PhD Studies...

… are more than educational programmes! We offer a “education through research” PhD programme. If you are seeking for PhD research in the wider field of Geoinformatics and Geographic Information Science, you should be thinking about your future: what inspires and challenges you – the Doctoral College GIScience programme may have the right offer.

The Doctoral College GIScience builds on the strong foundations of the doctoral programme in Geoinformatics and GIScience at the University of Salzburg and offers an excellent doctoral education to outstanding students from all over the world.

It fosters the improved integration of existing research clusters across disciplinary boundaries, especially between the geo-disciplines and other sciences but also with formalized ties into computing and the social sciences.

Based on its research excellence and the unique setting in the GIScience triangle between university research – non-university research – industry research (including the Research Studio iSPACE, more researchers need to be trained at doctoral level than ever before, if the ambitious objectives concerning enhanced research capacity, innovation and qualitative growth are to be met.
