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
038 Area Silicon Valley Nutrition Family Consumer Science PSE focus
The Silicon Valley Nutrition, Family and Consumer Science Advisor will develop an applied research and extension program to support policy, systems and environment (PSE) interventions that promote healthy families and communities, and will provide leadership to UCCE low-income nutrition education programs funded by Expanded Food and Nutrition Program (EFNEP) and UC CalFresh in Santa Clara and southern San Mateo counties. The emerging focus of nutrition education efforts recognizes that an individual’s health as related to their physical activity and food choices are shaped by all sectors of society including the environment, the structure of their community, public policies and education. UCCE nutrition educators in the Silicon Valley (even without the leadership of an NFCS advisor for the past year) have been accompanying their education programs with support for policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies. This NFCS advisor serving the Silicon Valley would engage at the community and public policy level to create structural change in communities and inform policies that could dramatically increase beneficial health behaviors. This advisor would provide a valuable link between traditional nutrition education and this new focus, which marries education with system and environmental change. There is also tremendous opportunity to further engage our robust Master Gardener Program in PSE strategies leading to access to healthy food through community and school gardens. In addition, this advisor will be able to compliment the work of the newly hired NFCS advisor based in Half Moon Bay (coastal San Mateo County) who with this position in place will be able to work with other multi-county Bay Area advisors and build a UCCE program in San Francisco.
Proposed Area of Coverage
Santa Clara serving the Silicon Valley (San Mateo and parts of Alameda County).
