Job: Postdoctoral Researcher at the Geographic Data Science Lab and the Alan Turing Institute

Published on

The Geographic Data Science Lab, in partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, is searching for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on an exciting project that blends urban studies, artificial intelligence and remote sensing.

You will work on a project that will propose an urban grammar to describe urban form and that will develop artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to learn such a grammar from satellite imagery. Urban form has critical implications for economic productivity, social (in)equality, and the sustainability of both local finances and the environment. Yet, current approaches to measuring the morphology of cities are fragmented and coarse, impeding their appropriate use in decision making and planning.

You should have a PhD in Computer Science, Geographic Information Science, Quantitative Social Science or other related quantitative discipline. The post is available from 1 July 2020 until 30 June 2022.

Closing Date: 21 May 2020

£34,805 - £36,914 pa
