Career moves towards Middle East

Adrijana Car, senior researcher at the ÖAW GIScience Department and director of international UNIGIS programs at the University of Salzburg, has been appointed to the position of Associate Professor in GIS at the Faculty of Economics, Department of Sustainable Tourism and Regional Development, German University of Technology – GUtech, Muscat, Oman (GUtech is affiliated with RWTH Aachen University).

GUtech is not completely new to me; as a visiting lecturer I have already taught students at the Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Science. I will now represent GIS at undergraduate and graduate levels. My research will focus on GIScience & Technology, in particular related to conceptual modeling, spatio-temporal analysis and geovisualization with GIScience acting as a common spatial language“.

Prof. Car will continue to be connected with Salzburg as chair of the GI_Forum program committee, through research in Space-Time projects and within the international UNIGIS framework. We wish her all the best for establishing a strong education and research presence in Oman! Congratulations, Adrijana – and thanks for contributing so much to Z_GIS and ÖAW over many years!
