The Conservation Biology Institute is hiring a full-time, permanent geospatial analyst to be a core technical member of our remote sensing and spatial modeling team. The ideal candidate will work closely with colleagues to apply a range of tools and technologies, including Google Earth Engine and ArcGIS ModelBuilder, to create customized spatial products for conservation, restoration, and natural resource management.
We are looking for a geospatial analyst with a strong background in GIS and remote sensing, demonstrated skills working with ArcGIS ModelBuilder and Google Earth Engine, the ability to communicate results clearly to expert and non-expert audiences, and an interest in working closely with a core team to translate cutting-edge science into effective, real world conservation solutions.
You will work on a diverse set of projects alongside other team members to gather and evaluate spatial data, create metadata, perform robust, innovative spatial modeling and remote sensing analyses, document your methodologies/code, and clearly communicate results through writing, visualizations, and maps to a diverse audience, including decision-makers and non-scientists.
We are looking for applicants with 2+ years of experience in geospatial analysis and remote sensing applications, with a post-baccalaureate GIS certificate, M.S., or several years work experience preferred.
We often take an iterative approach to project work, which requires close collaboration with team members to undertake analysis/modeling and to deliver results to clients through writing, visualizations, and maps. A background in ecology, conservation planning, natural resources management, or environmental applications preferred.
