PhD on 3D Data Fusion of Complex Environments in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems funded by Ordnance Survey

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems invites high-quality applications for 1 award of a 4-year PhD studentship in the area of 3D data fusion of complex environments. This will start September 2019, be sponsored by the Ordnance Survey and run for 4 years at the University of Nottingham.We are looking to recruit a graduate from a wide range of backgrounds that could include Engineering, Geographical/Environmental sciences, Mathematics, Computer Science and related disciplines.
The PhD on 3D data fusion for complex environments will develop novel approaches to fusion of 3D geospatial data, from traditional airborne photogrammetry but using oblique cameras, to high- and low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), vehicle-mounted roadside survey vans, and the streams of data from connected and autonomous vehicles, through to indoor mapping technologies. The aim of this project is to explore different requirements for 3D data from different application sectors and use this to drive research into a flexible framework to manage and integrate 3D data from different sources. Ordnance Survey will supply data, use cases and research support. Students will have an opportunity to undertake a placement within Ordnance Survey of between 1 and 3 months, during the PhD, and they will also have the opportunity to attend the Ordnance Survey PhD workshop events.
The Geospatial Systems CDT will help deliver a world leading generation of engineers, scientists and practitioners in geospatial data science and its applications within interdisciplinary PhD research into smart cities, urban and infrastructure resilience, spatial mobility (transport), energy systems, sustainable spatial planning, structural monitoring, social inclusion and healthy living, environmental applications and the translation of geospatial methods to meet global challenges. In year 1 students will receive joint training between Nottingham and Newcastle Universities (the two partners in the CDT) in spatial data capture, management, analysis, statistics, modelling and visualisation, along with the new computing technology and methods that are transforming the uses of geospatial data. In years 2 to 4 students will undertake their own PhD research project, as well as benefiting from a range of CDT-wide, cohort-based activities and Industry-informed training on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
The award is available to UK/EU applicants only. Depending on how you meet the EPSRC’s eligibility criteria, you may be entitled to a full or a partial award. We are looking for a wide range of applicants who have a minimum of a 2:1 degree in Engineering, Geographical/Environmental Sciences, Mathematics, Computer Sciences or related disciplines. Full UK/EU fees (eligibility criteria applies to EU students) and an annual living allowance of £15,009 (awarded at the 2019/20 UKRI rate) are provided. A Research Training grant (that provides costs for consumables, travel, conferences), and placement opportunities with Ordnance Survey are also supported.
To apply to Nottingham, select the ‘Apply for a course’ option at the MyNottingham portal and follow the instructions on the University Postgraduate Study page. Please attach a covering letter and CV. In the covering letter, please quote ‘Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy’ as the reference, mention the CDT and Professor Stuart Marsh, the Nottingham CDT Director. Also state the PhD topic of interest as 3D Data Fusion and describe how your interests and experience relate to the CDT. Attach degree transcripts and certificates and, if English is not your first language, a copy of your English language qualifications.
Find out more by contacting the Nottingham Director of the CDT, Professor Stuart Marsh, or visiting:https://research.ncl.ac.uk/geospatial-systems/
Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion lies at the heart of our CDT, including ensuring flexibility in all activities so that CDT participants with caring and family responsibilities are able to participate fully.
Deadline: Monday 8th July
