Ordnance Survey and the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems invite high-quality applications for up to two 4-year PhD studentships at Newcastle University on:
(i) Multi-scale multi-domain geospatial data modelling: this topic will develop the core concepts that allow different spatial domains of interest to be seamlessly linked to allow cross-scale and cross domain analytics and simulation. The PhD will develop methods that link domains from internal BIM building scale models, through to the city scale and across domains of interest (energy, transport, water, environmental, societal, digital etc.).
(ii) Modelling electric vehicle impacts: this topic will investigate the spatial interdependency between electric vehicles and energy demand/supply. It will develop analysis and modelling to understand how projected growth in electric vehicles will change electricity demand and consider the supply networks that will be required to roll out charging points. The PhD will have an opportunity to work with the Future Mobility research group and National Centre for Energy Systems Integration (CESI) who partner the CDT.
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 have an opportunity to attend the Ordnance Survey PhD workshops.
In year 1 students will receive joint training in Geospatial Data Science covering spatial data capture, management, analysis, statistics, modelling and visualisation, along with the new computing technology and methods that are transforming the use of geospatial data. In years 2 to 4 students will undertake their PhD research project and a range of CDT-wide cohort-based activities and Industry-informed training on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
Each PhD covers full fees, maintenance stipend and a generous Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) for travel, conference attendance and international partner university/industry placements.
