California Alliance Academic Coordinator I/Lecturer
The Mathematical and Physical Sciences Dean’s Office invites applications for a full-time Academic Coordinator to implement a new program, called the California Alliance. The California Alliance is a new program, funded by the National Science Foundation-Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate. It is a collaboration between Berkeley, Caltech, Stanford and UCLA, lead by Berkeley. The California Alliance’s goal is to significantly increase the movement of URM students into the most competitive research and teaching careers in the mathematical, physical, and computer sciences and engineering (MPCS&E) fields. It will systematically address ethnic underrepresentation in the particular science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields (STEM) fields and at the institutions where it is most severe and remains seemingly intractable nationally. The California Alliance defines underrepresented minorities (URM) as African Americans, Chicanos, Latinos, Native Alaskans, Native Pacific Islanders, and American Indians. The AC will be the key administrator responsible for day-to-day program development and implementation for the new California Alliance.
As lead institution, Berkeley has the administrative role of coordinating the alliance. The AC will be responsible for working with a cross-institutional team of deans, academic coordinators, institutional researchers, faculty, and staff scientists at the national labs to achieve the outcomes listed below. Some of the California Alliance activities will take place at annual retreat, and the rest at each of the campuses, with coordination to make resources and information available to all the participants, even for those events that take place at the campuses.
• Doctoral degree in social science, science, engineering or education by time of application.
• Experience and ability to work collaboratively with and inspire a diversity of constituent and stake-holder groups.
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
• Knowledge of and experience with statistical methods, particularly multilevel modeling and structural equation modeling.
• Experience and expertise using new media, particularly social networking, conferencing media, and media for preparing and presenting workshops, including technical skill developing Youtube videos or other on-line presentations.
Initial 2-year appointment starts January 1, 2014. Hiring salary range is $61,176 - $88,800, depending on experience.
Applications should be submitted online, and should include a cover letter outlining your experience and qualifications, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, and three letters of recommendation. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality: http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html.
