We are currently hiring a Program Coordinator for our new AgBioFEWS Research Training program.
Posting: Program Coordinator (SHRA)
Position #: 00107298
We are searching for a program coordinator for our graduate training program “Agricultural Biotechnology in Our Evolving Food, Energy and Water Systems”.
This program is broadly interdisciplinary, including natural and social sciences as well as humanities. The Program Coordinator is responsible for day to day administration and planning under direct supervision of the program director. A large proportion of the job will involve interactions with doctoral students working toward degrees in disciplines ranging from public administration to molecular genetics. The program was just recently funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through its National Research Traineeship (NRT) initiative. Because this 5-year program is just getting started, the person in this position will have the opportunity to contribute to growing and shaping the program. To integrate into the program, the Program Coordinator will participate in classes and activities.Apply to job
