We are seeking two summer field technicians to assist in data collection relevant to the study of plant community ecology and wildlife–habitat interactions in young managed forest plantations. The project is focused on the relationships between intensive forest management, early seral plant communities and cervid foraging in the Oregon Coast Range. We have established long term wildlife exclosures and open plots, located in young plantations of varying management intensities, in which plant measurements will be collected this summer. The technicians will assist in plant community measurements, cervid browse surveys and be primarily responsible for measuring conifer seedling and shrub volume. Primary requirements include: (1) basic knowledge of western Oregon flora (advanced knowledge desirable); (2) experience with floristic or forest inventory surveys; (3) proficiency in data collection and entry; (4) keen interest in forestry, wildlife and ecology. The technicians must also be tolerant of sun exposure, be able to hike steep slopes and be able to work long hours in both hot and cool conditions. The duration is from mid-June to mid-September and work hours will be 40+. Base of operations will be in Corvallis and Monmouth, Oregon and field sites are located throughout the Northern Oregon Coast Range. If interested please email Thomas at
