JOB #: 1707088
Full Time; Career
Full Salary Range: $76,650-$139,200/monthly. Salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.
UCSC strives to embrace diversity in all its forms; it strives to be an inclusive community that fosters an open, enlightened & productive environment.
Involves developing, interpreting and implementing financial concepts for financial planning, resource planning (dollars), and control of organizational budget. May analyze and prepare recommendations for financial plans, including annual resource allocations, future requirements, and operating forecasts.
Under general direction of the Assistant Dean, the Director of Finance is independently responsible for directing a wide range of financial and administrative operations, activities and services in support of Baskin School of Engineering's (BSOE) academic priorities.
The BSOE Director of Finance is called upon to plan and manage a variety of resources from multiple sources. This requires the incumbent to ensure consistency, reliability and integrity in fiscal and business processes coupled with elasticity and flexibility in operational structures and resource utilization. BSOE is constantly facing challenges to absorb programmatic growth by stretching and integrating resources, and the Director plays an essential role in identifying creative approaches to facilitate this process and minimize conflicts between new and established practices. This includes navigating a complex set of competing demands within existing regulatory and procedural constraints; a process requiring close interaction and communication with campus and system offices.
During 2015-16, BSOE had an annual operating budget of $20 million, 98 faculty FTE, and about 100 instructional and research staff. Extramural contracts and grants totaled about $36 million. BSOE is also pursuing growth in revenues from gifts to support both selected research and instruction endeavors, and is launching new graduate degree programs in the Silicon Valley with anticipated revenues from Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition (PDST). In addition, BSOE has a small endowment totaling close to $14 million.
The Director is responsible to manage all these resources and is the chief fiscal advisor to BSOE executive leadership, serving as a member of the school's senior management team. The incumbent has regular interaction within BSOE with the Dean, Associate Deans, Assistant Dean, Department Chairs, Institutes and Center Directors, and Department Managers. The incumbent also has regular interaction with senior staff and selected executives within the campus administration, participating on campus committees and special task forces representing BSOE, while function as the primary liaison with the campus administration on all BSOE financial and business matters.
