Paid Positions


Fishery Technician III

Closes: Feb 28, 2017
The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) assists four tribes in the co-management of their treaty fishing rights within the Columbia River Basin. A key to ensuring our member tribes have a sustainable fishery is the ability to collect and assess information on the status of anadromous and resident fish populations and their habitats within the Columbia River Basin. The position offered is associated with the Fishery Science Department’s Habitat Group. This group assists CRITFC and the four treaty tribes with collection and analysis of data pertaining to stream habitat conditions, habitat restoration, and stream ecology. This position will focus on monitoring status and trends in habitat conditions for ESA-listed spring Chinook salmon in the Grande Ronde River Basin. Stream habitat data will be collected at 25 sites in the Upper Grande Ronde River and Catherine Creek basins using the Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP) protocol (www.champmonitoring.org), a broad standardized monitoring program currently being implemented in 18 different watersheds across the Columbia River Basin and other areas in the Pacific Northwest. The primary objectives of these positions are to collect data necessary to 1) Assess current status, trends, and key limiting factors in fish habitat characteristics (e.g. water temperature, pool habitats, streamflow, and fine sediment) to the viability of spring chinook salmon populations, and 2) Evaluate effectiveness of stream restoration actions aimed at improving key limiting habitat factors.

Human Resources Assistant (Administrative)

Closes: Feb 17, 2017

The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission assists four tribes in the co-management of their treaty rights within the Columbia River Basin. The position offered is associated with the Commission’s Fish Science Department. The production research group is engaged in several research projects designed to investigate salmon and steelhead limiting factors which include predation. For the last decade sea lion presence and consumption of salmon near Bonneville dam has been increasing and our research program is designed to assist managers in reducing sea lion occurrence near the dam along with investigating sea lion abundance and predation rates. The duration of this position is limited to three and a half months.

Fishery Biologist

Closes: Jan 9, 2017
The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission assists four tribes in the co-management of their treaty fishing rights within the Columbia River Basin. A key to ensuring our member tribes have a sustainable fishery is the ability to collect and assess information on the status of anadromous and resident fish populations and their habitats within the Columbia River Basin. The position offered is associated with the Fishery Science Department’s Habitat Group. This group assists CRITFC and the four treaty tribes with collection and analysis of data pertaining to stream habitat conditions, habitat restoration, and stream ecology. The successful candidate will become part of a team conducting research into fish-habitat relationships as they relate to prioritization of habitat restoration in Columbia River tributaries. Habitat is defined broadly to include physical in-stream conditions (water temperature, streamflow, pool availability, fine sediment, etc.) but also riparian conditions, food availability, and overall watershed health. The primary job responsibilities through March 31, 2018, are to supervise the collection of field data and assist with analysis and reporting on fish habitat conditions for ESA-listed spring chinook salmon populations in the Grande Ronde River Basin of Northeast Oregon. Stream habitat data will be collected using the Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program (CHaMP) protocol (www.champmonitoring.org), a standardized monitoring program currently being implemented across the Columbia River basin and other areas in the Pacific Northwest. Upon extension of the position to permanent status after March 31, 2018 based on available funding, the duties of this position may evolve to include continued supervision of field crews, advanced data analyses and interpretation suitable for peer-reviewed publications and presentations supporting stream habitat restoration prioritization as it benefits fish and other aquatic biota of high importance to the four treaty tribes.
