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: #'s 1, 4, 5, 12, 42.
  • # 18 Wildlife Management Area Advisor is currently under recruitment.
