PhD in GIS: Research Assistantship, available

Department of Spatial Information Science and Engineering National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis:

Two funded research assistantships for PhD students

There are currently available two funded research assistantships in the Department of Spatial Information Science and Engineering, University of Maine, USA. Students will be working with advisor Prof. Mike Worboys. Students will register for the degree of PhD. The funding will cover a stipend, tuition expenses, and a contribution to health insurance.

The first position relates to a recent project funded by the US National Science Foundation entitled "Information integration and human interaction for indoor and outdoor spaces". The project abstract may be found at http://worboys.org/projects/Title%20and%20abstract.pdf.

The second position relates to recent funding received on the use of spatial information systems and sensor technologies in emergency management.

The main focus of both assistantships will be the creation of underlying models and fundamental theories.

Candidates for either position should hold a master’s degree, or equivalent, in a subject that can be applied to spatial information systems and geographic information science (e.g., computer science, information systems, mathematics, or geography). The positions are available to be taken up immediately, but we are prepared also to wait for as long as it takes for the right candidates. Further information can be obtained by emailing Mike at worboys@spatial.maine.edu. The Department’s website is at http://spatial.umaine.edu/

The University of Maine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
