Opportunities for Graduate & Professional Students
Colorado Forest Restoration Institute: Research Associate II
Fort Collins, CO
This Research Associate II position will manage tasks and contribute to deliverables associated with a program of work in adaptive management, collaborative monitoring, and ecological research for forest landscape restoration and wildfire risk co-management. A primary function of this position is to integrate science into adaptive management decision-making frameworks with field foresters from agencies such as the Colorado State Forest Service, NRCS conservation districts, the US Forest Service, and watershed place-based collaborative groups, such as the Upper South Platte Partnership. This includes working with forestry partners to integrate science based strategies into forest inventory, project planning, and prescription development, as well as monitoring and evaluation of ecological outcomes. The incumbent will work with CFRI team members to develop field data collection protocols, data management, data analysis, and reporting results via both oral communication and written products, including manuscripts submitted to peer-review journals.
USGS/NASA: “Hyperspectral Data Products for Ecosystem Science & Natural Resource Management.” Postdoc Research Position
Moffett Field, Mountain View, CA.
USGS and NASA have launched an interagency postdoctoral fellowship. This jointly-funded pilot program will bring researchers to Silicon Valley to explore the application of cutting edge science and technology to some of our Nation’s biggest challenges. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with NASA, NGA and industry leaders in the Silicon Valley
We are partnering because we believe that progress on the daunting challenges facing our nation requires an orbit-to-core approach. This effort is being led by the USGS National Innovation Center (NIC) and NASA’s Ames Research Center.
USGS Land Imaging, Energy and Minerals Programs and the Water Mission Area are matching support provided by NASA and NGA Silicon Valley for the first cohort of fellows. For more information, or to support additional opportunities, please contact the USGS NIC Director Jonathan Stock (email@example.com) or NASA Ames Research Center’s liaison, Ian Brosnan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Closing Date: April 29th
