A position announcement I shared in October (http://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=22336) was re-released last week. The new search ends on April 18, 2017.
Job announcement for the Associate Director / Field Research Coordinator for the Western Region IR-4 Program.
Position is located at the UC Davis campus.
For those unfamiliar with the IR-4 program, this is a really important program funded by the USDA and the Land Grant Universities to help ensure specialty crop growers gain registered uses of reduced risk crop protection chemicals. There are program areas in food crops, ornamental crops and also biopesticides. This position helps lead and coordinate research and prioritize ag industry pest control needs for 13 western states and several Pacific island territories.
