Forest Pathologist, Plantation Forestry

The Scion Forest Protection team is currently looking for a Plantation Pathologist.  This exciting role will undertake fundamental and applied research to protect New Zealand plantation forests from plant pathogens both now and into the future.


The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop and lead research programmes that focus on the biology, epidemiology and impacts of forest pathogens.

Key responsibilities:

Biosecurity officer - pest plants

We want more good people to come and do great things with us.

We love where we live. That's why we work so hard to look after our region and the people who live and work in the Waikato region.

Our work is as diverse as the region we care for; from the tip of the Coromandel Peninsula to the slopes of Ruapehu. We've got ambitious goals and there are some tricky issues, but that's what makes it so interesting.
