Senior Producer-Director – Davis, CA, Job ID 41989

Location: UC ANR - Davis

Date Posted: September 21, 2022
Closing Date: Until Filled

The UC Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program (UC IPM) seeks a collaborative and motivated professional senior producer-director. This position is part of the UC IPM Communications Team, which works closely with other units in IPM such as the Urban and Community IPM Team, Pesticide Safety Team, and IT/Production Team. Working with UC ANR experts, the senior producer-director designs and creates high quality images and videos about integrated pest management for pest management practitioners.

Under the direction of the Photo Librarian, this position is responsible for taking and processing still images and video footage of unique and often difficult subjects—a wide variety of pests (arthropods, vertebrates, plant pathogens, and weeds), pest damage, and pest management practices for use on the UC IPM website and in UC IPM publications and products (both online and in print), such as identification card sets, presentations, ag magazines, short instructional videos for YouTube, and online courses. Subjects may need to be photographed under magnification or need special techniques due to rapid movement.

Workflow involves working with the Cooperative Extension advisors, faculty, and instructional design to determine objectives; researching technical information in areas of pest control, crop production, and plant care; survey locations; then performing photography and videography, editing and cataloging images and videos in a digital database using standardized metadata, tagging, and file naming protocols.

This position is a career appointment that is 100% fixed.

Pay Scale: $34.46 to $46.38/hr.

This job is open until filled. The first applicant review date will be on October 21, 2022.  

This position will promote, in all ways consistent with the other responsibilities of the position, accomplishment of the Affirmative Action goals established by the Division.
