  • A demonstrated record of capabilities in formulating research projects, executing said projects, and communicating their results and impact to stakeholders
  • Comfort in navigating ambiguous, complex, evolving environments with significant autonomy
  • Ph.D. or 5 + years of domain expertise in artificial intelligence (including machine learning) in geospatial and spatiotemporal analytics as they apply to disciplines like agricultural, ecological, earth, and/or climate systems
  • Theoretical and applied experience with programmatic processing of geospatial data and common data structures like tensors, including reprojection and set operations with tools similar to GeoPandas and rioxarray
  • Data science and ML engineering experience to implement and test new algorithms, methods, and frameworks, preferably with a high level of competency in Python and experience with at least one ML framework like PyTorch
  • Capability to temporarily flex into Data Scientist or ML Engineer roles as business needs demand
  • An impact-first mindset with focus on driving outcomes by graduating research deliverables to development and production
  • Motivation and fortitude to work on solutions to society's grand challenges, namely food security and climate change
  • Initiate the design, development, execution and implementation of technology research projects with a focus on geospatial analytics, including but not limited to land use classification, weather or earth system emulation and forecasting, and data assimilation
  • Conclusively evaluate the applicability of scientific advances, particularly those in machine learning and artificial intelligence to meet business needs
  • Identify promising technical approaches, and implement and test proofs-of-concepts to advance improved processes and technologies through to development and production for use by other teams
  • Provide internal consultation and strategic thought leadership as they pertain to technical solutions in ML (including DL) for geospatial applications and spatiotemporal analytics
  • Maintain substantial knowledge of state-of-the-art principles and theories, and provide industry intellectual leadership for artificial intelligence in agriculture
  • Identify new avenues of research by interacting with collaborators, assess required timelines and resources required, and help develop long-term research strategy
Desired Qualifications
  • Interest in developing systems science to relate food systems, climate change, and operations research to improve global food security
  • Experience in applications and theory of explainable AI (XAI) and the interrelationships between explicitly implemented dynamical systems models and machine learned models
  • Cloud engineering or MLOps experience for scaling ML workflows
