The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Geospatial Systems invites high-quality applications for a 4-year PhD studentship on Urban Digital Twins at Newcastle University funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). We welcome applicants from a diverse range of academic and industry related backgrounds including Engineering, Geographical Sciences, Computing, Mathematics and Architecture and Planning.
The PhD will investigate how to represent and model complex urban environments using digital twin concepts in order to understand urban dynamics and provide real-time situational awareness. This PhD will include the opportunity to work closely with Dstl, including placement opportunities.
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.
