Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in Learning Sciences based at the Moray House School of Education. This is a fully funded studentship, undertaken full time over a three-year period. Applications from individuals with previous experience of research in this field are particularly welcome, and/or from those with human computer interaction design expertise. This prestigious PhD post is funded by the Wellcome trust as part of a larger UK/US Practitioner/Research $2.4million project: Move2Learn. The student would be supported by, and expected to contribute toward, the wider Move2Learn team at Edinburgh and partner organisations, in particular, with a parallel PhD post at University College London
The PhD focus is flexible but should related to:
- Early Learning (0-8 years)
- STEM subjects
- Embodied Cognition as a theoretical foundation (the role of the body in conceptual development)
- We are particularly interested in applications from those with an interest/experience in the design/development of technologies that capture body action (e.g. gesture/accelerometers/body tracking)
