Corvallis Research Lab

Employment opportunities with the Willamette Spring Chinook Project are available annually as seasonal positions. The project requires up to 6 employees during May through July for beach seining and PIT tagging juvenile chinook in streams throughout the Willamette basin. Three employees may be hired November through March to sample aquatic habitats for juvenile chinook. Up to 10 employees are used for float and walking surveys conducted from mid-July through October to monitor spawning chinook and collect biological samples. Employees are expected to be professionals and can expect an intense work schedule. Positions are located primarily in Corvallis but some people are stationed out of Eugene and Clackamas.

Employees must be self-motivated, willing to work under a variety of conditions, and responsible for the quality of data collected. Candidates with related field experience and a college background in a natural resource field such as fish and wildlife, biology, or geology will be given preference for interviews.

Applicants must have a valid driver's license and acceptable driving record. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will check driving records for in-state finalists. Out-of-state finalists will be required to present a current driving record for review.
