We are seeking a highly motivated person to conduct research that addresses impacts of climate change on forests in western Canada. In British Columbia alone, 60 million hectares are forested. How we manage these forests now will have a large impact for decades to come and sound research is the foundation of sustainable management. As the successful candidate, you will contribute to these objectives by analyzing data from long-term forest experiments to evaluate how silvicultural interventions like thinning or fertilization can increase forest resilience to drought. Annual growth variations will be linked to climatic extremes and the anatomy of the wood will be linked to underlying mechanisms. The position will be supervised by Dr. David Montwé at the University of British Columbia – Department of Forest Resources Management.
