Your tasks:

A detailed synthesis of global land-use pattern and their dynamics is needed to assess biodiversity, land use and food security issues. To jointly analyze such heterogenous mostly gridded global data, a generic ontology (“Essential Land use Variables”) shall be developed, that supports meta-data generation and leads to identification of possible circular reasoning in data synthesis. This post is specifically responsible for developing test-cases characterizing global biodiversity, land use and socio-economy. You will be supporting project management, support open-science collaborative data science solutions and will lead and contribute to project publications.
