NSF Job Opportunity: Science Education Administrator (EDU/EES Program Director)
The Division of Equity for Excellence in STEM (EES) announces a nationwide search for rotator Program Directors across several of its programs at the National Science Foundation. NSF Program Directors bear the primary responsibility for carrying out the Agency’s overall mission – to support innovative and merit-reviewed projects in basic research and education that contribute to the nation’s technical strength, security, and welfare. To discharge this responsibility requires not only knowledge in the appropriate STEM and education fields, but also a commitment to high standards, a considerable breadth of interest in and receptivity to new ideas, a strong sense of fairness, good judgment, and a high degree of personal integrity.
EES is interested in candidates who have the knowledge and experience working with a diverse group of individuals, have expertise in one of the STEM disciplines or in STEM education, and in promoting diversity in STEM with emphasis on broadening participation of underrepresented groups and institutional capacity building. The successful candidates will have the ability to provide leadership across NSF and in the external scientific community. This program officer position will be assigned to work with at least two EES programs and activities noted here: Excellence Awards in Science and Engineering (EASE), which is made up of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM) and the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST ) programs, NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES program (INCLUDES), EES activities to broaden the participation of persons with disabilities in STEM and STEM Education (PWD), or Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP). The incumbent will also have the opportunity to contribute to other EES/EDU programs.
