FUNDING FOR PH.D. in “Architectural Robotics”

Colleagues of mine from the Archibots workshop are currently looking for a new PhD student in architectural robotics to start in Clemson University (USA) in August 2010. So spread the word among your architects'friends:

Individuals trained in Architecture and/or the allied Design disciplines and interested in pursuing a Ph.D. focusing on design research may apply now for one or more funded openings, with August 2010 entry, to Clemson University. Full funding and living stipend will be awarded to a qualified applicant interested in engaging in research being undertaken within the research group IMSA (Intelligent Materials and Systems for Architecture) under the direction of Keith Evan Green. The successful candidate(s) will be expected to focus on the design, prototyping and evaluation of “architectural robotics” or, more broadly, computation embedded in the built environment at any scale. All IMSA research projects are collaborative, developed in partnership with faculty and students in Electrical and Computing Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering and Human Factors Psychology. The degree of Ph.D. will be granted by Clemson’s Ph.D. Program in PDB&E (Planning, Design & the Built Environment). Clemson is a top-25 U.S. public research university located between Atlanta and Charlotte. For consideration, applicants must complete the on-line application forms and forward official GRE and (for non-US citizens) TOFEL scores to the Graduate School; and email a design portfolio (a pdf file of less than 5MB, please) and copies of GRE and TOFEL scores to Professor Green. For best consideration, please submit these materials by February 15, 2010.
