SilviaTerra is built on terabytes of geospatial data, and we are rapidly expanding to integrate new types and structure of data into our work. Our Basemap dataset is our flagship data product- a high-resolution dataset of estimated number, species and size of trees across the continental United States. Basemap and its derivative metrics are critical components that underpin transactions on our carbon market.
This role is an integral part of that work, primarily responsible for improving and extending spatially explicit forecasts of annual forest change and harvest likelihood. The initial focus of this work is North America, with planned expansion globally. The Data Scientist - Econometrician will work closely with the rest of our team of forest biometricians and data scientists.
Our ideal candidate has familiarity with timber economics, experience with landscape-scale forecasting of behavior and change, and is eager to do applied work with real-world impact. If that's you, we want to meet you!
