They want an expert for a maximum of $25 per hour? If they find someone,
it'll be a pretty good bullshitter looking for experience.

Note that it's an "academic year" position -- lots and lots of vacation
time. This would actually be a good job for e.g. a retired person who
doesn't need lots of money. Also note that Eugene is not exactly an
area with a high cost of living.
I take it you're not from Oregon. Eugene is the second largest city.
Prices are not quite up to the San Jose at its peak, but there are no
bargains left in any of the urban sections of the state. It's certainly
far more expensive here than in the midwest or most of the south.

On the other hand, it's a university town, and one of the most
environmentally- and fitness-conscious cities in the country.

Depends where you look in the midwest, of course. It's certainly cheaper
than Minneapolis or Chicago. It's even cheaper than Cleveland or
Columbus. It's cheaper than Atlanta. So yeah, I stick by my comment.
It's all a matter of which perspective you're looking from. ;-)

FYI, I'm pulling my info from
