The PhD position is made available by the research project Data Management Foundations for Indoor LBS funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark. The overall objective of this project is to establish general data management foundations and design novel data related technologies/prototypes for indoor LBS applications. For the scholarship, we are looking for a PhD student who is qualified to undertake supervised independent research in the area of spatial data management, in particular on the research topics of refinement, querying and analytics of uncertain indoor location data. The research activities will require knowledge and skills about database, data mining and/or machine learning. Knowledge about outdoor/indoor localization will be a plus for the research. The research results are expected to be demonstrated in prototypes as well as to be published in prestigious international outlets. Further, the PhD student will be associated with the research group PLIS https://forskning.ruc.dk/en/organisations/programmering-logik-og-intelligente-systemer.

The Doctoral School
You will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of People and Technology and associated with the program in Information Technology.

The Doctoral School for People and Technology frames research that seeks to address sustainability often by applying experimental approaches and situating the individuals active and learning involvement. The research comprises approaches of a human, societal, health and information technological character and often applying planning, interventions and design-oriented subject areas. The Doctoral School has 5 PhD programmes with each of their focus points: Information Technology; Learning, Working life and Social innovation; Research in Health and Society; Social Psychology of Everyday Life and Society, Space and Technology. You will be associated with the program in Information Technology. Read more here https://ruc.dk/en/doctoral-school-people-and-technology.
