The Geolingual Studies Team is searching for a student assistant (Studentische Hilfskraft)
The Geolingual Studies Team, led by Prof. Carolin Biewer and Prof. Hannes Taubenböck at the Department of English Linguistics and the Earth Observation Research Hub of the University of Würzburg, is looking for a dedicated and motivated student assistant to join our group. In our team, we integrate concepts and methods from Geography (e.g., remote sensing) and Digital Humanities (e.g., natural language processing) to assess the structure, usage, and social perception of space in urban areas. We aim to generate evidence-based knowledge to contribute to build more livable cities.
As student assistant in our group, you will gain hands-on experience in the integration of heterogeneous data, such as remote sensing, social media, census, and survey data. Your tasks will include the acquisition, processing, and visualization of geotagged datasets, applying spatial analysis and natural language processing techniques by means of programming languages. The position will consist of at least 40 working hours per month.
We are looking for a problem-solving oriented master student with a strong interest in urban research. The ideal candidate will be able to work independently, yet effectively communicate and collaborate with the team. Experience analyzing remote sensing or text data with R and/or Python is needed. There is the possibility to conduct a master’s thesis as part of this position.
