Coordinator- Master Woodland Manager and Women Owning Woodlands Network - This position with the Oregon State University Extension Service, Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Program is responsible for coordination of two statewide programs, Master Woodland Manager (MWM) and Women Owning Woodlands Network (WOWNet). The MWM and WOWNet educational training programs aim to support woodland owners in making sound decisions about the management of forest resources. The MWM program provides an in-depth learning experience for owners of small woodland acreages through modules on a variety of topics relevant to forest management. Upon completion of the MWM training, individuals join a network of volunteers expected to share their new knowledge with others. WOWNet is a peer-learning network intended for women interested in learning and sharing knowledge on woodland management, in recognition of the growing number of women becoming primary managers/owners of farms and forests who often lack the social capital, knowledge, and access to resources that allow them to be successful. Through peer-learning, many sources of knowledge and forest management are blended to ultimately empower individuals and strengthen the family forestland owner community. Both programs are delivered in a manner consistent with best practices in the field of non-formal, non-credit adult education and respectful of local norms and culture.

Post-doctoral scholar position - Grassland restoration, native plant conservation, and traditional fire stewardship - The OSU College of Forestry is pleased to announce a postdoctoral scholar position in the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Lab to conduct and help manage research on grassland restoration and TEK on the Northern Great Plains of Montana. The postdoctoral scholar will be part of a multi-cultural research team working on the BLM/Fort Belknap Indian Community Grassland Restoration Project, and supervised by project PI, CoF Associate Dean of Inclusive Excellence and Director of Tribal Initiatives Cristina Eisenberg. This position begins on March 1,2023, or earlier, and is a fully-funded 12-month, three-year appointment with full benefits. Salary is commensurate with experience. The postdoctoral scholar will have an office in the TEK lab in the CoF Indigenous Natural Resource Office.
Now in its fifth year and funded through 2027, the BLM/Fort Belknap Indian Community Grassland Restoration Project takes place on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation and on surrounding BLM lands. The project is part of the BLM Native Plant Conservation and Restoration Program, and uses Seeds of Success protocols. The postdoctoral scholar will conduct research on the effects of traditional fire stewardship practices on grassland ecology, including soil biochemistry (relative abundance of PyC, microbial biomass, basal respiration, bacterial and fungal relative abundance, and enzyme activities associated with soil C and nutrient cycling), pollinator presence and diversity using eDNA, will lead data collection using BLM Assessment, Inventorying, and Management (AIM) plots, and collection of the seeds of native plants for restoration. The postdoctoral scholar will help create an ecocultural restoration plan for BLM and FBIC. To apply, please contact Cristina Eisenberg, firstname.lastname@example.org
