The GIScience Center at the Department of Geography jointly with the University Research Priority Program (URPP) “Dynamics of Healthy Aging” at the University of Zurich, invites applications for a PhDs position on the ‘Analysis of Mobility and Activity Data’.
The PhD student position will be embedded within a joint project to study real-world space use, mobility, and motor activities in older adults, which are seen as central predictors of maintaining physical and cognitive health into old age. Using mobility, activity and context data collected from multiple sensors on a large number of older age test persons, we combine methods of dynamic space use analysis adapted from Geographic Information Science (GIScience) with the longitudinal methodology of gerontology.
The position will entail carrying out data-oriented computational research, with a focus on adapting or developing new methods of movement analysis.
