Natural Resource Specialist 2 (Instream Flow Study Assistant)
The Instream Flow Study Assistant will lead field staff in developing and conducting instream flow studies on streams to determine instream base flows. S/he will determine base flow needs for fish which is one component of the Integrated Water Resources Strategy (IWRS). The strategy is designed to help Oregon meet its future water needs in terms of water quantity, water quality, and ecosystem functions by coordinating efforts between agencies at the state level, providing the tools and coordination needed by local governments and working constructively with federal agencies.
This position will also help the water program understand the impact of climate change on instream needs and develop techniques, strategies and tools to address these challenges and will work with ODFW's research groups to understand species flow needs into the future including the use of species distribution models, climate data, ecosystem service models to evaluate different land/water use scenarios.
