As a Geospatial Specialist, you will help JNCC deploy habitat and feature mapping methods, develop products to detect change in habitat condition or management, and provide biophysical parameters for environmental modelling. The post would contribute to projects across the work of the team, and to projects led by other teams in JNCC, bringing technical evidence skills and insight into integrating evidence on land use and land use change in the UK and overseas, mainstreaming biodiversity into Official Development Assistance, and contributing innovative solutions to country monitoring programmes. The post will focus on geospatial data analyses but will also work collaboratively with other analytical, data science and data infrastructure skills across the Ecosystems Analysis and Digital and Data Solutions Teams. Recent examples of geospatial data analyses include national-scale habitat mapping, coastal monitoring in a changing climate, detecting impacts on priority habitats, and developing national indicators of woodland condition. Whilst much of the work of the team is terrestrial, some work on marine environments is likely.
