Postdoctoral Researcher
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Branching Out Postdoctoral Researcher

We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher to conduct qualitative research and outreach on agroforestry practices in the Midwestern USA. Interest in agroforestry is accelerating, given its potential for combining ecological and economic benefits. Yet support for forestry and agriculture are still primarily in separate spheres and agroforestry faces barriers related to norms, information, incentives, markets, and policy. The person in this position will travel across the Midwest including Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio to conduct on-farm and professional interviews, develop case studies, and potentially assist with surveys.
-- PhD in social sciences related to agriculture, forestry, natural resources, conservation, policy, or planning.
-- Experience conducting and publishing qualitative social science research.
-- Passion for listening to, and writing about, farmer, landowner, land manager, family member, and professional advisor, government agency, nonprofit, and industry employee experiences.
-- Writing and team communication skills.

Collaboration Technician
New Mexico Forest & Watershed Restoration Institute
The New Mexico Forest and Watershed Restoration Institute (FWRI) seeks a full-time Collaboration Technician to work with community-based conservation collaborative groups and networks around the State of New Mexico on organization, administration and capacity building, and to contribute to building the FWRI’s Collaboration Program. The position requires a bachelor’s degree in Forestry, Environmental Sciences, or Environmental Education with coursework in Human Dimensions, or a bachelor’s degree in a social science discipline with coursework in natural resources or a closely related field. Relevant work experience can substitute for coursework requirements. The Collaboration Technician will work closely with the Collaboration Program Manager and other FWRI staff to promote and support collaborative groups and networks in New Mexico and neighboring states. The Collaboration Technician will organize and administer sub-regional networks, on the technologically-driven Connecting for Conservation (C4C) model, and will link place-based collaboratives and sub-regional networks with multi-state networks, such as the Southwest Collaboratives Support Network (SWCSN) and the Western Collaborative Conservation Network (WCCN). The job requires working with colleagues in public agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service and the New Mexico State Forestry Division; with staff at non-profit organizations such as The Nature Conservancy and the Forest Stewards Guild; with farmers, ranchers and soil and water conservation districts; with businesses; and with landowners and community members in rural, suburban, and urban areas. The Collaboration Technician also will coordinate with partners at other SWERI institutes in Arizona and Colorado, and with partners in the Forest Restoration Triangle (FORT) from New Mexico Highlands University and New Mexico State University.

The Research Associate will work with FWRI staff and program managers to coordinate applied research that advances the goals of their programs in building resilient ecosystems, assessing the effectiveness of restoration treatments, and restoring ecological function to forests and watersheds. The overall goal of this position is to advance applied research on adaptive ecological management and forest and watershed restoration. Applicants must have a doctoral degree or ABD with a timeline to complete a doctorate in a discipline closely related to ecological forest management or forest restoration, and research experience on ecological aspects of forest and watershed management and restoration. Working knowledge of GIS applications is also required.

Community-engaged research projects will be developed across three research theme:

Water Resources: Projects will address water-quality and water quantity resilience challenges that may disproportionately affect underserved communities in Austin.

Climate Extremes: Projects will focus on two key climate challenges faced by urban communities - extreme heat and extreme precipitation/flooding.

Communities & Landscapes: Projects will address resilience challenges as it relates to land-use dynamics, civic green space quality and capacity for ecosystem services, and soil quality for urban gardens and other urban sustainability practices and processes.

The appointment is for two years with a salary of $65,000 per year, plus health care and other benefits. Research funds are also available. The start date is flexible and can be as early as December 1, 2023. Teaching and administration are not expectations of this position but there may be opportunity to do so if desired.
