I am really thrilled to share the attached position description for the forest entomologist search now underway here at Ohio State University. For those of you who know him, this is the descendant of the position previously covered by Dan Herms.
Concurrently, our School of Environment and Natural Resources is searching for a junior faculty in Ecological Forestry and Restoration. I would expect potential synergies in this area as it may pertain to restoration after alien pest incursions.
Please spread the word to your local networks. We are trying to reach the widest possible audience of outstanding forest entomologists.
Any questions about the position can be addressed as described in the job ad. Anyone interested in potentially collaborating with me, please feel free to ask questions!
All the best,
[The Ohio State University]
