The Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering (HCDE) at the

HCDE is a vibrant, welcoming, and engaged interdisciplinary community 
that incorporates a range of intellectual traditions. We offer BS, MS, 
and PhD degrees and serve as a founding contributor to three 
interdisciplinary graduate degrees. Candidates will teach undergraduate 
and graduate courses and will supervise doctoral students. The yearly 
teaching load is three courses (one per quarter) plus supervision of 
for-credit directed research groups. Teaching opportunities will be 
based on our current course offerings and the individual’s areas of 
scholarly expertise. Successful candidates will join a dynamic faculty 
conducting interdisciplinary research in the design and engineering of 
sociotechnical systems broadly defined. More information about our 
department can be found at http://www.hcde.washington.edu 

The successful candidate will be expected to expand on one or more 
emerging areas within the department, including:

  1. Design (e.g., data visualization; design education;
  2. Engineering (e.g., data science; human-robot interaction; machine
     learning/artificial intelligence; augmented and virtual reality;
     infrastructure development)
  3. Technology & Society (e.g., policy and ethics in the designing of
     technologies such as those listed in 1 and 2 above).

Successful candidates will be expected to address the societal 
implications of technology and think globally in their research. 
Successful candidates will be expected to deal directly or indirectly 
with design, engineering, and policy issues such as data use/misuse; 
social and environmental justice; and equity and civic engagement.

Successful candidates are expected to develop substantial programs of 
research including peer-reviewed publications and external funding. 
Candidates should show evidence of strong promise in teaching as well as 

All UW faculty engage in teaching, research and service. The College of 
Engineering regularly sets visions for strategic research areas; current 
areas can be found here:

members also routinely collaborate with colleagues across campus and 
with affiliates from the region’s noted high-tech industry. Seattle is a 
culturally diverse urban center with growing racial, ethnic and 
immigrant communities. It is also home to many prominent technology 
companies, along with a robust startup and global health community. The 
University of Washington is building a culturally diverse faculty and 
encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
