A friend of mine sent me this ad to share it among my networks, so here it is…quite a nice offer. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is looking for PhD Candidate in Geographic Information Science and Natural Resource Management.
Yesterday I had the privilege to present some of my research at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, where I am currently as a visiting scholar via the Erasmus+ programme. I lectured for about 100 undergraduates in Geography programme and my presentation dealt with history of GIS, rise of Participatory GIS and how mental maps and GeoParticipation as concepts play and important role in current crowdsourcing and citizen science.
In case somebody is interested, you can find my presentation here (From Mental Maps to GeoParticipation). The talk was partly based on my paper published in the Special Issue of the Cartographic Journal.
Maybe some of you can be interested in this offer:
CLOSING DATE: Friday, March 10th, 2017
ACME: An International Journal for Critical Geographies would like to invite applications from anyone interested in becoming an Editor for the journal. We are seeking new editors to join our editorial collective and are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in any of the following thematic areas: critical urban studies; environmental geographies; critical race theory; sexuality studies and queer theories; critical creative geographies and methods; political ecology and climate change; critical dis/ability studies and health geographies; critical physical geography and quantitative methods; and poverty, housing, and homelessness. The Collective is especially encouraging applications from workers in positions of precarity and/or from the Global South, as well as those who are from marginalized backgrounds and/or are first generation scholars (bearing in mind that all who apply will be considered). We are also keen to maintain our intercontinental reach, and welcome applications from scholars based in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and Latin America in particular. A commitment to mutuality, collective work, conviviality, and revolutionary punctuality is highly desirable. ACME publishes in 5 main languages (English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish) and accordingly, individuals who can also handle submissions in one or more of these other key languages will be looked upon favorably.
