Microsoft Research Cambridge UK post-doc position on the Future of Work 2019:


Details:

The Human Experience & Design group at Microsoft Research Cambridge UK has a new two-year post-doc position open. We’re looking for a technology-oriented social researcher to help us explore the Future of Work.


Application details are at: https://careers.microsoft.com/us/en/job/468669/Post-Doc-Researcher


Our website is admittedly lagging behind the most current work, but you can get an idea of what we’re up to at: https://hxd.research.microsoft.com/


One example of the impact of the work we do comes from my work on video-mediated collaboration. Concepts that I’ve been working on for quite a while have recently been released as features in Microsoft Teams (see a post at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/garage/wall-of-fame/companionexperiences/). I’m now able to start to research on the use of these features by end-users at a scale rarely possible in academic projects. We have several similar projects on the go at present.


If you’re interested, it will be important that your research and/or experiences reflect a strong and clear interest in technology.


Feel free to contact me if you’d like more information. Also feel free to pass this advertisement on to relevant people/lists.


Until anon, Sean
