Job Description

Classification Title:

Research Coordinator III

Job Description:

Invasive species problems are complex and multidimensional, yet our approach to their management is often piecemeal and reliant on single disciplinary perspectives. A few notable successes notwithstanding, it is difficult to argue that we are winning the battle. We aim to transform invasive species management through the development of an Invasion Science Research Institute (ISRI) that synergizes the significant research capacity currently distributed across multiple disciplinary-based Departments and Colleges at the University of Florida. The mission is to support the development and implementation of a portfolio of interdisciplinary research to address key challenges in the prevention and control of invasive species that impact natural, agricultural, and urban environments. This will allow ISRI to support UF as a world leader in invasion science, generating new understanding and delivering sustainable solutions for Florida, the US, and beyond.

The Invasion Science Research Institute (ISRI) is seeking a Research Coordinator III who can bring creativity and excellent project coordination, facilitation, communication and leadership skills to our collaborative work environment.
  1. Develop positive and productive partnerships with and among ISRI Affiliate faculty. Work with faculty teams to develop promising interdisciplinary invasion science-related research, identify funding opportunities, and develop proposals to external agencies. Significant efforts may include defining existing underutilized collaborative opportunities and resources for the benefit of the group, developing synergies among programs leading to greater collaboration and impact, coordinating research and training events (25%).
  2. Serve as project manager/coordinator/facilitator for externally funded ISRI project teams. In collaboration with faculty teams, assist in project implementation and execution. Coordinate preparation and submission of project reports and journal articles (20%).
  3. Raise the visibility of ISRI programs via web sites, reports, newsletters, press releases, videos, and social media (20%).
  4. Work with the ISRI director and staff to coordinate event planning, including scheduling, set-up, and on-site coordination for both in-person and virtual Institute seminars, workshops, meetings, symposia and other events (20%).
  5. The coordination and administration of ISRI Faculty Affiliates and Faculty Advisory Committee; liaison to the IT unit, fiscal/travel services unit and external vendors to accomplish program objectives (10%).
  6. Other administrative duties as assigned (5%).
