We have two fully-funded PhD opportunities at the cross of demography/GIScience and are looking for candidates for these positions.
Both projects will investigate short- and long-term effects of air pollution and extreme weather events on health and mortality, one in the wider context of UK and the second one focusing on ethnic groups in Scotland. Projects will require development of new data fusion methods for longitudinal and environmental data (meteorological, air quality data, etc.) and application and innovation in spatial statistics to deal with large fused data sets.

Both positions start in October 2019, but have different DLs (10 April/10 May 2019).
