The USDA California Climate Hub, USGS Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center and The John Muir Institute of the Environment at the University of California Davis, have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in translational forest ecology, policy and management.  The primary tasks of this position are two-fold: 1. Serve as the program manager (coordination and communication specialist) for the State of California Forest Management Task Forces’ Science Advisory Panel where the core functions are around coordination, facilitation and internal and outward communication of science-based translational products; and 2. Conduct stakeholder needs assessments, amass and catalog available science-based resources to enhance decision making capacity for forest management implementation; identify critical information and resource gaps and research needs; and design and develop science-based translational products and support tools that have application for to meet the aforementioned objectives. 

This is a unique position that will give an early career scientist the opportunity to have their voice heard on decisions that will shape forest management and thus the landscape of California for years or generations to come. The successful individual will work directly with a large contingent of California’s leading scientists in a wide range of forestry related fields and with political appointees, senior civil servants, lands-managers, local level elected officials and other decision makers.  Additionally, this is an opportunity to help translate science into meaningful state-wide policy that could act as a model for other states and perhaps the rest of the nation.  The duty station will be located in Davis CA on the University of California, Davis Campus.
