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.

The NFCS Advisor position takes a holistic approach to the development of programming that is designed to improve the health and well-being of county residents. The Advisor will develop applied research projects for adults, families and youth that address the critical and high priority issues related to nutrition and obesity prevention, including associated issues and public policies relevant to food security, food access, food safety, parenting, and family resource management. The Advisor will provide academic oversight for the federally-funded nutrition education program EFNEP, and the UC Master Food Preserver (MFP) programs throughout the three-county MCP region. A graduate degree is required in the areas of nutrition, health education, family and consumer science, human development, public health or food science. The Advisor must have the ability to transfer research-based principles to program and research design methodologies, and preferably to apply low-literacy and cultural/ethnic principles into extension and research project design elements. The position will be housed in the Sacramento UCCE office and will directly report to the Capitol Corridor MCP Director located in the UCCE Woodland office.
