Assitantship Opportunity: Biological Scientist/Data Collection/Analyst
USDA Forest Service
This is an 8-month internship with the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Forest Inventory and Analysis (RMRS-FIA) program. Energetic, detail-oriented, and self-motivated individuals who are interested in learning new skills while working in a wide range of natural resource disciplines will excel in this position. As part of this internship, you will be exposed to a range of experiences covering many aspects of the forest inventory program, including both working outdoors to collect field data as well as in an office to evaluate, process, and analyze those data.

Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) is a national Forest Service Research and Development program that collects, processes, analyzes, evaluates, and communicates comprehensive information on forest resources. The FIA program is charged with conducting a nationally consistent, strategic, annual forest inventory of the United States and its territories. Results derived from this annual inventory are widely used by public agencies, private companies, and organizations to inform natural resource decisions and policies. RMRS-FIA is one of four FIA Units across the country that comprise the national FIA program. The footprint of RMRS-FIA includes the 8 interior-west states of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Montana, Utah, and Wyoming.

Postdoctoral Research Associate - Remote Sensing
University of Maine
Statement of the job: The postdoctoral associate will conduct research to incorporate disturbance through time and remote sensing into a scaling framework of forest structure and functional diversity using in-situ and remotely sensed data, as well as assisting with other projects to provide research support for the PI.

Specific objectives may include:
1) Spatio-temporal modeling of forest structure and diversity. We will link our theoretical framework with time series of in-situ forest data and RS disturbance and climate/geodiversity data to build predictive models of the abundance of woody vegetation functional types and species richness from the canopy to the forest floor.
2) Using RS data inputs in Obj. I models to make predictions across space. We will input RS data on size structure, disturbance, and climate/geodiversity into the models from Obj. I to predict the abundance of woody vegetation functional types and species richness from the canopy to the forest floor across space to fill in the gaps in unsampled areas.
3) Using Obj. I models to make predictions across time We will use models from Obj. I to forecast the abundance of woody vegetation functional types and species richness into the near future in Smithsonian ForestGEO plots. This third objective will require some field work, likely at Harvard Forest.
