AidData, Global Research Institute (GRI) at William & Mary invites applications for two temporary, three-month Graduate fellowships during the summer of 2023. Through this fellowship, individuals will engage in cutting-edge geospatial research, including research design, data collection and analysis, and manuscript preparation. The objective of this fellowship is to develop and apply critical geospatial skills for academic and non-academic purposes.
Primary responsibilities include:
- Develop and program workflows in cloud computing environment (e.g., Google Earth Engine – GEE) and open-source statistical software (i.e., R) to transform time series remotely sensed imagery and open-source data into outcomes that help to understand socio-ecological, agriculture, and environmental issues in various parts of the world, specifically Asia and Africa.
- Automate geospatial workflows designed for estimating environmental indicators related to climate-sensitive agriculture with thorough testing and documentation.
- Conduct literature reviews in fields related to geospatial data and techniques (e.g., machine learning), particularly environmental and agricultural remote sensing.
