PhD scholarship in Interactive Information Design RG, Koc University

The Interactive Information Design Research Group (aka Happern <>), is a part of Research Center for Creative Industries (KUAR) <>, in Koç University <> (Istanbul) focusing on interactive information design related research projects. We explore the complex, unexpected, uncommon happenings in human-information, human-human, human-environment and human-system interaction and communications. We spot these weird situations; we analyze them, we ideate, dream and design for them while looking for authentic interaction patterns.

And we do not work alone. We collaborate and team up with a network of people with similar interests. We walk this path together with people who like expressing themselves through visual language since they were kids, spending hours in front of maps examining numerous information; playing and tinkering with objects and nature to discover how things work and how they are constructed; collecting any kind of weird and inspirational stuff to imagine novel artifacts.

If you think you are one of us, why don't you join in? One way we can work together is applying for graduate degree in Koç University. Below you can find the details how you can apply for a Phd position.
