The National Science Foundation (NSF) is seeking a permanent or rotator candidate to fill the position of Program Director in the Directorate for Geosciences (GEO), Division of Earth Sciences’ (EAR) Hydrologic Sciences (HS) Program. The HS Program focuses on the fluxes of water in the environment that constitute the water cycle as well as the mass and energy transport function of the water cycle. The HS Program supports innovative research on processes from rainfall to runoff to infiltration and streamflow; evaporation and transpiration; the flow of water in soils and aquifers; and the transport of suspended, dissolved, and colloidal components. The HS Program retains a strong focus on linking fluxes of water and the components carried by water across boundaries between various interacting facets of the terrestrial system and the mechanisms by which these fluxes co-organize over a variety of timescales and/or alter fundamentals of water cycle interactions within the terrestrial system. The Program is also interested in how water interacts with the landscape and the ecosystem as well as how the water cycle and its coupled processes are altered by land use and climate. Furthermore, the HS Program participates in the review of proposals for related GEO Directorate research programs, NSF wide initiatives, and collaborative research programs with other Federal agencies.
