Want to join something GREAT and make a difference?
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has an exciting opportunity in the Forest Resources Division in Forest Informatics. DNR manages working forests on 2.1 million acres of state trust lands to provide quality habitat, clean water, and other public resources, as well as a stream of sustainable revenue to support public school construction and other trust beneficiaries. The maintenance of the balance between sustainable production of natural resource revenue, protection of public resources, and healthy natural habitats is a priority of the Division.
The talented and creative individuals within the Forest Informatics section support the sustainable management of DNR’s State Uplands programs by developing and delivering innovative technology and equipment, data and analyses.
We are looking for a candidate to fill the Senior Biometrician role, leading the State Uplands Forest Biometrics team. We are looking for a candidate to lead the research, design and development of growth and yield, assist with development of forest estate models and tools, and partner with our Forest Inventory and Application Development groups to further enhance the development of DNR’s remote sensed inventory system and data collection applications. Data, information, and products derived from the systems and models overseen by the Forest Biometrics team are critical to supporting agency in the sustainable long-term management of state forested trust lands.
