Are you a specialist in digital soil mapping with extensive experience in geo-information science? And do you have a passion for innovation and able to help us develop state of the art soil information products using geo-statistical and machine learning methodologies? Then you can join the ISRIC team!
In the coming years ISRIC- World Soil Information will further develop global, continental and national level soil information products using large soil profile datasets in combination with environmental covariates taking full advantage of the recent developments in remote sensing. In 2020 we are starting various new large-scale projects in which we will work together with national soil information institutes in Africa. We will also continue our work on space-time modelling of soil organic carbon content in the soil. For these projects we need your help!

and of course our in house museum
- contribute to the further development of SoilGrids (www.soilgrids.org) and other national or continental products;
- help to integrate spectral data in our workflow;
- contribute to the development of spatial information characterising soil and land quality, for instance for soil organic carbon sequestration, soil fertility assessments, and sustainable land management; you will base your products on available soil information (e.g. from WoSIS and SoilGrids), remote sensing data and/or modelling approaches;
- help to innovate our methodologies through better use of point datasets, improved use of remote sensing information and/or improved modelling and computational approaches.
