2016 Call for Positions
On December 14, 2016 UC ANR Vice President Humiston announced the the release of 26 CE positions from the 2016 call for a new round of hiring over the next two years. This new release continues the commitment for hiring to exceed projected turnover, thus achieving the goal of academic growth. And, as funding becomes available, UC ANR will consider additional positions.
January 12, 2016 solicited proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions in the ANR Update. The call identified positions for strengthening and expanding the UC ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Below this public webpage displays all 138 new CE position proposals (there is a search tool to assist in finding proposals).
The online submittal process was open from January 12 – May 5 (5:00 PM) to allow as much time as possible for internal consultation and external input from UC ANR stakeholders in all program areas. Submissions were accepted from the following official submitter groups:
- Strategic Initiative Leaders
- Program Team Leaders
- County and Multicounty Partnership Directors List
- Executive Associate Deans
The Review Phase was completed May 5 – August 1. All proposals were reviewed. The program area and unit reviews were conducted by the Program Teams; geographic groups of County/Multicounty Partnership and Research and Extension Center Directors, and the UC ANR affiliated colleges and school. These groups prioritized and provided rationale for the position proposals under their purview. This input was used to inform UC ANR Program Council’s recommendations and ultimately the UC ANR Vice President’s decisions. More information about the review process is available in the review orientation.
The public comment period was open Jan. 12 through July 11, 2016. Comments can be viewed by clicking the position links below. Comments were reviewed by the review groups, Program Council and the Vice President.

2016 URS Call for Positions
090 Endangered Species Specialist
This Cooperative Extension Specialist will pursue research and outreach focused on conflicts stemming from management of endangered species. The CE Specialist will be housed in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at UC Davis. California is the most populous state in the nation and has a world-leading economy. This places great demands on our environment and has led to California having more endangered species than any other state in the country. This position will address the urgent need to integrate the university research community with stakeholders and constituents whose lives and livelihoods frequently are affected by, the numerous endangered species found across our state. The Specialist will be expected to develop a program that complements existing state-wide university research strengths in endangered species ecology, conservation, and conflicts. These programs will minimize conflicts to diverse industries such as forestry, agriculture, ranching, commercial fishing, urban development, energy production, or others, thereby improving species management. The candidate will develop partnerships with important stakeholders such as federal and state wildlife agencies, US Bureau of Land Management, US National Park Service, US Forest Service, CA Energy Commission, and NGOs/private groups among others.
Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology, UC Davis
