Assistant Professor of Practice--Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Forester
Salary: 58,008 - 63,000

Oregon State University (OSU) Forestry & Natural Resources (FNR) Extension is recruiting an energetic, creative, and collaborative individual committed to sustaining natural resources and strengthening communities and economies by serving as a FNR Extension forester. This is a full-time, 12-month, county-based Extension and fixed-term Assistant Professor of Practice position, covering Klamath and Lake Counties in Oregon and will be based in either Klamath Falls or Lakeview, OR. The anticipated starting salary is in the range of $58,008 - $63,000 per year, commensurate with education, training, and experience.

This Extension forester will be part of the FNR Extension team that provides non-formal education on forestry and natural resource issues to a wide range of audiences. “Non-formal” refers to off-campus, non-credit learning opportunities such as workshops, field trips, property tours, and demonstrations, as well as indoor presentations, narrative communications such as blog posts and other social media, videos, and articles. Educational audiences and partners may include adults who are private woodland owners, homeowners in the wildland- urban interface, professional natural resource managers such as foresters and forest workers, collaborative conservation groups and watershed councils, tribes, policymakers, economic development officials, and teachers. Extension foresters also commonly engage a broad spectrum of youth through teacher professional development or directly through outdoor schools, camps, and other youth events. Educational topics could include sustaining forest health, wildlife habitats, and forest productivity through subjects such as forest ecology, silviculture, wildfire preparedness, reforestation, forest restoration, water resources, climate change, bioenergy, and collaborative conservation and recreation.

You will address clientele’s needs using your own skills and knowledge along with those of local partners and the collective resources of the FNR team, including the new Extension Fire Program. You will work independently, and also collaboratively with FNR colleagues, to address both local and statewide needs. You will use modern learning tools including online and hybrid classes, to help Extension build a culture of engaged scholarship where we seek active partnerships between the University and community and promote integration of programs across disciplines. We rely on active and effective communication with colleagues, staff, partner organizations, and stakeholders. The position will require travel.
