About UC Merced

The University of California, Merced, is the newest of the University of California system's 10 campuses and the first American research university built in the 21st century. With nearly 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students, UC Merced offers an environment that combines a commitment to diversity, inclusion, collaboration and professional development. With bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs, strong research and academic partnerships, and community involvement, the UC Merced campus is continually evolving and requires talented, knowledgeable and dynamic educators, researchers, management and staff.


Ranked among the best public universities in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, UC Merced is uniquely equipped to provide educational opportunities highly qualified students from the San Joaquin Valley and throughout California. The campus enjoys a special connection with nearby Yosemite National Park, is on the cutting edge of sustainability in construction and design, and supports the economic development of Merced and the region.


In Fall 2016, UC Merced broke ground on a $1.3 billion public-private partnership that is unprecedented in higher education. The Merced 2020 Project will nearly double the physical capacity of the campus by 2020, enhancing academic distinction, student success and research excellence. In 2018, UC Merced opened the Downtown Campus Center, a $33 million, three-story administrative building located in the heart of Merced.

About the Job

Staff Research Associates (SRAs) perform or supervise the performance of laboratory and/or field experimental procedures in support of academically-supervised research and teaching within any of the disciplines offered at the University; and perform other related duties as required.

Incumbents perform technical determinations and/or make technical observations in one or more fields of scientific endeavor that usually yield technical information and data about the phenomena under investigation. The fields include but are not limited to anthropology, applied mathematical sciences, bioengineering, chemical sciences, cognitive sciences, comuter scince and engineering, critical race and ethnic studies, environmental systems science, economics, English, environmental engineering, global arts, history, management and business economics, material sciences and engineering, mechanical engineering, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, public health, sociology, foreign languages, and writing. Installation, operation, and maintenance of laboratory and field instruments may be an essential part of the duties. The information and data yielded are used primarily for research and teaching, but may also relate to public service.

Incumbents work under academic supervision; they may participate or assist in teaching activities by discussing experimental procedures with students, demonstrating procedures, working with faculty in presenting, developing or modifying portions of course material, and by providing technical supervision to students and visitors during assigned periods. However, they do not have formal responsibility for teaching and course content. Normally, engagement in teaching activities is ancillary to engagement in research activities under academic supervision.



Essential Duties

Under general supervision, incumbents may (a) direct the work of a medium-sized laboratory having a staff of at least one Staff Research Associate or (b) perform laboratory and/or field experimental work that requires a combination of journey level knowledge and skill in two ordinarily distinct occupational fields or scientific disciplines, or (c) undertake research project in collaboration with academic supervisors, making innovative contributions pertaining to laboratory and/or field experimental procedures which may not change the course of an investigation but do indicate a significant independent contribution beyond the journey level.

Incumbents typically consult with academic supervisors on the nature and general plan of approach to basic research problems; read and abstract articles or value in the prosecution of broad research problems; organize and work out all techniques involved; may plan and assign the work of lower-level SRA s advising them on problems they are unable to solve; contribute original ideas in the prosecution of laboratory and/or field-phases of research; standardize new techniques and train other staff personnel and students in their use; perform specialized procedures in two ordinarily distinct occupational field or scientific disciplines; and prepare complete written reports of laboratory and/or field experimental methods, analysis, and information gathered.

May supervise or lead staff and student employees.

Qualifications

Incumbents are expected to possess the skills, knowledge, and abilities essential to the successful performance of the duties assigned to the positions. These skills, knowledge, and abilities are typically acquired through a combination of extensive study and experience.

Background Check

Background check and fingerprinting may be required.
