Open Postdoc Fellow Position in Geospatial Data Analysis at Harvard

This position is with the Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA)/IQSS at Harvard. The project is to conduct research on the design and development of an online platform for geospatial data management, analysis and visualization. The platform is the core infrastructure for case-based study and training.

Since 2019, the project  has evolved from China Data Lab to Spatial Data Lab, a joint initiative between Harvard University’s Center for Geographic Analysis, China Data Institute and Future Data Lab. The project’s objective is to enable researchers to share their spatial data with others online, conduct spatial data analysis with GIS and statistics tools on the cloud, and develop workflow-based data driven study cases. The platform also supports training programs on spatiotemporal data analysis for economic, social, public health, urban planning and other research subjects.
