I wish to announce formation of a search committee for a tenured faculty member who will serve as Director of the Advanced Technology Initiative - Precision Forestry Cooperative in the College of Forest Resources. The successful applicant for this position is also expected to hold a joint appointment in either Earth and Space Sciences or Civil and Environmental Engineering. Forest Resources will be the home department for the Director.
Attached is a description of the position as well as the composition and charge to the search committee.
I consider this recruitment a high priority for our College and I am willing to support the search as necessary. The person selected to fill this position can start as early as July 1, 2004. Please let me know how I may be of further assistance. Thanks and best wishes.
B. Bruce Bare, Dean
