Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The Harvard Forest invites applications for a post-doctoral research fellow focused on analysis of Northern New England forest landscape. The project seeks to understand the impacts of alternative ownership and management structures on forest conditions and evaluate alternative options for future management. The successful candidate will be a member of Dr. Jonathan Thompson's Landscape Ecology Lab and also work closely with Dr. Valerie Pasquarella. The research is funded, in part, by a Dynamics of Integrated Social Ecological Systems grant and, in part, by the Harvest Forest Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. The candidate will conduct retrospective forest disturbance analyses using the Landsat archive within Google Earth Engine and project alternative forest futures using an existing landscape modeling framework. The candidate should be interested in quantifying opportunities and risks associated with the use of forests in climate change mitigation. While there are some sideboards on the research topics, there is also substantial flexibility regarding the exact specification of questions and methods.
