Lomakatsi Restoration Project is a non-profit, grassroots organization that develops and implements forest and watershed restoration projects in Oregon and Northern California.

It is hiring 3 restoration forestry positions:

Candidates are encouraged to apply ASAP.

A postdoctoral research opportunity in social science is available with US Forest Service (USFS), Pacific Northwest Research Station (PNW) in Seattle, Washington, or Portland or Corvallis, Oregon. This opportunity may start remotely due to the ongoing pandemic.

Lee Cerveny, Research Social Scientist, is looking to fill a position for a one-year postdoctoral research fellow to conduct research on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the USFS. This work could potentially expand to include agency interactions with communities, partners, other governmental agencies including tribes, or with resource users.  The person is being hired through the U.S. Department of Energy ORISE fellowship program and will work directly with a team of social scientists in Seattle.  

This post-doc begins August 2021 as a virtual position and will be completed by August 2022. The team seeks someone with strong social science research skills (both quantitative and qualitative would be ideal) and an interest in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). And, it would be beneficial if that person had a background or interest in institutional analysis, industrial or organizational sociology/psychology, business, or public administration. The postdoc will work with the team to develop 1 or 2 short-term studies that could be completed within a year to explore the role of public agency culture as well as the nature of work or the culture of that profession (wildland firefighting, forestry, law enforcement) and how that may play a role in shaping the work environment. This builds off some of the team’s previous work (in review) related to gender, diversity and inclusion in wildland firefighting in the Northwest.
