GIS Analyst/Graduate Intern, City of Newark (Newark, NJ)

The GIS Analyst/Graduate Intern (paid) will work closely with the Chief Sustainability Officer, GIS Planner and Environmental Commission to produce data that the City will use to identify and mitigate environmental injustice concerns. The GIS Analyst/Graduate Intern will be responsible for assisting in the development of an Environmental Resource Inventory (ERI), translating and interpreting technical content for various audiences. The ERI will include data on built, natural, environmental, health and demographic features that occur within Newark’s boundaries. The ERI will also seek to make visible to the public geospatial information about environmental features, both positive and negative, as juxtaposed to demographic and health data, in order to develop a better understanding of the relationships among environment, land use, public health, and neighborhood quality of life.
