We are looking for a motivated researcher with a proven ability to carry out and publish independent research in a field relevant to our group’s core research strengths. These include Geographic Information Retrieval and the use of natural language, be it sourced from user generated content, unstructured text or citizen science. We aim to develop theoretically grounded, societally relevant approaches, which broaden access to geographic information and allow decision making to better account for diverse ways of understanding the world, with a particular focus on the natural environment.
