The HCI group at NAVER AI Lab invites applications for research scientists.
We expect you to do the following:
Propose, develop, and execute academic research projects at the intersection of HCI and AI.
Actively collaborate with other researchers at NAVER AI LAB to demonstrate the capabilities of AI technologies in designing novel HCI systems.
Lead a wide range of research activities including but not limited to interactive prototyping, user studies, surveys, design sprint, literature review, and deployment study.
Disseminate research outcomes at top-tier academic venues such as conferences and journals.
You can pursue your research visions in a bottom-up research environment where you can propose research agenda and organize a team.
You can collaborate with other researchers at other teams at NAVER or other academic institutes.
We provide various forms of collaboration including research internship, research centers (with Seoul National University and KAIST) so that you can work with talented people in AI-related disciplines.
You will have many opportunities to collaborate with product teams at NAVER, which develop numerous kinds of in-the-wild services on various platforms such as web, mobile, desktop, and smart speakers.
