JOB: Graduate Hours Assistant, UX Researcher/Designer on National Science Foundation funded Project

UX researcher/designer for the SONYC Project based in CUSP.
Further details and application through Handshake (closing Fri 12/20)

We are seeking to hire a graduate hourly research assistant, user experience (UX) researcher / designer to work on the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded SONYC (Sounds of New York City) project. The successful candidate will work with SONYC researchers in undertaking UX research and evaluation, and designing a consumer-focused version of the SONYC noise monitoring sensor, including a suite of web and mobile tools for interacting with the sensor and the data it generates. This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase existing UX skills and develop cutting edge techniques for interaction with machine learning algorithms, while working on a high profile and challenging problem and building portfolio examples. The project will adopt co-design methods, and so the successful candidate must have excellent communication and organization skills as they will be required to liaise closely with representatives of the community groups and City agencies we work with, and to assist in facilitating design workshops, and produce design documentation. This role would be ideal for someone who is looking to continue in a research focused UX position after graduation.
