[Job opening] PhD and Master positions in GIScience and GeoAI

Dr. Liping Yang is offering two (1 Ph.D. and 1 Master) funded, full-time graduate scholarships in geospatial data science and geospatial artificial intelligence. Particular topics of interest include

    • Novel methods for analyzing structured and unstructured geospatial data (such as text and images),
    • Information and image retrieval for geographic and historical data,
    • Exploratory search user interfaces powered by computer vision
      and machine learning,
    • Artificial intelligence for geographic knowledge discovery,
    • Spatial representation and reasoning.

Enthusiastic candidates with interests related to these topics are highly encouraged to apply; working experience with at least one programming language (Python, Java, C/C++, JavaScript etc.) is a prerequisite for the positions, but the most important quality is a desire to do creative original research at the intersection of GIScience, computer science, and mathematics.

Students working with Dr. Liping Yang, will have great opportunities for summer interns and/or graduate assistantships at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL); after graduation (with proper qualification), can be recommended to work at LANL.

To apply and for more Ph.D. and M.S. positions in GIScience and geography available at the Department of
Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of New Mexico, please check out the PDF here.
