I am seeking a student to begin doctoral study in August 2017 to study the history of information or the history of computing under my supervision. The successful applicant would be admitted into the information science department, which means they would also be required to learn a significant amount of technical and social science material as part of their degree program.  Four years of financial support is guaranteed, assuming continued good standing in the doctoral program. Admission is highly competitive.

We are a new department in a new college.Our first doctoral students began study in August 2016.  Both the department and the college are highly interdisciplinary. The department is particularly strong in human centered computing and design, although we represent many other research areas as well. The college faculty includes five historians of media, communication, and information (William Aspray, Lori Emerson, Janice Peck, Peter Simonson, and Ted Striphas), and there are ample opportunities to study across departmental borders.

For more information about the program, including information about how to apply, see http://www.colorado.edu/cmci/academics/information-science/graduate-degrees. The application deadline is December 7. Interested students can contact me at: aspray at colorado.edu<mailto:aspray at colorado.edu>
