Become a part of our mission to maintain and strengthen the vitality of the US science and engineering enterprise. For over 60 years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has remained the premier Federal agency supporting basic research at the frontiers of discovery across all fields, as well as science and engineering education at all levels.
The NSF is seeking candidates for Program Director within the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB), Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) in Arlington, VA. The Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB) supports fundamental research and related activities designed to promote understanding of complex living systems at the molecular, subcellular, and cellular levels.
The Division supports research across a broad spectrum of experimental systems, ranging from organisms, such as plants and microbes, to the use of in silico approaches. As stated in the Grant Proposal Guide, proposals to conduct research motivated primarily by relevance to human diseases and health are not appropriate for the division and will be returned without review.
Typical research in areas supported by MCB integrates theory and experimentation and utilizes technologies derived from biological, physical, mathematical, computational and engineering sciences. Projects that address the emerging areas of single molecule or single cell studies, molecular dynamics, small RNA biology, and synthetic biology are particularly welcome. The Division is also interested in projects aimed at understanding and predicting the molecular and cellular underpinnings of adaptation to environmental change.
MCB continues to forge partnerships to support research at the interfaces of biology and physical sciences or engineering, to introduce new analytical and conceptual tools for biological research, and to provide unique education and training opportunities for the next generation of researchers, scientific educators, and scientifically literate citizens.
