Brief description of duties associated with this position
The incumbent will be a scientist in the Urban Ecosystem and Social Dynamics (UESD) Program. The UESD program of research is national in scope, with documented extensions to international applications. Three problem areas are addressed: (1) Realize an abundant and sustainable supply of ecosystems by examining the relationships among human uses, human values, ecosystem services, and management; (2) Investigate how to reconnect humans and nature considering the roles of changing demographics, cultures, urbanization, socio-economics, and technology on use and sustainability of natural resources; and (3) Manage ecosystems to better reflect the desires of the American people by determining the impacts of public policies on ecological and social patterns and processes. The goal for research in these areas is to better understand the interconnections among ecosystems, people and social institutions in ways that will inform policy and improve management of forests and other natural resources. The incumbent will conduct research across all three problem areas. An individual who has completed a graduate degree in economics or a similar field will be a good fit for this opportunity.

The incumbent will focus research on contemporary natural resource issues including vegetation management activities, water resources, forest disturbances, and recreation. To address such topical areas, it is anticipated that the scientist will have knowledge, skills, and abilities in econometrics, microeconomic theory, forest economics theory, natural resource and environmental economics, production economics, valuation methods, spatial statistics, Monte Carlo simulation methods, GIS, and programming in R/Stata/SAS. The incumbent individually plans and conducts complex analyses, and collaborates with other scientists in designing, integrating, and conducting larger, complex multi- and transdisciplinary studies undertaken by the agency and collaborators which require expertise in economic aspects of ecosystem services and natural resources management.

The incumbent has primary responsibility for evaluating data, conducting analyses, determining significance of findings, and formulating conclusions. Findings are reported out by the scientist alone or with co-authors as prepared talks at scientific and professional meetings, webinars, workshops and training sessions and in written form through proceedings papers, book chapters, reports, station publications, and peer reviewed journals. Consultations and technology transfer of findings to facilitate application of findings and improved understanding are also part of the assignment.
