The National Science Foundation is seeking qualified candidate for a Program Director position in the Hydrologic Sciences (HS) Program, within the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR), Directorate for Geosciences (GEO), Alexandria, VA.
The job announcement can be found at: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/517246600?org=NSF
The position is open during: 11/19/2018 to 01/02/2019
The Hydrologic Sciences 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 Program supports the study of 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. Studies may address physical, chemical, and biological processes that are coupled directly to water transport. Such research may involve fieldwork, modeling, experimentation, theoretical development, or combinations thereof.
The incumbent Program Director will be knowledgeable in the scientific areas covered by the program and will help identify emerging opportunities in the Geosciences. In addition, the incumbent will be required to undertake the design, development, analysis, documentation, management and implementation of programs and activities within the program and across disciplinary boundaries. The responsibilities of the Program Director will include long-range planning for the areas of science represented by the program; administration of the merit review process and proposal recommendations; preparation of press releases, feature articles, and material describing advances in the research supported; and coordination with other NSF programs as well as those at other Federal agencies and organizations.
