The Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNC-Charlotte) is inviting prospective master students to apply for a graduate assistantship beginning in Fall 2017 or Spring 2018.
The students will work on a project evaluating the merits of visualization techniques for spatial uncertainty, with application to the domain of public health. Specifically, the visualization of geocoding errors and space-time uncertainty.
Ideal candidates will have an interest in public health, GIS and geovisualization. Preferred qualifications include programming skills in Python, or Java. The candidates will join a team of students working in Center for Applied GIScience which has exceptional expertise in cutting-edge GIS, spatiotemporally explicit modeling, and big data analytics.
Information about the master program is attached to this email. Applications can be initiated at http://gradadmissions.uncc.
