Funded MS & PhD Positions in Computational GIS - Texas A&M University, College Station
The Department of Geography at Texas A&M University has funded M.S. and Ph.D. positions available for motivated students interested in pursuing fundamental or applied research in any area of computationally-based Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Topical areas of interest include but are not limited to spatio-temporal algorithm design and evaluation, mobile-GIS and Volunteered Geographic Information Systems (VGI), very large spatio-temporal databases (BIG data), spatio-temporal data mining and analyses, spatial uncertainty representation and use, natural language processing (NLP), and all forms of Web- and Cyber-enabled GIS development and use. Candidates seeking to apply these technologies in domain-specific research areas are also encouraged to apply. Areas of interest include but are not limited to HealthGIS, planning, transportation, and emergency management & response.
Interested students are invited to apply for a graduate research assistantship in the Department of Geography at Texas A&M University under Dr. Daniel. Goldberg to begin in Fall 2014. Preference will be given to prospective Ph.D. students with experience and background in GIS computing and databases.
Interested candidates should contact Daniel Goldberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the positions and the research plans of the student to ensure a match with ongoing and planned research initiatives.
