The GIScience Center of the Department of Geography at the University of
Zurich invites applications for a PhD student to join our interdisciplinary
research team. The GIScience Center at the Department of Geography hosts
several research groups working on diverse topics including movement analysis,
digital cartography and mobile systems, language and space, geographic
information retrieval, digital terrain modeling, uncertainty modeling,
geovisual analytics, spatial cognition and urban informatics.

The advertised PhD student position will be expected to contribute to a
ENVIRONMENTS. Possible topics include the development of methods for the
analysis of large spatial networks, the development of methods contributing to
the understanding of mobility in indoor spaces, or methods enabling a
systematic investigation of the functional structure of cities. Using
computational approaches exploiting large datasets, the PhD student will
develop algorithms and measures applicable to the specific research and will
validate the results using diverse experimental approaches. The successful
candidate is expected to choose a research focus and write a detailed research
proposal within the first 6 months of his/her starting day.

We are seeking a highly motivated, creative thinker passionate about science
and with a desire to develop a research career. Applicants will have completed
an excellent final degree (Master or equivalent) in a relevant field, such as
Geographic Information Science, Geography, Computer Science, Information
Science, or Geomatics before appointment. We further expect knowledge of
network analysis, spatial analysis, statistics and/or data mining; and basic
programming skills and/or formal methods, as well as a willingness to develop
these further. Applicants should have a very good standard of written and
spoken English. Fluency in, or a willingness to learn, one or more of
Switzerland’s national languages would also be an advantage. The successful
candidate will also have an autonomous and self-reliant working style; high
motivation to work collaboratively within a team; and a genuine interest in
interdisciplinary collaboration.

We offer excellent working conditions, a stimulating and vibrant research
environment and Zurich’s high quality of life. The candidate will be part of
the Zurich Graduate School in Geography providing academic and professional
support to doctoral students in Geography. The PhD candidate will be
supervised by Dr. Martin Tomko and will be a member of the GIS Unit within the
GIScience Center (www.geo.uzh.ch/gis).

To apply, send your curriculum vitae, a motivation statement, transcripts, and
contact details for two referees (including e-mail addresses) in a single PDF
document with the applicant’s name as file name by 15 May 2015 to
annica.mandola at geo.uzh.ch (subject: “PhD in Urban GIScience”). For further
questions, contact Martin Tomko (martin.tomko at geo.uzh.ch).

The position will start on 01 July 2015, or as soon as possible thereafter,
and is funded for three years, with an option for an extension of up to four
