Job Description:The Ecological Restoration Institute (ERI) and School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University (NAU) are seeking to fill a two-year postdoctoral position focusing on natural resource characterization and assessment of managed wildfire effects in support of landscape-scale forest restoration and management in the southwestern United States (U.S.). Research will focus primarily in two areas:

  • Characterizing spatially explicit forest stand conditions over large areas (>250K ha) among a variety of treatments (managed wildfire, prescribed fire, fuels reduction treatments, restoration treatments, etc.) and under various times since treatment scenarios.
  • Integration of remote sensing, applied sampling, experimental design and applied landscape vegetation modeling to improve assessments, predictions, and monitoring of forest condition, product availability, treatment effectiveness and disturbance impacts.

The research will be performed in close cooperation with local and regional public land managers, NAU researchers, stakeholders, special interests groups and local government officials. The selected candidate will be eligible for benefits, and the possibility of extension will depend on performance, program needs and availability of funding. The selected candidate will work closely with a research team that includes students and faculty at NAU, the Ecological Restoration Institute, the School of Forestry and various federal land managers.
