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).
ISRIC's community of users, co-developers and alumni is growing. Our goal is to actively engage our community in various aspects of our work, such as product development, acquisition, recruitment and communication. In addition, participants of ISRICs expanding capacity building program for national soil institutes in Africa need to become part of the community as well. They should be provided with on-line courses, peer-to-peer learning experiences and on-line assistance.
To set-up and manage this on-line community we are looking for a community manager.
