Senior Ecologist at Harvard Forest

(posted July 9, 2021)

Harvard Forest seeks a colleague with a successful research, publication, and funding record to join our senior research staff. The disciplinary area is open but should augment and enhance existing programs at the Harvard Forest and leverage established archival, land, and research infrastructure developed over more than a century of study. The researcher will join a collaborative group of senior scientists who design, fund, conduct, and publish research relating to forested landscapes of New England; advance engagement with relevant policy- and decision-makers; and collaborate with a wide network of external researchers. Senior researchers’ salaries are department-funded, and scientists are expected to develop an externally funded research program.  Senior Scientists mentor undergraduates—from Harvard and elsewhere—in Harvard Forest summer/winter internships and co-curricular programs. They may also advise graduate students and post-doctoral fellows as part of their research program and contribute to our renowned LTER Schoolyard K-12 education program.

Basic Qualifications:  PhD required. Post-doctoral or similar experience including a history of collaborative research, publication, student mentorship, engagement with broader audiences, and external funding.
