Position Available: HVRL Administrative Assistant

Hudson Valley Research Laboratory, Highland, NY 12472

Cornell University scientists at Hudson Valley Research Laboratory (HVRL) conduct applied research to improve the production of fruit and vegetable crops grown in New York State. Research-based information is provided to New York farmers through educational programs organized by Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) and participating CCE associations from Suffolk County in Long Island to Plattsburgh in the Champlain Valley and to Lockport in the Lake Ontario fruit-growing region.

Research from the HVRL provides farmers with science based evidence on effectiveness of new production methods that meet the stringent environmental standards required for modern agriculture. Programs at HVL are especially important to sustained viability of fruit farms in the Hudson Valley, and a viable agriculture is ultimately the best way to preserve open space in the rapidly developing corridor between Albany and New York City.

The laboratory is in need of an experienced administrative assistant to provide a full range of high level and complex administrative support to the HVRL Director, faculty and staff. An Associates Degree in business administration, with six years’ experience in a high level administrative position or equivalent combination of education and experience is required.

Cornell AgriTech will be posting the position soon. Thank you for your support: pjj5@cornell.edu
