Post-Doctoral Research Position: Wildfire Recovery and Risk Reduction in Northern California 

Position Length: 16 months, flexible start date as soon as January 2024 
Location: Department of Emergency Management and Disaster Science, University of North Texas 
We seek a full-time motivated post-doctoral researcher to coordinate qualitative and geospatial data collection and analysis activities for a research project on wildfire recovery funded by the Joint Fire Science Program. The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary research team from the University of North Texas, USDA Forest Service, and the University of California Berkeley. 
Using a coupled social-ecological approach, this research seeks to understand how post-wildfire recovery and mitigation alters future wildfire vulnerability. The post-doctoral researcher will take a leadership role on analysis of stakeholder interviews regarding post-fire programs and outcomes in two counties in Northern California (Lake & Sonoma Counties). Qualitative data analysis and collation of geospatial data will inform wildfire risk modeling and community stakeholder engagement.
