New tenure-track job opening in Green Engineering and Materials (GEM) research cluster UMaine!
The University of Maine has been designated an R1 university by the prestigious Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
From the FBRI director
Advancing forest-based technologies and supporting our region’s forest businesses is the heart of our mission at the Forest Bioproducts Research Institute (FBRI). Our team represents researchers from across the university who are dedicated to advancing sustainable forest bioproducts in three major categories: fuels, chemicals, and advanced materials.
We seek to understand the scientific underpinnings, system behavior, and policy implications for the production and adoption of forest-based bioproducts, helping state and regional forest-based industries to harness our available forest resources in new ways. We operate state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to testing and commercialization of new technologies that offer valuable R&D support for companies and government partners, research opportunities for graduate students, and experiential learning for undergraduates.
