Institutional Research Analyst


Job Opp: Research Investment Studies & Analysis Unit Project Manager

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking for a new addition to the UC Office of Research and Graduate Studies team!  

Because there are many competing demands for UC-wide research funds in these times of fiscal constraint, it is incumbent upon the UC Office of the President to use an established, mature framework to carefully evaluate both the overall and relative merits of its UC-wide research investments, and to make decisions and plans for any future university-wide research initiatives at UC. 

The Research Investment Studies and Analysis Unit (RISA) assists the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies in applying the principles that guide UC-wide research investments, and the processes for decision making and evaluation, to evaluate research investments when considering whether or not to initiate or continue funding. 

Depending on the incumbent's qualifications, salaries will range between $60,800-$89,600 for an MSP-1 or between $66,900-$98,400 for an MSP-2.

Additional information and instructions for submitting and application may be found at http://jobs.ucop.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=55247.

Please feel free to pass along to interested candidates.  Any questions may be referred to Ginny Cox Delaney or to me.
