USFS Forest Ecology Internship
ORISE - USFS
*Applications will be reviewed on a rolling-basis and will begin being reviewed on March 29, 2024.

USFS Office/Lab and Location: A fellowship opportunity is available with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service (USFS) within the Forest Service Southern Research Station (SRS) located in Asheville, North Carolina.

At the heart of the U.S. Forest Service's mission is their purpose. Everything they do is intended to help sustain forests and grasslands for present and future generations. Why? Because their stewardship work supports nature in sustaining life. This is the purpose that drives the agency’s mission and motivates their work across the agency. It’s been there from the agency’s very beginning, and it still drives them. To advance the mission and serve their purpose, the U.S. Forest Service balances the short and long-term needs of people and nature by: working in collaboration with communities and our partners; providing access to resources and experiences that promote economic, ecological, and social vitality; connecting people to the land and one another; and delivering world-class science, technology and land management.

Research Project: The USDA Forest Service's Southern Research Station (SRS) is seeking a post-baccalaureate fellow to join a team researching a variety of questions related to the management, restoration, and sustainability of mixed-oak forests in the southeastern US. This effort will involve collaborating with scientists and land managers conducting applied field research related to the ecological outcomes associated with novel and ecologically-based silvicultural treatments as well as conventional silvicultural methods.
