The Resilience Team within the Moore Center division of Conservation International conducts high impact innovative and applied research to support communities, businesses, and countries in mitigating and adapting to climate change. The group uses interdisciplinary science approaches and cutting-edge technological resources to support its mission through science innovation, tool development, and capacity building in close collaboration with key global and local partners. The Resilience Team is seeking an early career land system scientist with experience in remote sensing and programming to support a multi-institution multi-scale project to enhance land degradation monitoring at national and sub-national scales. The successful candidate will make contributions that may include research and implementation of innovative monitoring methods for tropical forests at fine temporal and spatial scales, developing methods for assessing vulnerability to droughts in relation to land degradation, guiding the development of a mobile application tool, performing field verification, and implementing capacity building efforts both in person and on line. The successful candidate will be driven and motivated to work in an organization which uses the best scientific knowledge to support nature conservation, and as part of the Moore Center for Science, that person will be part of the team generating that critical knowledge.
