Job Posting: University of Texas Medical Branch

UMTB is seeking an Ombuds to provide confidential and informal assistance to the faculty of its Galveston campus. Applicants must have a Masters degree and have held a faculty appointment in a university outside of UTMB. No salary or closing date indicated. (UMTB Jobs, job id. no. 12835, via HotJobs.)


  1. Anyone find it curious that this posting sites, under "Specific Job Related Duties:
    -Adheres to the ethical principles of the University and College Ombudsman Association. "

    Someone from IOA want to drop them a line maybe?

  2. Actually, this is not too uncommon. I chalk it up to the delay in implementing a program or simply a failure to update a job description. Fortunately, if/when the incumbent is hired, a Google search for UCOA turns up IOA.
