GIScience- Geographic Information Science
University of Salzburg | Austria
Doctoral College | DK-GIScience
A new long term GIScience doctoral school was awarded to the University of Salzburg under the prestigious and highly competitive ‘DK’ framework of Austria’s National Science Fund (FWF).
Three interconnected, interdisciplinary, research clusters have been defined:
Representations and Data Models is focused on research into the conceptual modelling of space, spatial features and phenomena, and provides a spatial view of various categories of physical and abstract information objects in order to reveal the potential power of the ‘spatial perspective’.
Time and Process research will leverage the increasing availability of real-time sensor data, the importance of process-oriented modelling, and will address the need for temporal modelling beyond simple discrete time slices.
Spatialization, Media and Society considers user perspectives and utilizes geospatial communication as a hypotheses generator for geospatial research: cognitive processes lead to mental maps which are highly relevant for actions, which in turn modify physical and societal spaces.Supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the program offers 9 scholarships for doctoral researchers at the Paris Lodron University Salzburg. The positions are in accordance with the regulations of the FWF (www.fwf.ac.at) and the gross salary is 26278.- Euro per year, regardless of age and family situation.
