Looking for unrivalled PhD funding for research into smart cities, social inclusion, environmental sustainability or global challenges in the digital revolution? “Everything happens somewhere”, and so a PhD in Geospatial Systems with elective interdisciplinary application may be just what you are looking for!
University of Nottingham and Newcastle University, supported by 40+ industry partners, invite high-quality applications for approximately 10 fully-funded 4-year (1+3) PhDs in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems for September 2021 entry.
The Geospatial Systems CDT is training a world-leading generation of engineers, scientists and practitioners with advanced knowledge and skills in geospatial data science, including big data and artificial intelligence approaches. Successful applicants will conduct interdisciplinary PhD research with elective application into one or more of: smart cities; urban and infrastructure resilience; spatial mobility (transport); energy systems; sustainable spatial planning; structural monitoring; social inclusion and healthy living; environmental applications; the translation of geospatial methods to global challenges. Students will graduate with both a MRes in Geospatial Data Science (Year 1) and a PhD in Geospatial Systems (Year 4).
