The National Science Foundation (NSF) is seeking qualified candidates to fill the position of Program Director for the Biological Oceanography Program in the Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE), Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) in Arlington, VA.

These activities provide knowledge critical to addressing many of our nation’s most pressing challenges involving earth processes. OCE supports and promotes collaboration and facilitates development of a diverse scientific and educational community, including international efforts. The Division works with the U.S. ocean sciences academic community to direct funding towards advancing the frontiers of knowledge, developing the next generation of researchers, and enhancing the public’s understanding of ocean sciences. The Division represents this community in the Federal context, coordinates with other Federal agencies and with international partners on research funding and infrastructure management, and participates in development of policy through national and international forums and programs.
The Biological Oceanography Program supports research in marine ecology broadly defined: relationships among aquatic organisms and their interactions with the environments of the oceans or Great Lakes.
