Academic Enrichment Programs (AEP) offers UC San Diego undergraduates the opportunity to obtain valuable research-oriented academic or professional preparation in virtually any academic major including science, math, engineering, social sciences and the arts and humanities. AEP initiatives are designed to encourage such students to pursue post-baccalaureate Ph.D.'s, MDs and others by providing them with the experience of conducting research under the guidance of UC San Diego faculty mentors and to present research findings at noted undergraduate research conferences in the company of peers and established scientists.
AEP's enrichment programs include: the Faculty Mentor Program, California Alliance for Minority Participation in Science, Engineering and Mathematics Program (CAMP), Health and Medical Professionals Preparation Program (HMP3), McNair Program; Summer Research Program, UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Conference, and Triton Research & Experiential Learning Scholars (TRELS).
The Faculty Mentor Program (FMP) Coordinator is responsible for the operation of UC San Diego's Faculty Mentor Program, a faculty mentored structured research program for UC San Diego undergraduates in all fields. The program's primary goal is the preparation of UC San Diego undergraduates for success in graduate research programs. As FMP is often a first structured research experience for UC San Diego undergraduates, the Coordinator prepares students for participation in more advanced or competitive research experiences, within Academic Enrichment Programs at UC San Diego or elsewhere. The Coordinator, therefore, is an essential member of the Academic Enrichment Programs staff and serves UC San Diego faculty members, administrators, and researchers at other institutions of higher learning by helping to refine students' research skills and enhance their abilities to pursue further research assistant-ships and/or graduate/professional school admission.
The Coordinator is responsible for designing, maintaining, and adapting a program that fosters student intellectual growth while sharpening their research-related abilities. The Coordinator will accomplish this through recruiting students, recruiting faculty mentors, and facilitating matches between students and faculty members that are mutually beneficial. A variety of events and workshops support the success of the program and the Coordinator will plan and implement student orientations, faculty orientations, a matching event, and workshops throughout the year, culminating in a year end Symposium that includes 100-150 presenters, 300+ attendees, and an outstanding mentor award program.
The Coordinator must collaborate with campus partners to include AEP colleagues, UC San Diego faculty members, staff associated with the Teaching and Learning Commons, the Office of Research Affairs, and members of other campus units in order to maintain awareness of research opportunities available to undergraduates. Provide advising not only on the challenges and rewards of undergraduate research, but on preparation for post-baccalaureate success, including enhancing the student's ability to compete for graduate/professional school admission, a professional career, or post-baccalaureate honors, such as Marshall, Fulbright, or Rhodes fellowships.
Must be able to work overtime, evenings, or alternate work schedule as workload requires.
Must be able to attend professional conferences.
