City growth is something that happens in high-rise as much as horizontally. We are measuring the evolving floor space density in Chinese urban areas over the last couple of decades. Our goal is large scale time-series data on buildup in all Chinese cities for further research in urban economics. To achieve this we employ deep learning algorithms on various satellite imagery sources. The following link leads to a first milestone.
You will build up a large library of (mainly optical) satellite imagery and build a pipeline to preprocess it to the extent that we can feed it into a predicting model.
The prospective candidate is expected to support paper writing of the team. We expect the candidate to cope well with deadlines.
You can start as soon as possible. We encourage students from study programs with a focus on remote sensing, GIS, and urban planning to apply. You must be enrolled at a Swiss University and must be willing to work 15h/week on average during the semester. It is possible to work more during the semester breaks (up to 40 hours possible). We handle working time flexibly such that you can take time to study for exams or fulfil other obligations for your studies while coordinating with the team when tasks need to be completed. Ideally, we are looking for individuals who can stay employed as a student assistant for at least one year (e.g., while taking courses for their Bachelor's or Master's degree), possibly longer.
We look forward to receiving your online application .
Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
