Details of ICFRE Recruitment: In 1988, forestry research in India was reorganised with setting up of the Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE) and the Forest Research Laboratory was upgraded and named as Institute of Wood Science and Technology (IWST) merging Sandal Research Centre and Minor Forest Products Unit functioning in the same campus, with it. The Institute is mandated to conduct research on wood science and technology as a national objective and focuses its research problems to important forestry research needs of the States of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Goa at a regional level. In this region, emphasis is placed on research relating to forestry, forest products and non-wood forest products. Taking into consideration the expertise available and contributions made by the Institute, the ICFRE has now recognised the Institute as Centres of Advanced Studies in the areas of (a) Improved utilisation of wood, (b) Mangrove and coastal ecology, (c) Research on sandal. The focus of research being carried out at IWST is in consonance with and in response to the aims of National Forest Policy in the areas of i) Utilisation of timber and non-timber products and ii) Increasing productivity. The Institute mainly aims to develop strategies for sustainable use and production of wood and other forest products (Source: www.iwst.icfre.gov.in)
