The Camp Fire Endowed Professor
The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, along with major support provided by the Camp Fire Conservation Fund, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and SUNY-ESF Roosevelt Wild Life Station, has created an endowed faculty position for an interdisciplinary scientist working at the nexus of conservation science and policy. The primary role of this scientist will be to address issues of national and international relevance in big game conservation, with a research emphasis in the northeastern United States, and a home base in Syracuse, New York. This position provides a unique opportunity to build the interdisciplinary program needed to solve contemporary challenges in wildlife management, strengthen the role of hunters and hunting in conservation, and train the next generation of innovative and politically-oriented conservation scientists. A national search for the first-ever Camp Fire Professor of Wildlife Conservation will be completed during the 2017-18 academic year.
