The Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) at the University of Münster, Germany is one of the top research centres in GI Science.  Its research draws from different disciplines including Computer Science, Geography and Mathematics.  Main research activities cover spatio-temporal modelling and processes, semantic interoperability, cognitive engineering as well as situated interaction and computing.

ifgi is currently accepting applications to its new Graduate School for its structured PhD programme and a DAAD scholarship.  Two out of four offered topics have a strong link to HCI in general, and we explicitly invite applicants with a background in this area to apply.  Detailed information about the open topics and the application procedure are available at

The deadline for applications is May 24, 2013.  Questions about the application procedure can be directed to Christoph Brox ([log in to unmask]).  Questions regarding specific topics should be directed to the corresponding research group leader - see

Münster is an old city in the North-West of Germany, close to the Dutch border and the North Sea.  It was recently voted most liveable city in the World, and has a large and diverse student population.  Münster is also the bike capital of Germany: there are more bikes than people, and the local river tops all alphabetical lists (it's called the 'Aa').
