2018 Call for Positions

ANR solicited proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions from January - September 2018. The 2018 call aimed to identify positions for strengthening and rebuilding the ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Due to current budget situation the release of approved positions is on hold; VP Humiston's announcement.

 

There was a new position development process – for the complete process and timeline refer to 2018 CE positions flowchart.

Goals:

  • It is designed to be a consultative process with opportunity for input from UC ANR academics and clientele/stakeholders.
  • Those involved in position development are expected to take a collaborative approach and statewide perspective to identifying critical needs, and looking forward to emerging challenges.
  • The goal is have a manageable number of priority positions proposed, relative to funding realities.
  • The new process increases success rate for proposed positions given each group agrees on priority positions for submittal.

Phased Approach:

  • The advisor and specialist processes each have three phases with groups working collaboratively to develop proposals, and reviewing earlier proposals to add proposals that they think are higher priority.
  • Each proposal development phase is intended to include internal consultation and external input from ANR stakeholders. We expect and strongly encourage ANR academics to engage with external stakeholders, including commodity groups, cooperating programs, agency partners, community groups, and others to explicitly discuss priority needs to for positions. Groups of related program areas and campus-based departments should discuss and develop complimentary position proposals to strengthen the ANR network.
  • You can communicate with the people who are able to submit positions and work collaboratively with them in these efforts. 
  • The proposals that didn’t make it in earlier phases could be picked up during the subsequent phases. They can be found on the proposal ideas web page.

Position Details

40 Water Justice Policy and Planning Specialist

This position will provide statewide leadership in water justice policy and planning, with a focus on water quality, quantity, and access for disadvantaged communities. The research agenda for this position will coalesce around the intersection of water quality, exposure to water pollution and community health with a general focus on applied issues related to water access and water governance.  A research agenda might include better understanding of community-based resilience to the water-related impacts of climate change, barriers disadvantaged communities face in accessing quality drinking water, environmental and human health effects of emerging contaminants from point and diffuse pollution in the aquatic environment, waste water challenges and solutions, operationalizing the Human Right to Water, and democratic water governance. The successful candidate will understand often competing agricultural, environmental and urban demands for water supply and quality, will conduct applied research, and will leverage, analyze and synthesize existing data and resources being produced in our land grant institutions. The candidate will also find creative ways to bridge research to policy gaps, developing and translating scholarship to inform local, regional, and state water policy.
