Postdoctoral Research Positions
Hybridab, School of Industrial Design, Université de Montréal, Canada, 2012-2017The Laboratory of Design Research, Hybridlab, at the School of Industrial design of the Faculty of Environmental Design at the Université de Montréal, is offering three (3) Ph.D. and/or postdoctoral positions under the supervision of professor Tomás Dorta, in the following research fields: (a) Design theory, design process and design creativity; (b) Design and Human-Computer Interaction, (c) Design, CAD and computer science.
These research fold into the research program titled "Augmented Co-Design: Transparency and extraversion of the ideation process through the interconnected HIS" funded by SSHRC-Insight program. The project's primary objective is to better understand ideation as it is being “extraverted” by collaborative design, letting its cognitive mechanisms come forward in the interconnected HIS. The HIS (Hybrid Ideation Space) is an immersive system (360 ° panoramic) for collaborative work in life-size and real time representations, through
freehand sketches and models.
