This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: Spatial
Analysis & Modeling and Hazards, Risks and Disasters .
Prospective Ph.D. students interested in natural hazards and
vulnerability modeling are invited to apply for a graduate research
assistantship beginning in Summer or Fall 2014 at the University of Iowa.
The position is through the Department of Geographical and Sustainability
Sciences, working with Dr. Eric Tate. The research is supported by an NSF
grant to investigate new theoretical, statistical, and geospatial approaches
for improving the reliability and utility of social vulnerability
indicators. Students with a background in spatial analysis, social
vulnerability processes, hazard mitigation, and/or demographic analysis are
particularly well suited for this research.
Grant funding is available for two years, with renewal in year 3 with
satisfactory progress. The position includes a monthly stipend, tuition
waiver, health benefits, and travel funds for conference presentations.
If this sounds like a project you'd like work on, please contact me
([log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]>) to discuss the position and the
geography program at Iowa. In your e-mail, please include a current CV and
a description of your research interests. Applications to our graduate
program are due by February 1, 2014 and all regular admission requirements
must be met. For additional information about the graduate program in
