firstname.lastname@example.org The Amazon Borderlands Spatial Analysis Team at the University of Richmond is looking for a research assistant to work on a NASA-funded SERVIR project focused on understanding the effects of land cover change on ecosystem services in the Southwestern Amazon. We seek a research assistant interested in applied science, and working with stakeholders from academia, government, NGOS, and indigenous groups across Peru and Brazil to support decision making. The research technician will support the greater goals of the project, mentor undergraduates and, assist, develop, and undertake their own spatial and statistical analysis projects. We envision this position most suitable for a recent college or masters graduate interested in climate change, sustainability, and tropical forests. We expect the research assistant to be a self-starter, motivated to expand and develop their own research skills.
