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.

 

Below are the submitted proposals. 

  • Any proposal numbered above 46 has been submitted as an emergency gap proposal during the 2019 reconfirmation process.
  • The following proposals were updated as part of the 2019 reconfirmation process: Advisor #'s 1, 4, 5, 8, 12, 42; and Specialist # 35.
  • # 18 Wildlife Management Area Advisor is currently under recruitment.

This proposal has been formally submitted for the 2018 cycle.

Position Details

09 Orchard Systems Area Advisor

The orchard systems advisor will serve the major industries of walnut, prune, almond, and olives by taking the lead in pathology research in the four-county area.  Diseases pose a substantial risk of devastating orchard systems, which are the highest value commodity in Tehama, Butte, and Glenn Counties, significant in Shasta County, and important statewide.  While the area’s increased disease risk challenges sustainable crop production, it does offer an ideal location for research on disease epidemiology and management solutions that can be practically extrapolated around the state and worldwide.
