Join us this summer from June 28 to July 2, 2021 for the North American Association for Temperate Agroforestry Virtual Conference: Scaling up Agroforestry for Carbon Drawdown. AFTA is teaming up with the Savanna Institute to host the conference virtually.
The Association for Temperate Agroforestry (AFTA) is seeking proposals from universities that would like to host the 16th North American Agroforestry Conference to be held in the year 2019 in the month of June. Proposals should be returned to me not later than Thursday, February 28, 2018. Proposals will be accepted from AFTA members at Land Grant Universities in any State/Province, but we are especially interested in proposals from the Northwestern or Southwestern Regions. AFTA members in two or more adjoining States/Provinces may co-host this event, but there will be only one host State (the State in which the conference occurs) recognized by AFTA.
Job Title: Research Scientist in Silvopastoral Systems
Job ID: 22464
Provide research and outreach leadership to an established and innovative silvopasture program focused on understanding forage-tree-livestock interactions in the temperature-humid zone of the United States. Existing research projects include multiple location, systems-level experiments where pine trees/hardwoods, livestock and forages are used to enhance farm profitability in the lower-Midwest. Publication of research findings in peer-reviewed journals and preparation research grants to provide additional program support for silvopasture projects is expected.
