The Tennessee Valley Research and Extension Center of Auburn University is seeking candidates for the position of Associate Director. The individual selected for this position will provide leadership to the center in collaboration with the Regional Director, Director of Experiment Station Research Operations, administration, Department Heads, and Dean for the College of Agriculture and the Director and Associate Directors of the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station.

The Tennessee Valley Research and Extension Center is located just north of the Tennessee River, a stone’s throw from Interstate 65, right in the heart of Alabama’s top cotton-producing region and directly on the cutting edge of cotton research. Though TVREC research projects frequently target corn, soybeans and wheat, cotton claims the lion’s share of attention, and it is for its cotton research that the center is nationally recognized. The TVREC was an early convert to precision agriculture technologies and today has a full inventory of global positioning system-based equipment that includes autosteer tractors, yield monitors and light-bar guidance systems.
