|
Publicado hace 24 días

The Family Forest Research Center (FFRC) is seeking a full-time Research Fellow to aid in the implementation of the USDA Forest Service, National Woodland Owner Survey (NWOS; www.fia.fs.fed.us/nwos). The NWOS is the Forest Service's official survey of private forest landowners and a primary source of information on US landowners' objectives, motivations, behaviors, and attributes. The FFRCs' focal emphasis is on family forest ownerships (FFOs) – the private individuals, families, and trusts that own a plurality of U.S. forest land. The FFRC is a joint partnership between the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station, dedicated to increasing our understanding of family forest owners (www.familyforestresearchcenter.org). The FFRC is a collaborative organization that benefits from staff and partners with different specialties and experiences to conduct research and outreach. The Research Fellow will aid in all stages of survey implementation, with a focus on data management and database administration. In addition to maintaining the current version of the NWOS database (NWOS-DB version 1.0), they will have a primary role in the ongoing process of developing and implementing new versions of NWOS-DB. Alongside the database itself, the FFRC maintains a collection of scripts used in the processing of data and other survey implementation tasks. One of the main duties of the Research Fellow will be to assist in running, maintaining, and actively developing these scripts in order to support the ongoing task of survey implementation. As well as standalone scripts, the FFRC has developed and maintains an R package ('nwos'; https://github.com/familyforestresearchcenter/nwos) to facilitate accessing NWOS-DB and working with NWOS data. The successful candidate will be expected to become a primary developer of this package.
