Associate Vice President, Tech Parks Arizona (UA) and President, Campus Research Corporation
Join us at the University of Arizona to help create the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The University is now accepting nominations and applications for leader of its technology park operations.
The AVP/President will continue to operate and develop the existing tech park located
on over 1300 acres in Tucson, Arizona. This park houses 40 tenants employing 6500
people in 2 million square feet of space. In addition, a new 65 acre site near the
University campus is ready for immediate development into an additional 2 million
square feet of space.
In addition to developing the physical parks, the new leader must be able to work with
the University to operate the Tech Parks organization in a way that maximizes strategic
benefit to the University. The parks are home to the Arizona Center for Innovation, a
University affiliated incubator, and are expected to house not only businesses attracted
to the vibrant business economy of the Tucson area, but also spin-outs and start ups
from the University. The AVP/President will work closely with other University leaders
and faculty to make the Arizona Tech Parks operation a key component in the
University’s educational, research, and economic development missions.
We are seeking a collaborative leader with success in leading complex development
projects, and who can build and work with teams that include large businesses, start
ups, a major research university, and local, state, and federal jurisdiction partners.
A deep commitment to the University of Arizona’s mission and core values of integrity,
teamwork, and accountability is absolutely essential.
The University of Arizona is a committed Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution.
