Our customers deliver ROI in their first year of deployment with reduced costs, improved reliability, and achieved sustainability goals. Learn more at www.aidash.com.
What we are building?
We are revolutionizing operations, maintenance and sustainability for core industrial and service sectors. This is what keeps us awake at night. We believe in AI with a purpose; AI with humans at its core, action-oriented Intelligence, solves complex problems, and outperforms the expectations of our customers.
What's the role?
Do you love ecology and the power of spatial data? Do you dream of using cutting-edge technology to solve real-world environmental challenges?
If so, then this geospatial ecologist position is for you! We are looking for a passionate and skilled individuals to join our dynamic team and be part ofAI powered sustainability platform using remote sensing and satellite/ariel imagery. You'll play a pivotal role in mapping detailed habitats, conduct LULC classification, monitoring biodiversity, and informing conservation efforts across diverse landscapes.

What will you do?

  • Layer Mapping:
  • Utilise remote sensing data (satellite imagery, LiDAR, aerial photography, field surveys) and GIS software to map and monitor habitat, biodiversity, and ecosystem health.
  • Design and create intricate habitat maps using GIS software (QGIS, ArcGIS, or similar).
  • Refine map symbology, labelling, and layout for clarity and visual impact.
  • Manage and organise large geospatial datasets effectively.
  • Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) Classification:
  • Create and modify LULC classification using remote sensing data to identify and map different land cover types across the UK / EU / USA landscape.
  • Select and apply appropriate classification algorithms and techniques based on data characteristics and project goals.
  • Assess classification accuracy(QA/QC) and uncertainty through validation with ground truth data.
  • Utilise LULC information to understand habitat distribution, landscape patterns, and changes over time.
  • Geospatial Analysis for Habitats:
  • Conduct spatial analyses to study habitats (UK / EU / USA or other classification standards) at various scales, utilising satellite imagery, LiDAR, and aerial imagery.
  • Develop and apply advanced habitat mapping techniques tailored to UK / EU / USA ecosystems (heathlands, peatlands, woodlands, coastal environments and others).
  • Analyse habitat change trends and assess the impact of factors like climate change, land-use intensification, and invasive species.
  • Create maps of habitat distribution, biodiversity hotspots, and conservation priorities.
  • Collaboration and Communication:
  • Collaborate with field ecologists, data scientists, GIS specialists, and other stakeholders to validate remote sensing data and refine mapping approaches.
  • Stay abreast of ecological concepts, geospatial technology advancements and integrate them into mapping and monitoring strategies.

What we are looking for?

  • Master's or equivalent degree in earth science, ecology, environmental science, geology, botany or other related field with a strong emphasis on ecology, habitat enhancement, biodiversity, geospatial analysis and remote sensing.
  • Prior experience in applying geospatial analysis to ecological mapping or conservation projects is highly desirable.
  • Understanding of habitat mapping, LULC classification, and analysis using remote sensing data, ideally focused on UK/EU ecosystems is preferred.
  • Hands on in GIS software (QGIS, ArcGIS, or similar) and experience remote sensing data and tools.
  • Collaborative and team-oriented with the ability to work independently and in a team.
  • Excellent communication skills to convey complex information effectively.
