Geospatial Analytics PhD Program(scholarship)


 NC State University is inviting applications for several recently funded assistantship positions for their interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Geospatial Analytics. The positions are expected to commence from Fall 2023 and will be fully funded, including a salary of $30,000, benefits, and tuition waiver, which is renewable for up to four years. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the positions will be filled on a rolling basis.

The Geospatial Analytics program offers diverse assistantship positions, which includes:

Developing Invasive Species Modeling

Geospatial Analytics for Natural Resource Challenges

Spatial Social Network Analysis for Disaster Recovery

Land Change Modeling

Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling

Studying the Ecological Impact of Oyster Restoration

It is worth noting that the last position is only open to U.S. citizens/permanent residents who identify as a part of a group that has been historically underrepresented in the sciences.

The Geospatial Analytics program offers a multidisciplinary approach, with advising from over a dozen departments across the university. The curriculum comprises core courses in subjects like remote sensing, geovisualization, and data mining, and discipline-specific electives. Students also get hands-on learning through professional seminars, conference travel opportunities, and geospatial externships.

The Geospatial Analytics program is guided by values like prioritizing student mental health and well-being, data ethics, environmental and social justice, collaboration, community, and equity. The university aims to increase the representation of historically underrepresented students in U.S. higher education.
