The Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis is offering a PhD studentship available for 4 years in duration (or 6 years for part-time candidates). Proposals are likely to be in and around the broad themes of Smart Cities, Visualisation and Mapping, and Urban Modelling and Simulation. Methods may include techniques drawn from areas such as social physics, scaling to econometric and statistical models, augmented reality and hyper-local sensing through to crowd sourcing, and may link to existing areas of CASA research although innovative proposals incorporating new techniques are also welcomed
We are looking for an outstanding candidate who will have obtained a Bachelor’s degree at either a first or upper second level, and a Masters degree in a relevant subject
