Program Officer - Faculty Development
Position Summary (click to see full the job description)

The Faculty Development Program Officer has direct responsibility for administering and managing multiple grant-funded non-scholarship programs in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. In addition, the Faculty Development Program Officer will coordinate pathways for dissemination of TCU faculty research including the supervision of the annual Tribal College & University Research Journal and coordination of the annual tribal college and universities (TCUs) Faculty Research Convening.

The continued growth and development of TCUs create a need for support in areas other than student scholarships. These areas most often include building infrastructure and intellectual capital within the TCUs. In line with the College Fund’s Mission, this position provides for the administration of faculty fellowship programs that support increasing the institutional capacity of TCUs.

The very nature of this position requires a strong belief in and support for education in Native communities. In order to recruit, administer, and provide ongoing support for TCU faculty programs, the incumbent must assist candidates and subsequently the recipients of the various awards. This often includes helping the potential candidates understand the importance of completing the fellowship requirements within the term of the fellowship, and understanding the time commitment involved so that the leaders of the participating TCU may grant appropriate release time to the recipient. The incumbent must provide support and assistance (where appropriate) to the fellowship recipients during those times when completion of the program’s requirements is challenging. An individual, who has excellent program management skills, is familiar with academic research and the demands of writing and completing a Ph.D. dissertation or other graduate degrees can best achieve this. Familiarity of TCUs and the American Indian communities they serve is helpful.

This position also requires a high level of interpersonal contacts with a variety of program stakeholders. The incumbent will develop and foster relationships with their team; members of the College Fund; administration and staff of the TCUs; past, present and potential future fellows; and donors.

Qualified applicants: please send a letter of interest and a current résumé by email (with Word or PDF documents, combined in one attachment, and in the subject line, list your name and Program Officer), to Human Resources at applications@collegefund.org.
