Lecturer in Forest Sciences at Bangor University
Bangor University is a leading UK and international academic centre in the field of forest sciences, with a strongly upward trajectory. To maintain and grow our record of excellence, we invite applications to a full-time, permanent lectureship in forest sciences. We welcome applicants with expertise in forest inventory, assessment and monitoring (especially the application of advanced remote sensing technology and the analysis and modelling of the resulting geo-spatial ‘big data’). The focus of their teaching and research at Bangor will be to use this expertise to advance scientific understanding of the world’s forest resources to underpin their sustainable management and deliver on key international policy objectives. We are seeking to put Bangor at the forefront of international research to enhance the crucial role of forests in mitigating and adapting to climate change, conservation of biodiversity, and delivery of the full range of other ecosystem services. We place an emphasis on ‘whole-systems’ assessment, not just at the ecosystem level but also up to the scale of the landscape, socio-ecological systems and the forest products value chain.
