For our Faculty Fellows and the Center for Geospatial Analytics, collaboration is a win-win. Fellows have access to the center’s world-class facilities, extensive computing infrastructure, and valuable financial resources. In turn, they advise Ph.D. students, conduct research projects through the center, collaborate on research proposals for external funding, teach a core geospatial course, and regularly participate in leadership meetings and the Geospatial Forum.
Faculty Fellows from over a dozen academic departments across NC State mentor students with a passion for applying geospatial approaches to complex problems. Prospective applicants to our Ph.D. in Geospatial Analytics are encouraged to contact Faculty Fellows to identify potential advisor(s) and discuss shared research interests.
NC State faculty with great potential for impactful engagement in geospatial research and education are selected to join the Faculty Fellows program by the center’s steering committee. Prospective fellows may be nominated by colleagues or nominate themselves for a three-year term with potential for renewal.Browse the Fellows directory
