Dear Colleagues

[UTF-8?]I’d be most grateful if you could circulate below research
opportunities in your networks, and encourage willing and capable candidates
to apply!

Many thanks and festive end of year wishes,

++ PhD post: mobile location-aware and responsive interfaces ++

The Geographic Information Visualization and Analysis (GIVA) group at the
University of Zurich invites applications for a doctoral research position in
the context of the ERC Advanced Project GeoViSense, lead by the GIVA group
head and PI Sara Irina Fabrikant. This project, at the interface of GIScience
(geovisual analytics) and neuro-cognitive science aims to study how we make
space-time decisions with geographic information displays (GIDs) in varying
mobile decision making contexts, and to develop respective display design
guidelines for future user, task, and context-responsive GIDs to better
support efficient and effective space-time decision making on the go.

We seek a highly self-motivated researcher who will work efficiently and
effectively on an interdisciplinary and collaborative research project
involving mobile location-aware interfaces. Applications from women and
under-represented groups are especially encouraged. A completed MSc (by
thesis) in Geography and/or a closely related discipline (e.g., Psychology,
Cognitive|Neuro Science, Computer|Data Science, etc.) is required. You will be
interested in carrying out a PhD, empirically examining the role of user,
task, and changing context factors for mobile decision making with
location-aware geographic information displays. You will have a good standard
of written and spoken English. Knowledge of German, whilst not required, would
be an advantage. Ideally, the substantive domains of contribution within
GIScience include geographic information visualization/geovisual analytics,
spatial cognition, quantitative (empirical) research methods, and related
areas. A background in empirical data collection (indoors|outdoors),
quantitative data analyses, and programming for mobile applications would be
an asset.  The successful candidate will be hired on a 1-year contract
(starting February 1st, 2018 or soon thereafter), which will be extended to
the nominal 4-year PhD period after positive evaluation.

For informal thematic inquiries about this position contact Prof. Sara Irina
Fabrikant, Email: sara.fabrikant at geo.uzh.ch (subject: GeoViSense PhD), or by
phone: +41-44-635-5150.

Applications must include a motivation letter, a CV, transcripts, and the
contact information of two referees. Apply digitally to: Human Resources,
Department of Geography, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstr. 190, CH-8057
Zurich, Switzerland, Email: secretary.giva at geo.uzh.ch (subject: GeoViSense
PhD), phone: +41-44-635-5151. Review of applications will begin in January
2018, and will continue until the position is filled.
