Imagery Analyst (Agricultural / Ecological)

There is major potential for the expansion of agroforestry systems in the coming years and decades, and the Savanna Institute’s research team is working to prepare the improved tree crop varieties, better agroforestry practices, and refined ecosystem services estimates needed to support this scale-up. Digital imagery analysis, using a diversity of imagery types, methods, and scales, is fundamental to our plans.

In addition they will work with the agronomy and agroecology research program and with ecosystem services researchers.
