This recruitment will be used to fill full-time Seasonal (May-September), technician and crew lead positions for the Northwest Bat Hub, a part of the HERS Lab, at Oregon State University-Cascades. These positions will be located in Oregon, Washington, or Idaho.
Our field crews work in pairs (1 crew lead & 1 tech) to conduct passive acoustic monitoring of bats across all of Oregon, Washington, or Idaho. Crews will drive and hike to remote survey sites to deploy Pettersson D500x bat detectors. They will work an 8-on, 6-off schedule and will camp near their survey sites most nights during the work week. Housing will be provided for the off days. Crews will also complete post-sunset listening surveys occasionally throughout the season. The position is ~90% fieldwork.
