Job Details

The Biological Oceanography Program within the Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) in the Directorate of Geosciences (GEO), U.S. National Science Foundation, announces a nationwide search for a Program Director (Rotator) with experience and expertise in any area of biological oceanography or marine ecology. The program anticipates filling multiple rotator positions over the next year, and we encourage applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in science.  

The Biological Oceanography Program supports fundamental research in biological oceanography and marine ecology (populations to the ecosystems) broadly defined: relationships among aquatic organisms and their interactions with the environments of the oceans or Great Lakes. The person selected for this position will work in a team of Program Directors and support staff that oversee the Biological Oceanography Program. The Program Director's core duties and responsibilities will be administering the merit review process, making proposal recommendations, working to balance the award portfolio across the broad range of disciplines supported by the Program, supporting a diverse science community and coordinating, and working with other programs in NSF and other Federal agencies and organizations.

NSF Program Directors bear the primary responsibility for carrying out the agency's overall mission to support innovative science and merit-reviewed activities in basic research and education that contribute to the nation's technical strength, security, and welfare. This responsibility requires the appropriate scientific expertise and breadth of knowledge as well as a commitment to high standards, receptivity to new ideas, and a high degree of personal integrity.

To be considered, please send Mike Sieracki (msierack@nsf.gov) contact information, a current CV, and a statement describing the candidate's background that specifically relates to the position duties and requirements. We will begin consideration of candidates on December 1 and position(s) will remain open until filled.

Sincerely,

Terry Quinn
