Dear Ocean Sciences Professional,
The National Science Foundation is seeking applicants for the position of Division Director for Ocean Sciences (OCE) in the Geosciences Directorate. We are using every possible avenue to ensure this vacancy announcement is widely advertised and attracts a very diverse pool of highly qualified candidates. We encourage you to consider this potential opportunity to serve as the leader of the OCE Division at NSF and for application details refer you to: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/483044800.
Due to the recent government shutdown in late January, the closing date has been extended to February 20, 2018.
Please note that the federal employment application process is different than those in academia, therefore in addition to your resume and general application, it is strongly recommended that you provide a written narrative to address Executive Qualifications and Professional/Technical Qualifications as outlined in the application materials.
If this opportunity does not fit your current professional or personal situation, but you have recommendations of colleagues whom you believe would be strong candidates, please encourage them to apply. We also encourage you to pass along your recommendations to the search committee, and we will contact candidates directly.
Members of the Search Committee below are available to answer questions you may have.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide us in ensuring NSF selects the most highly skilled and visionary leaders.
