Quantitative Forest Ecologist Position at WSU Pullman

This is a great opportunity to study forest ecosystem/carbon dynamics in 
forests of the Pacific Northwest.

We are especially interested in candidates with a  background in remote 
sensing (e.g. Lidar, hyperspectral data) combined with field plot data 
collection/integration experience.

The School of the Environment (SoE) at Washington State University (WSU) 
is seeking a dynamic, motivated colleague with expertise in forest 
ecology to join a productive and innovative team of biological and 
physical science faculty building a new program in forest ecology and 
management within the SoE. This is a 9-month, tenure-track position 
expected to begin Fall 2017 at the Pullman, Washington campus. The 
successful applicant is expected to develop an 
internationally-recognized research program, including the training of 
M.S. and Ph.D. students.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an 
extramurally-funded research program in quantitative forest ecology that 
complements existing research in SoE. The applicant’s research foci may 
include application of statistics, field-based measurements and/or 
modeling to problems in forest ecology, management, monitoring and 
evaluation; forest biomass or carbon or nitrogen dynamics; forest 
response to climate change and landform evolution; interaction with 
non-forest ecosystems; geospatial analysis and remote sensing of forest 
ecosystems; or other quantitatively-grounded disciplines. The successful 
candidate will contribute to the continued development of a Society of 
American Foresters-accredited forestry degree by developing and teaching 
undergraduate and graduate courses involving statistical, geospatial and 
computational tools, and traditional and modern field-based forest 
measurement techniques.
