The Doctoral College Geographic Information Science at the University
of Salzburg offers 8 PhD positions in the field of GIScience and
Geoinformatics in cross-disciplinary research projects. These
positions are supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

Details are available at http://dk-giscience.zgis.net/

We are looking for highly skilled and enthusiastic young researchers
to work in three interconnected, interdisciplinary, research fields:

Representations and Data Models
…is focused on research into the conceptual modelling of space,
spatial features and phenomena, and provides a spatial view of various
categories of physical and abstract information objects in order to
reveal the potential power of the 'spatial perspective'.

Time and Process
…research leverages the increasing availability of real-time sensor
data, the importance of process-oriented modelling, and will address
the need for temporal modelling beyond simple discrete time slices.

Spatialization, Contextualisation and Society
…considers user perspectives and utilizes geospatial communication as
a hypotheses generator for geospatial research: cognitive processes
lead to mental maps which are highly relevant for actions, which in
turn modify physical and societal spaces.

The Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS aims to combine
high quality education with excellent research. The PhD candidates
will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers and educators in the
field of Geographic Information Science and Geoinformatics.

Requirements are the excellent completion of a degree at the Masters
level in Geoinformatics, Geomatics, Geography (or possibly Geology for
one position), Computer Science or any scientific/technical subject in
a relevant field, and excellent English language (both oral and
writing) skills.

Important dates:

First Application deadline: 13th April, 2015 (later applications may
be considered for a second round of interviews if any positions remain
Selection workshop (for pre?selected applicants): May 2015
(tentatively 18-21 May)
Start of the program: 1st October 2015.

Applicants have to submit the complete scholarship application as
detailed at the website. Successful candidates will then be invited to
start their admission process at the University of Salzburg.

We offer a great working atmosphere as well as remuneration according
to the Austrian University collective
bargaining agreement (yearly gross salary: € 27.944,--). Contracts
will be awarded for three years with
an extension option under defined circumstances. It is foreseen to
spend one semester at one of 14
pre-selected partner Universities worldwide.
