ISRIC - World Soil Information (www.isric.org) has the mission to serve the international community with information about the world's soil resources to help addressing major global issues. We are the International Council for Science (ICSU) accredited World Data Centre for Soils (WDC-Soils) since 1989 and maintains the World Soil Museum. In partnership, we operate in four priority areas: (i) standard setting for soil information; (ii) production and serving of spatial soil information products; (iii) education and capacity building; and (iv) development of derived products for specific user groups. ISRIC is an independent foundation located at the Wageningen Campus and has a strategic cooperation agreement with Wageningen University and Research (WUR).

Besides the development of soil information, ISRIC has a solid track record in the field of land degradation assessment and sustainable land management (SLM). We work actively on the application of soil information to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals through the promotion of sustainable land management globally and developing spatial information products related to land degradation and sustainable land management (SLM).
We are looking for an experienced colleague who will lead ISRIC's activities in this field.
