The Calapooia Watershed Council is seeking help to conduct environmental DNA sampling that will aid Chinook salmon recovery efforts in the Calapooia River.
Environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling is an innovative monitoring technique that allows for rare or cryptic species to be detected in freshwater ecosystems. The Calapooia Watershed Council (CWC) is using eDNA sampling to assess the presence or absence of ESA-listed Upper Willamette River Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) to inform species recovery in the Calapooia basin.
The CWC is seeking two eDNA Monitoring Technicians to conduct eDNA sampling from Sept 20th to Oct 1st. These two paid positions will each receive $1,600 stipend, plus reimbursement for mileage to and from the work site. Volunteer positions are also available for those who wish to help for only one or two days. Virtual training will be provided.
Please see the position description below for details and application instructions (or click here to download a pdf version).*
If you have any questions or would like to sign up as a volunteer, please contact Cris Salazar, CWC Habitat Restoration Program Manager, at email@example.com.
*Please disregard the Aug 20th deadline noted in the Position Description. The CWC will take applications until both positions are filled.
