3-20-2020 JOB: FIA Interim Forester
The Tennessee Division of Forestry is seeking entry-level candidates to fill a FIA Interim Forester position. This position offers the option of Crossville or Knoxville base-station location. Following one year of satisfactory performance and FIA certification, the individual may be reclassified as FIA Forester.
FIA Interim Forester
Application registry will be open April 1 - 18, 2020
This position is with the Tennessee Division of Forestry (TDF) Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program. This FIA unit is part of a nationwide U.S. Forest Service program that collects, processes, analyzes, evaluates, and publishes comprehensive information on forest resources. Field-based measurements occur on permanent plots located on a systematic grid across public and private ownership. FIA foresters collect data about tree measurements, forest health parameters, understory vegetation composition, habitat types, down dead woody material, silvicultural practices, natural disturbances, and land ownership.
The FIA Interim Forester works in a two-person crew and reports to the FIA Program Specialist. The FIA Interim Forester will primarily work from either the Crossville or the Knoxville work stations. However, plots are located statewide, and foresters may be sent to assist data collection in other areas of Tennessee on an as-needed basis. FIA foresters must be willing to work in challenging terrain, travel to remote plot locations (sometimes overnight), and plan their work according to weather conditions. The work schedule has built-in flexibility during the Monday-Friday work week to accommodate weather-related impediments, and some weekend and overnight travel may occur.
Data is collected to defined standards, and data quality is confirmed by the U.S. Forest Service. Standards of performance must be demonstrated annually to maintain data collection certification. The Forest FIA Specialist will provide training and support during the certification process. Loss of certification could result in job termination.
