This is a 9-month tenure track appointment with both research and teaching responsibilities at the Assistant Professor level in the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia (UGA). This position will be focused on the use of remote sensing technologies, including LiDAR, to improve site-specific prescriptions in forest management regimes at a range of spatial scales. The candidate will use remote sensing technologies to address diverse forest management, forest health, and carbon sustainability issues in the southeast that are relevant to private landowners, industry and governmental agencies. The position will interact with the Plantation Management Research Cooperative (PMRC), the Wood Quality Consortium (WQC), and the Southern Pine Health Research Cooperative (SPHRC). These three industry-supported cooperatives span the full range of forest management, wood quality, and forest health research issues relevant to Georgia and southeast US. This position will support our undergraduate and graduate teaching missions by expanding our offerings in remote sensing applications to support precision forestry. Undergraduate teaching responsibilities will begin in Fall Semester 2020.
