We are currently looking for a GIS/Remote Sensing Specialist to support our teams at HQ.
IMPACT is seeking a candidate with a strong technical background, who has previous experience working in GIS and Remote Sensing. More specifically, the candidate should have experience with analysis of satellite imagery with different spatial and spectral resolutions for the purposes of environmental monitoring, particularly the assessment of shocks (flood, drought) and environmental degradation. The candidate should understand concepts of cartographic design and be experienced in presentation of the results of spatial analysis using static and interactive mapping products. Ideally the successful candidate will also be familiar with the collection and processing of socio-economic data.
Under the direct supervision of the Annual Prioritization Unit Manager, and functional supervision of the GIS and Remote Sensing Unit at HQ, the GIS/RS Specialist is responsible for providing technical backstopping for MSNA activities. The GIS/RS Specialist will be responsible for the application of geographic information systems and remote sensing in the Annual Prioritization Unit, including relevant aspects of research design, support in designing data collection tools, ensuring (spatial) data quality, geo- spatial analysis, drafting of maps, and production of web maps and information management systems. In coordination with the relevant RMs and Specialists, the GIS/RS Specialist is required to support assessment planning in line with project and program objectives and with IMPACT’s research cycle and other relevant guidelines.
