Open Positions in FNR

HEE Project Coordinator - The Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, is seeking applicants for a project coordinator for the Hardwood Ecosystem Experiment (HEE), a large multidisciplinary research project examining the relationship of silvicultural practices to changes in plant and animal species within forests across Indiana. This individual will coordinate all research, extension and teaching activities related to the HEE.

Postdoc Position Per - and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Ecotoxicology - One full time postdoctoral scientist position is available in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR) at Purdue University. We are seeking a productive scholar with skills in ecotoxicology, multiple-stressors, and/or mechanistic toxicology to work on projects funded by the USEPA and the USGS. Major research areas include studying per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) toxicity and metabolism across a range of aquatic species, evaluating whole organism to molecular responses after PFAS exposure, and PFAS field work in wetlands and lakes.

Postdoc Position Proximal and Remote Sensing of Forest Health - The labs of Drs John Couture and Matt Ginzel are hiring a postdoctoral position studying the use of proximal and remote sensing approaches to 1) understand and predict invasive insect species movement and 2) advance climate-resilient tree breeding efforts.

Research Assistant/Associate Professor of Digital Forestry - the Integrated Digital Forestry Initiative at Purdue University will hire up to four non-tenure track Research Assistant/Associate Professors to conduct high-impact, mission-oriented research in an array of areas including but not limited to next-generation remote sensing with a wide range of sensors (e.g. RGB, LiDAR, multi/hyperspectral, synthetic aperture radar, etc.) and platforms (e.g. proximal, UAVs, manned aircraft, autonomous vehicles, and satellites) and cutting-edge analytical methods to advance the science and practice of forestry.
