Post doc/PhD: Geographical Information System (1,0 fte)

(Utrecht), 38 hours per week Utrecht University


Job description

Post doc/PhD: Geographical Information System (GIS)
The candidate will be using geographical information systems to estimate historical and current exposure to ELF and RF electromagnetic fields from base-stations and powerlines for in particular a prospective cohort study consisting of 250.000 members of the general population. The methods to be developed should take into account both exposures at home, at work and elsewhere (commuting, etc.). Field studies in which actual EMF exposure will be measured in order to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of GIS-based exposure assessment methods will be integral part of the work.

The candidate will publish the findings as papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. These papers will form the basis of the PhD thesis for the PhD student.


University Graduate
For a Post doc position:
•PhD degree or within one year of obtaining PhD degree in the field of GIS and/or geostatistics with a focus on health related issues.
•Established and relevant research focus and continuing research plan.
•International experience and willingness to build a Dutch and international network.
For a PhD position:
We are looking for an enthusiastic graduate with a background (MSc) in the field of Geo Informatics with specialisation in the use of geographic information systems (GIS). The candidate should have strong organisational, communication and writing skills (in English).

In both cases we are looking for a team player who is able to work independently. Experience in the field of characterization and measurement of physical agents through GIS methods and a strong statistical/methodological interest and experience will be an advantage.
