PhD and MSc positions available

Z_GIS- Centre for Geoinformatics and Department of Geography and Geology

University of Salzburg, Austria

3 year PhD position for the project “Scales and hierarchies in landform classification” SCALA

Applications are invited for a three year doctoral position within the project SCALA. The objective of SCALA is to develop a coherent framework of nested hierarchical organization of topography. For geomorphometry and all fields that need morphometry as a boundary condition, innovative techniques supported by fieldwork will be developed and applied. Framed within multi-scale fuzzy analysis, the methodology will: 1. differentiate characteristic scales associated with specific parameters and/or parameters behaviour across scales; 2. test the significance of morphometric patterns across scales; 3. set up a nested hierarchy of landforms, both morphometric and morphologic relevant.

The selectee will both be staff member of Z_GIS and a PhD student at the Department of Geography and Geology and jointly supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Blaschke and Prof. Dr. Lothar Schrott with the assistance of Dr. Lucian Dragut, the leading PostDoc scientist in this project. PhD studies at the Science Faculty of the University of Salzburg are 3years Bologna-compliant studies with 180 ECTS, whereby 150 ECTS are foreseen for the Thesis.

The applicant is expected to have expertise in the field of Physical Geography/Geomorphology and Geoinformation/GIS. Programming language skills and background in digital image processing in Definiens software are a major plus. The position is available for three years, 30 hours/week. The gross salary is 24.740 EUR/year (14 times approx. 1767.- ) for 2008 with adaptations the years after) according to the guidelines of the FWF (www.fwf.ac.at) the approximative net salary can be calculated using the webservice www.bmf.gv.at/service/anwend/steuerberech/bruttonetto/_start.htm

Position to start as early as possible, preferred start: June or July.

Application packages including CV and cover letter should be sent via email to Prof. Dr. Thomas Blaschke (thomas.blaschke@sbg.ac.at) and Dr. Lucian Drăguţ (lucian.dragut@sbg.ac.at).

A first review deadline of the applications is the 28th of April, 2008, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
