Students will get some real world experience in using ArcGIS applications like Collector and Field Maps to collect ecological data on tablets and transmitting the data to our lab. This often requires some prep work in using ArcGIS Online web maps and other map sources (e.g., onX) for trip planning, but also troubleshooting when the apps aren’t cooperating and having to use other tools, i.e., a map and compass or GPS to navigate.
The Northwestern Bat Hub at Oregon State University-Cascades in Bend, OR is hiring for seasonal student field technician positions to assist in conducting acoustic monitoring as part of our North American Bat Monitoring (NABat) effort in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. The student technician will be working with a crew lead to assist in deploying ultrasonic bat detectors often in remote locations throughout the Pacific Northwest. This position requires a large amount of time in the field: applicants must be flexible in when and where they will be working given changing field conditions and project needs; camping the entire summer; fieldwork often occurs in difficult weather conditions, sometimes involving tough hikes with heavy packs containing recording equipment and deployment gear.
