MOVE seeks PhD students

The MOVE@UCSB Laboratory at the Geography Department at UC Santa Barbara is seeking PhD students. We are looking for talented students with a strong quantitative background in GIScience, Geography, Computer Science, or Data Science, and interest in movement and mobility. Our group focuses on the study of movement using data science and geo-computational approaches, including movement data analytics, pattern mining, machine learning, geovisualization, -AI, modeling, and simulation. Please see our research areas for more information. The students will be engaged in multidisciplinary research to develop data science approaches to study movement in different contexts including human mobility, migration, health geography, movement ecology, and natural hazards and earth system sciences. Please find more information about the application process and the UCSB Geography Department here. The application deadline is December 15th, 2019. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr. Somayeh Dodge (sdodge[at] before submitting your application.
