Citizen Science Researcher (fulltime)Posted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2020-Feb-28
The departments of Geo-Information Processing (GIP) and Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-Information Management (PGM) are active in the domain of citizen science, an emerging field of research that aims at active engagement of citizens in a research process such as data collection or data validation. The two departments look at it from different but complementary perspectives. Typically, GIP provides a technological/methodological perspective, while PGM emphasizes the participatory process and planning perspective. GIP and PGM wish to make their citizen science activities more explicit. Therefore, we look for a researcher with a good mix of technological and social science know-how and a deep interest in facilitating public participation in scientific research as well as in exploring the broad concept of citizen science from multiple perspectives.
