2018 Call for Positions

December 20, 2019 Vice President Humiston announced the release of the following six positions for recruitment.

  • #12 Production Horticulture Advisor, San Diego County
  • #42 Agronomy Area Advisor, Merced County
  • #54 Livestock and Natural Resources Advisor, Siskiyou County
  • #58 Nutrition, Family, and Consumer Sciences Area Advisor, San Mateo-San Francisco Counties
  • #62 Vegetable Crops and Small Farms Advisor, Riverside County
  • #66 Pomology and Water/Soils Area Advisor, Kings County

 

In the fall of 2019, UC ANR embarked on the 2019 reconfirmation process. VP Humiston asked UC ANR programmatic groups (listed below) to reconfirm the 2018 CE position proposals list -- in order to fill a limited, small number of CE positions. She asked if there were higher priorities/critical needs/emergency gaps that weren't on the 2018 list of 46 but should be? Those were added to this web page at the end of November 2019, using the template and criteria below. Any 2018 proposals that needed significant revisions were updated and re-posted below.

  • Any proposal numbered above 46 was 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 was already under recruitment.

From January - September 2018 initiated the 2018 CE position call, soliciting proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions. The call aimed to identify positions for strengthening and rebuilding the ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Due to the budget situation the release of approved positions was on hold until the fall of 2019; VP Humiston's 2018 announcement.

UC ANR also continues to pursue non-traditionally funded positions as a complimentary strategy to grow the programmatic footprint. As of January 2020, UC ANR developed funding partnerships to deploy $2.7M in non-traditionally funded positions: 9 academics and 14 programmatic staff. There are UC ANR resources on:

Position Details

46 Fire Area Advisor

The fire trends are clear - fire probabilities in California have increased over 50% since the 1960s. More people are living near and within flammable landscapes, and are not aware of the risk until it is too late. With California’s increasing population and changing climate, more are living in harm’s way – not just from the direct impact of fires but from the indirect impact as well. The  fire budget is the fastest growing part of the state's agricultural and natural resources agency budgets, but UC currently only has a limited presence. This advisor position is designed to complement the proposed fuels management specialist as well as current UC expertise in fire and fuels. This focus of the position is on collaborative, science-based fire management and planning on public and private lands in the North Coast region, and to promote fire-adapted communities and ecosystem resilience. Important issues to be addressed by this position include fire effects on natural and human communities; partnerships that enable active fire management; training and networking to increase capacity; and outreach and education focused on fire ecology, fire management, prescribed fire, fuels management, and community wildfire resilience.
