- The U.S. Forest Service’s Northern Research Station is seeking to hire a Research Forester with a duty station in Bradley, Maine in the near future. The incumbent will be in the USDA Forest Service’s Northern Research Station (NRS), Research Work Unit (RWU) “Northern Forest Science and Applications” (NRS-07). The mission of this RWU is to provide science and tools to strengthen northern forests and communities, now and in the future.
- The incumbent will be responsible for integrating their research results into a broader understanding of the composition, structure, function, and dynamics—including response to management and climate change—of northern conifer and associated (mixedwood and northern hardwood) ecosystems at local, landscape, regional, and broader scales.
- The incumbent will develop and maintain studies with a particular emphasis on northern conifer – and to a lesser extent mixedwood and northern hardwood – ecosystems in the Acadian Forest region (temperate – boreal ecotone) of the Northeast.
- In addition, the incumbent will work with colleagues to quantify effects of silviculture – including treatments focused on commodity production, ecological forestry, and rehabilitation – on forests and their various components across multiple spatial and temporal scales and will contribute to the refinement of those treatments.
