and

A  PhD Scholarship in Urban Futures Agent-based Modelling investigating the use of an Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) to broaden our understanding of the RESIDe study data and translate findings to new housing developments.

Each scholarship will provide a stipend of $30,000 per annum for three years. International applications welcome.

The RMIT Centre for Urban Research will also be hosting a free AURIN Workshop on the 30th June.  This is a great opportunity to break down the AURIN Workbench and other spatial tools and to dive deep into the data access and analytics available through our platform.
