Researchers (Usability and Human Factors)

Motorola UK Research Lab, Motorola Ltd, Basingstoke, UK


Background

Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications,
semiconductor technology, advanced electronic equipment and services for
customers and markets around the world.  Products include cellular telephones
and systems, two-way radios, pagers, semiconductors, defence and aerospace
electronics, automotive, energy and industrial electronics, computers, data
communications and information processing and handling equipment.

Our core strengths in components and communication technologies, coupled with
our vision of the future, have allowed us to make long-term investments for the
creation of new industries and develop mobile and fixed communications products
that have set and will continue to set the standard in the market place.

Motorola Labs develops novel ideas from conception, through analysis and
simulation, to proof-of-concept demonstrators.  Our remit is to identify, and
advance through research, the technologies needed for future products.
Motorola's commitment to technology and research is reflected in the excellent
resources available.

Summary

Joining a small group of Human Factors specialists working within the Motorola
UK Research Laboratory, the post holder will provide a user focus on research
projects by applying user-centred design and usability techniques to investigate
user requirements, and implement and evaluate prototype user interfaces for
future innovative wireless services and applications.  Possible topics may
include research into the effects of different types of media on communications,
and data management for mobile multimedia applications

The post holder will be required to investigate multimedia user requirements,
interactions and interfaces, taking an application-focused approach and
considering products that will reach the market in 3 to 5 years,.  This includes
evaluation of different multimedia research technologies in terms of their
effective integration in future wireless devices; cross-disciplinary
communication skills are therefore essential.

The position will involve fundamental human factors research, prototype design,
implementation and evaluation.  Given the wide scope of the work, the candidate
may be required to work on multiple parallel projects.  Some contributions to
European collaborative projects may be expected. The post holder will also have
the opportunity to work with universities and maintain ties with other important
European work on wireless applications and interfaces.

Requirements:

The ideal candidate will be an excellent communicator, particularly to those
inexperienced in the field of human computer interaction.  In addition, they
will have experience in one or more of the following:

*       user-centered design process
*       user requirements elicitation
*       contextual analysis and design
*       multimedia and multimodal user interface design
*       cognitive modeling and cognitive ergonomics
*       ergonomics and human factors

In addition, some relevant industrial research experience is preferred.

The postholder must have the ability to work on multidisciplinary project teams,
where he/she will be expected to contribute towards integration of user-centred
design principles with technology development.  In addition, the post holder
should be highly self-motivated with the ability to work unsupervised and take
responsibility for delivering results.

Qualifications: Good first degree in psychology or computer science with
preferably a higher degree and/or research experience in human factors or
human-computer interaction.

Salary and Benefits

A competitive salary along with benefits, including relocation where necessary,
will be provided.

Motorola is committed to equal opportunities.
