Help WWF revolutionize the way we use data and technology to identify conservation opportunities and measure and monitor the impacts of our conservation efforts. The Data Scientist will work with the Global Science team and the WWF network to develop new ways to acquire and utilize environmental and socio-economic data including, but not restricted to WWF acquired data, government supplied data, commercially acquired data sets, and remotely sensed and in-situ spatial data. The Data Scientist in Conservation will be a data scientist with broad experience in data collection, organization, and synthesis, artificial intelligence (including machine learning), tool development and conservation or environmental workflows. Understanding of conservation issues on global and local scales is essential, as is experience working with multiple organizations to harmonize data and data management approaches. Knowledge of carbon accounting methods, environmental condition measurement, and large-scale socio-economic data will be useful. The key role of the data scientist is to help devise new methods for leveraging the data we have, and to develop methodologies for collecting and managing new data to help measure and achieve our conservation goals.
