University of Nottingham and Newcastle University, supported by Ordnance Survey, invites high-quality applications from UK and EU nationals for three fully funded 4-year (1+3) PhDs in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems for September 2020 entry.
The CDT will equip students with advanced knowledge and skills in geospatial data science and its application within interdisciplinary PhD research and the geospatial industries, leading to MRes (year 1) and PhD (year 4) qualifications.
The Geospatial Systems CDT will deliver a world-leading generation of engineers, scientists and practitioners trained in geospatial data science and its application within interdisciplinary PhD research on smart cities, urban and infrastructure resilience, spatial mobility (transport), energy systems, sustainable spatial planning, structural monitoring, social inclusion and healthy living, environmental applications, and the translation of geospatial methods to global challenges.
When studying with the CDT, students undertake a four year (1+3) PhD. In year 1 they will study towards an MRes in Geospatial Data Science and receive specialist joint training in spatial data capture, management, analysis, statistics, modelling and visualisation, along with the new computing technology and methods that are transforming the use of geospatial data. While in years 2 to 4 students will undertake their PhD research project. During their time with the CDT, all students engage with a range of CDT-wide cohort-based activities and Industry-informed training on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
