PhD Studentship Opportunity

The EPSRC funded project “Challenging RISK: Achieving Resilience by Integrating Societal and Technical Knowledge” focusses on aspects of earthquake, fire hazards and community engagement. Within this project there is an opportunity for a suitable candidate to be funded for a PhD studentship. The studentship will be supervised by Professor Mordechai (Muki) Haklay (with further support and guidance from Patrick Rickles) and will start in the autumn of 2014, within UCL’s Extreme Citizen Science group (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/excites).  For more information click here.
