Two Avian point count technicians needed (5/15 – 7/20/2018) for a forest management research study. This study aims to understand how bird communities change as forests develop following harvest, in the Oregon Coast Range. The study is a component of a long-term research effort at Oregon State University (OSU) to understand the tradeoffs between forest management and biodiversity conservation. Technician will 1) conduct avian point count surveys in remote forest stands, 2) collect vegetation/habitat data in remote forest stands. 3) practice fastidious and detail-oriented data collection and data entry. This position will require working outdoors in inclement weather (rain, cold, heat), hiking through recently harvested forest stands, and carrying gear up to 25 lbs. The point count locations are accessed by driving on dirt roads by 4WD vehicle. The technician will be working closely with the principal investigator and other technician to access field site locations, but actual point count surveys will mostly be conducted alone. The technician will need to practice appropriate risk management for independent remote field work. Feel free to contact us with any questions or to receive the full position announcement. Technicians will receive $2100 - $2400 per month (commensurate with experience). Housing is not provided.
