Job Description

DESCRIPTION
The mission of the newly founded Data Science Institute is to advance the scientific foundations for this exciting new field, and to support education and training of students who will be the new leaders in this area. Digital data have emerged as central to addressing critical societal needs and enhancing the quality of life in the coming decades. Data science touches virtually all aspects of life on our planet. At the campus level, UC San Diego already has tremendous strength in this area, ranging across all segments of the university.

For this reason, the Institute has been established as an independent unit that works collaboratively with schools, divisions, departments, centers, and faculty and students across the entire campus. The Institute is overseen by a faculty director, who report to an Oversight Committee chaired by the Chancellor. The Institute will be the administrative home for the newly established undergraduate B.S. major and minor in Data Science, and will work with departments and the Academic Senate to create additional graduate programs in data science. The institute will support collaborations between researchers across campus and will also provide critical resources to support innovation in data science.

The incumbent will use professional concepts and apply organizational policies and procedures to resolve various issues. S/he will work on problems of limited to moderate scope where analysis of situations or data requires a review of multiple factors. The incumbent will exercise judgment within defined procedures and practices to determine appropriate action. Contacts are primarily internal to the department, but may also be external.

Under the general supervision of the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), the incumbent is responsible for financial administration and the management and analysis of all Department funds including state, contract and grant, gifts and donations. Duties include analysis of fiscal data, financial report preparation, forecasting expenses, short and long term budget planning, and creative thinking for various financial situations.

Additionally, the incumbent will serve as the Express Card Administrator and alternate DSA, as well as supervise the administration of payroll processing.
