Department: VICE CHANCELLOR - RESEARCH - 061800 Department Description: The Research Core Facilities Program (RCFP) was created in early 2015 to improve visibility and sustainability of shared scientific research laboratories (core facilities). Core facilities operate as unique small business and therefore have unique administrative support needs. Initial programs include management of the ongoing implementation of Core Facility Admin Software (Stratocore PPMS) in campus core facilities including business process mapping and configuration to meet scientific and business needs; development of business plans for each campus core facility which includes in depth review of the program and development of a sustainable model for the shared research facility; and development of a core facility specific equipment maintenance and management program to reduce the high service contract costs of sophisticated scientific equipment.
The Research Core Facilities Program is an Office of Research unit developed to enable researchers at UC Davis to have access to state-of-the-art technology and expertise for their scientific research, to streamline the core facility administration while improving accountability and transparency and reducing redundancy and providing training opportunities for faculty graduate students and staff. Development of coordinated, centralized programs requires considerable use of change management tools and skills.
In addition to working with the RCFP ED and Faculty Director, as the sole programmatic analyst for RCFP this position will work with the Faculty Directors and Technical Directors of more than 100 core facilities. Many cores have administrative assistance in their home departments, but some do not, thus the level of management and troubleshooting provided by the Program Manager will vary in complexity and effort depending on the need of the individual facility.
