PORTLAND, Ore. July 26, 2013. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell today named Dr. Robert D. Mangold as the new Director of the Pacific Northwest Research Station.
Mangold, who officially begins serving as Station Director on August 11, has been acting Station Director since January 2013.

As Station Director, Mangold will lead the station’s nearly 400 employees—including 80 scientists—in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. The station is one of five research stations in the Forest Service and conducts research across 11 laboratories and research centers, 12 experimental areas, and more than 20 research natural areas.

Prior to his appointment at the station, Mangold served as acting Associate Deputy Chief for Research and Development in Washington, D.C. Before that, he was Director of the agency’s Forest Health Protection program, a position he held since 2000, where he headed critical work associated with programs that prevent, detect, monitor, and suppress insects and disease across federal, state, tribal, and private lands.

Mangold—who has experience working in State and Private Forestry, Research and Development, and the National Forest System of the Forest Service, and in private industry—joined the agency in 1988 as a geneticist for Oregon’s Umpqua National Forest. He holds a Ph.D. in genetics from Oregon State University.













The Pacific Northwest Research Station—headquartered in Portland, Ore.—generates and communicates scientific knowledge that helps people make informed choices about natural resources and the environment. The station has 11 laboratories and centers located in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon and about 400 employees.
