2018 Call for Positions
From January - September 2018 ANR solicited proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions. 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 was on hold; VP Humiston's 2018 announcement.
In the fall of 2019, Vice President Humiston asked UC ANR programmatic groups (listed below) to reconfirm the 2018 CE position proposals list -- anticipating being able to fill a limited, small number of CE positions. She has asked if there are higher priorities/critical needs/emergency gaps that aren’t on the 2018 list of 46 but should be? Those will be added this web page at the end of November 2019, using the template and criteria below.

31 Forest and Fuels Management Specialist
The position will work in the area of fire prone forest ecosystem management. Vegetation management choices, fire fighting strategies, and a highly variable climate, have resulted in forest stands and landscapes that often have high levels of physiological stress and catastrophic rates of mortality. This position will work toward matching resources to risks and will work across many public and private entities, developing innovative approaches and spreading them to similar areas, and developing coordinated communication and education programs that reaches and connects all of the relevant public and private parties. Geographically appropriate actions such as the increased use of prescribed fire in areas with lower population densities or piloting new technologies to quickly identify and help extinguish new wildfires will be among the many issues addressed.
