Subject: Call for Interns - please forward as appropriate
Intel Corporation's Domestic Designs and Technologies Research Group
is calling for interns! As part of Domestic Designs and Technologies
Research, the ethnographic and design research team within the Digital
Home Group, you will work within a multidisciplinary team to explore
and research 'love and spirituality' and its intersection with
computers and technology, in and around the home.
DDTR is a driving force within the Digital Home Group: our charter is
to develop a clear & actionable understanding of daily life all over
the world, identify opportunities for our platforms to enable
experiences that consumers value, merge original insights with
technology, market, platform and planning intelligence to define usage
models & platform requirements, and seed future research & platform
opportunties. DHG's vision is to make Intel the trusted foundation of
your digital home. To that end, the Digital Home Group develops
computing and communications oriented platforms that anticipate and
satisfy the needs of consumers world-wide.
We will be offering 3 month paid internships starting in October '06,
January '07, and April '07, for graduate students in anthropology,
design research or related social sciences. Interns must re-locate to
the Portland, Oregon area to work closely with the research team
during the entire length of the internship.
We are looking for individuals with experience in designing and
conducting both qualitative and quantitative user or design research
studies, including analysis of the resulting data. Candidates should
prepare a concise yet thorough one-page proposal to explore some
aspect of love and spirituality and its intersection with computers
and technology in and around the home. Exact responsibilities of the
position will be defined with the successful applicant based on the
proposal you submit.
Please submit your proposal describing the research you'd like to do
in this area over the course of your internship to
firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications (CV + proposal) must be
received by July 31st, October 31st, and January 31st respectively for
the Oct, Jan, and April start dates; successful candidates will be
contacted by the 10th of the month following.
