Wanted: impatient optimists to make a lasting impact on our planet

 
 

We have less than 35 growing seasons to double food production in order to meet the needs of a nine-billion+ population. Yet Earth’s soil fertility is rapidly degrading and climate volatility is increasing, with the impacts being felt on the frontline by producers, enterprises relying on land-based processes, insurance companies pricing risk, and governments setting policy.  

 

Cervest is combining the vast knowledge developed within the Earth science community with the progress of  AI, and subsequently expanding our understanding of the planet, for the benefit of humanity and plant life. We are building an AI-powered platform that will enable our users to make better ‘risk aware’ decisions through predictive analytics, climate simulations, and by providing personalised climate signals. 

 

We are searching for like-minded individuals who want to make a difference, build extraordinary analytics, and transform lives through Earth Science AI.

 

At Cervest, you’ll find a team of impatient optimists who are passionate about creating a lasting and positive impact on our planet – through cutting-edge machine learning, maths, science and data. 

 

Are you thinking about a career that uses the power of technology, science and data to create a more sustainable world? A workplace where you can make a real difference to your team and the global community?

 

We’d love to hear from you.

Lukas completed his maths BSc at ETH Zurich, followed by an MSc in statistics at Imperial College. He wrote his MSc thesis in collaboration with Cervest, on the modelling of North American wheat yields via Bayesian parametric and non-parametric methods.

Following an internship in the NGO sector in Bangladesh and a stint in the world of fintech, Lukas comes to Cervest, excited to apply himself to the challenges that are arising as a consequence of unsustainable land-use policies and climate change.

Aidan Coyne
Junior Researcher

Aidan is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Science and Engineering at University College London with a focus on computer science and data informatics.

At Cervest, Aidan is working on researching and assimilating a database of articles categorising the reasons for extreme decreases in crop yields across Europe. The information will be used to help predict the impact of weather events on crop yield and contribute to  Cervest’s ability to bring clarity to decision making around climatic and extreme events.

While studying, she also volunteers with environmental conservation groups and youth engagement programmes.

Jasmine Thompson
