USDA Forest Service Qualitative Research on Public Lands Management, Communities, and Markets Fellowship

Research Project: The USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station (SRS) is seeking a scholar wishing to practice and refine their research skills through two related research projects focusing on land management, policy, and economics within the National Forest System. One project focuses on the institutional, policy, and business environment of timber sales and other fuel treatments on National Forests, and the second focuses on policy and economics of mature and old-growth forest management in and around National Forests. The scholar will be mentored by scientists in the SRS Forest Economics and Policy research unit and will interact with staff in the National Forest System. The mission of the Forest Economics and Policy unit is to advance understanding of the relationship between natural and human-caused disturbances and economic values; to examine how public and private forestland management is affected by government policies and private sector institutions; and to characterize domestic and international supply and demand for forest products.
