Scientist – Urban Tree Ecophysiologist
The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station
New Haven, CT

A full-time research position is available at the Assistant Scientist II level (Ph.D.) in urban tree ecophysiology/arboriculture in the Department of Forestry and Horticulture, The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES) in New Haven. We are seeking a highly motivated scientist to develop and maintain a highly productive urban tree ecophysiology research program integrating genetic, biochemical, and whole plant response to develop mechanistic models of trees’ responses to stressors and proactive cultural treatments. Research is expected to provide the basis for innovative management prescriptions for residents and municipal governments to increase resistance to biological (e.g., insects, diseases) and abiotic stressors (e.g., compacted soils, climate change) by increasing tree health.
