UC Santa Cruz faculty are leading two new collaborative programs funded by grants from UC’s Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives (MRPI) program.

The Division of Physical and Biological Sciences is launching a new Undergraduate Work-Study Research Initiative (WSRI) and is seeking three faculty facilitators to help run it.
These appointments will run from summer 2021 through spring 2022. Summer commitment is minimal given that work-study jobs start in the fall and remain active through spring. Each faculty facilitator will receive $2,000/year.
