FEMC Data Scientist
Are you interested in writing code and crunching data to help protect our northeastern forests? We are seeking a Data Scientist to support our data analysis, integration and synthesis mission. The successful applicant will be a quick study, ready to jump in, and capable of working both independently and as part of a collaborative team.
To help the region better understand the patterns and trends in forest regeneration, the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative (FEMC) created REGEN: The Northeastern Forest Regeneration Data Network , an online data and methodology portal that allows users to explore, search, filter, and compare projects and datasets related to forest regeneration.
While many monitoring efforts and research studies have collected regeneration data, this information has not been aggregated, standardized or made public to the broad group of stakeholders who could benefit from the information. The FEMC responded to these concerns by creating REGEN, a structured framework and portal where visitors can discover and compare projects and datasets that have collected regeneration data.
The data collection available through the portal includes projects and datasets ranging from long term research studies examining the effects of silviculture treatments on regeneration to those looking at the effects of natural disturbances on regeneration. This work reflects the efforts of a broad collaborative group allowing us to work together to promote easier data discovery and utilization without duplication.

FEMC is seeking a full time Project Manager and a part time Web Developer!
FEMC Project Manager
Working with FEMC staff and cooperators across our 7-state region, the Project Manager helps to develop and deliver state and regional projects focused on assessing, monitoring and reporting on forest ecosystem condition. The driven individual chosen for this position will be responsible for the design, planning, and oversight of projects that support the needs of FEMC cooperators to understand, track and respond to forest ecosystem health issues. The Project Manager will supervise multiple projects at a time ranging in topics from collating in-stream biodiversity metrics to standardizing forest regeneration inventories to using remote sensing imagery for forest change detection. The Project Manager could find themselves coordinating the integration and analysis of disparate datasets, overseeing the development of new web-based and geospatial data visualization tools, or developing a workshop on forest health issues in collaboration with our small and vibrant team along with a wide range of cooperators from academia, non-profits and state and federal agencies.
FEMC Web Developer
Are you interested in writing code to help protect our northeastern forests? We are seeking a part-time front-end developer to help develop and maintain our fleet of products. This includes front-end design to increase functionality of existing tools, developing a more intuitive, richer user experience, streamlining product maintenance through back-end interfaces, and adding new life into some oft neglected areas. The successful applicant will be a quick study, ready to jump in, and capable of working both independently and as part of a collaborative team.
