Database/IT expert

Do you have experience in developing/managing large PostgreSQL databases in a UNIX environment and are you familiar with GIS and OGC standards? Do you have an affinity for soil-related and environmental issues? Can you cope with the dynamics of large projects in an international setting and deliver results on-time? Then we are looking for you!

Under guidance of senior staff, you will be responsible for the daily management and further development of ISRIC’s World Soil Information Service (WoSIS). This large PostgreSQL database is designed to provide the world community with quality-assessed, standardised soil data to support modelling at (sub)regional and global scales. Besides contributing to WoSIS itself, you will gradually be involved in various international projects dealing with the generation of inter-operable soil information systems and the use of this information to support sustainable land use and improve soil health.
