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
110 Livestock-Water-Human Community Interaction Specialist
This specialist will focus on water and environmental quality issues that emerge at the interface of California’s diverse livestock production systems, the ecosystems they rely on, and the human communities that depend on and/or are influenced by these extensive and intensive livestock production systems. Areas of programmatic emphasis will include: (1) developing beneficial management practices to control fecal pathogens in surface water supplies and resolving the real or perceived relationship to livestock production; (2) develop interventions to reduce environmental dissemination of zoonotic pathogens and improve food safety in mixed produce-livestock production systems; and (3) develop science-based control practices to reduce the exchange of infectious diseases between livestock and wildlife populations, such as E. coli O157:H7 and Avian Influenza. A veterinarian with additional graduate training in either zoonotic disease control, range ecology, or epidemiology who is willing to take a leadership role on these complex issues but work within the network of ANR specialists and advisors as a collaborative team member will have an excellent opportunity to make significant contributions to the science and policy surrounding these issues. This position will be located in Veterinary Medicine Extension, School of Veterinary Medicine, UC Davis.
Veterinary Medicine Extension, Department of Population Health and Reproduction, School of Veterinary Medicine, UC Davis.
Proposed Area of Coverage
