Oregon State University Division of Extension and Engagement (E&E) invites applications for a Sponsored Programs Director. This is a full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month, professional faculty position. The primary work location for this position is in Corvallis, OR. However, a flexible work arrangement for a remote option within Oregon can be negotiated. The position directly promotes and develops programs, policies, rules, and novel approaches to support the applied research mission for E&E.

The goal of this position is to improve the success of the E&E through oversight and management of external funding and sponsored programs in collaboration with evaluation and research operations of the E&E division, with the outcome of building a strong and diverse grant portfolio, increased external funding resources, and increased communication on available external funding sources for all of E&E’s 600 plus employees.

The position develops, implements, and enforces plans, policies, rules, procedures, systems, programs, and performance standards relating to the external funding enterprise. The position participates in strategic planning efforts as part of the research and evaluation team and serves as a resource to other colleges to develop multi-disciplinary research and external funding efforts, training, and compliance. The position determines resource needs and priorities and makes recommendations to executive leadership. The incumbent will determine training needs and make appropriate arrangements for provision of training.

The position works with groups of faculty, research and evaluation leaders, unit leaders, and members of the management team of the E&E division and others to identify, organize, and coordinate large, complex multi-investigator, multidisciplinary proposals supported by external funding opportunities. Knowledge of sponsor agency policy, procedures, and grants as well as knowledge of state and federal laws, regulations, and guidance relative to provision and oversight of multimillion-dollar projects is expected.
