Full Funded PhD Studentship Co-Design Mapping for Social Innovation Project: after an initial in-depth mapping of needs we aim at entering in a phase of co-design of Social Innovation. The co-design will support envisioning solutions addressing some of the identified needs by working with the local community. This phase of the research will be conducted with co-design techniques broadly defined. The successful applicant will have at least an undergraduate degree (2:1 or higher) and a background in Human-Computer Interaction or another cognate discipline, what is relevant and required is a strong co-design skillset and experience. We are open to different co-design perspectives and approaches, and the experience and personal approach of the candidate will be discussed during the interview. Working knowledge of a programming language would also be an asset, but it is not a mandatory requirement for the position. You will be responsible for the organisation of the co-design activities and contribute to envision potential Social Innovation solutions for the local community. In addition to the methodological skills noted above, candidates should have strong communication, interpersonal skills and interest to work at an interdisciplinary level.
