Summer studentship available in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering
5 July 2012
A paid opportunity for a student to help investigate the use of open source Geographic Information Software (GIS) in the undergraduate curriculum has arisen in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE).
Liz Jones, Teaching Fellow and Geomatic Systems Manager at CEGE, is offering a summer studentship which will lead to the creation of e-learning content for GIS practicals in spatial analysis and site selection using open source software – specifically Quantum GIS (QGIS) and Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS).
In addition to the production of new teaching material, a reflective report must be submitted of the student’s personal experiences using the open source packages, particularly in comparison with ArcMap. This project is expected to last six to eight weeks, with a negotiable start date.
Liz says: “This is a great opportunity for the chosen student to have a direct impact on curriculum development within our undergraduate engineering programmes whilst also broadening his or her own skills in GIS analysis.”
The work can be undertaken remotely but with regular meetings via Skype. The salary will be £220 per week. Ideally, applicants should have undertaken the Year 1 and Year 2 undergraduate core GIS practicals in ArcMap, but other experience may also be considered. Experience of working with QGIS is not necessary; proficiency in writing reports is a must. Please send your CV (of no more than two pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date is 5pm on Wednesday July 11th 2012.
