*Academic Coordinator/Unit 18 Lecturer - Scripps Institution of
Oceanography, UC San Diego*

Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at UC San Diego
<http://scripps.ucsd.edu>*) is committed to academic excellence and
diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. SIO is a
world-renowned center of climate research with approximately 200 principal
investigators leading research programs on all aspects of earth, ocean and
atmospheric sciences. The Masters of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Climate
Sciences and Policy (CSP) is a one-year professional degree program
that combines
the scientific knowledge of the Earth's climate system with an
understanding of the political, legal, and economic challenges associated
with applying that knowledge in particular governmental and social
contexts. The program's interdisciplinary curriculum is designed to prepare
practitioners to make wise and realistic decisions about the management of
climate impacts and their associated risks.

We seek to fill the position of Assistant Director of the MAS in Climate
Sciences and Policy with a professional in the field of Climate Sciences
and Policy. The Assistant Director of MAS-CSP at Scripps Institution of
Oceanography assumes lead responsibility for on-going development,
management and supervision of all MAS-CSP educational activities conducted
by Scripps and related faculty. These include assistance with course
development, academic mentorship, admissions, oversight of students’
capstone research, and instructional lead of an interdisciplinary
multi-instructor summer course. The Assistant Director is also expected to
coordinate interactions with students, lecturers, campus administrators and
with public and private sectors. The CSP program is overseen by a member
of the faculty who serves as CSP Director. The Assistant Director is
expected to work with the Director and other participating faculty members
to manage the intellectual content, ongoing development of the MAS-CSP
degree, as well as courses offered by SIO faculty and researchers. The
Assistant Director reports to the SIO Department Chair while working
closely with the MAS-CSP Program Director.

Additionally, the incumbent will serve as a Unit 18 Lecturer when
fulfilling teaching responsibilities. The successful candidate will
participate in teaching as an instructor or co-instructor of selected
MAS-CSP courses including ones in the candidate’s area of specialization.
The Assistant Director works closely with the MAS-CSP Director, the MAS-CSP
Steering Committee, staff in the SIO Education Department, SIO Alumni
Office, and faculty and researchers across UCSD. In addition, the
Assistant Director is expected to develop and maintain an extensive,
professional network with external individuals, organizations, and
businesses related to Climate Science and Policy and act as a bridge
between external organizations and the university.

The candidate ideally has credentials in climate sciences and experience in
some aspect of national, international, or local science policy, or in a
related communication, business or non-governmental organization. The
successful candidate should have a college degree (MS, PhD or equivalent
experience) in a field relevant to climate sciences (i.e. climate sciences,
earth sciences, chemistry, atmospheric sciences, oceanography) as well as
policy-relevant experience. Significant experience in organizations
involved with implementing and communicating climate policy is desired. The
successful candidate will have experience and interest in teaching,
mentoring, research or service towards building an equitable and diverse
scholarly environment. Substantial initiative, leadership, creativity
within the parameters of existing University guidelines (which could
include research and grant-writing related to developing the program), and
an established professional network within related fields are expected.

The payroll title will be proposed (subject to approval) at the Academic
Coordinator I, or II level, commensurate with education and experience,
which is subject to review and reappointment every two (or more) years. Salary
will depend on the experience of the successful applicant and will be based
on the UCSD pay scales.

For full consideration, please apply by the 4/7/17 deadline at:
