Two postdoctoral research fellow positions at the University of California Santa Barbara
The MOVE Laboratory (http://move.geog.ucsb.edu) at the Geography Department at UC Santa Barbara is seeking applications for two postdoctoral research fellowswith an anticipated start date as early as 15 January 2020. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in GIScience, Geography, Cartography, Computer Science, or Data Science. The successful candidates will have strong quantitative and analytical skills and research experience in areas such as machine learning, movement pattern mining, artificial intelligence, geovisualization, visual analytics, spatial cognition,  human behavior studies. Experiences and knowledge of experiment design, especially in the area of spatial cognition is desirable. The postdoctoral fellows will be engaged in multidisciplinary research on two different projects to develop and evaluate cartographic and data science approaches to studying movement in different contexts including human mobility, migration, health geography, movement ecology, and natural hazards and earth system sciences. Please find more information about the positions here. The review of applications begins on 15 December 2019 and it will continue until the positions are filled. For any inquiry or to submit your application, please contact Dr. Somayeh Dodge (sdodge@ucsb.edu). Ph.D. positions at the University of California Santa Barbara
