Vacancy: Professor in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University Copenhagen

Professor in Geoinformatics
At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Department of Planning, Aalborg University Copenhagen, one or more positions as Professor in Geoinformatics is open for appointment from 1 February 2020 or soon hereafter.  The field of the Department for Planning includes development and planning in a broad sense, and thereby it ranges from the social science aspects of development like environmental management, physical planning, sector planning, land management, to technical subjects such as surveying and geoinformatics.
The position requires research qualifications at Senior Doctoral level within a broad range of fields related to Geoinformatics like spatial data infrastructure, geospatial analysis, geovisualisation, geospatial big data, and artificial intelligence applied in a geospatial context. In addition, it is expected the applicant has experience in applying geoinformatics methods in solving current societal challenges like climate change, migration, loss of biodiversity, and urbanisation, which are important research topics at the Department of Planning.

It is expected that the candidate has experiences with external funding from competitive sources. 

Teaching will primarily be in geoinformatics as part of our master programme in Land Management, Surveying and Mapping, but also in other study programmes at the University may be relevant. Teaching as well as research is carried out in an international environment regarding students, staff, and research projects.
