This position is perfect for you if you are ready for a challenge and are committed to making significant improvements to one of the world's premier research and science organizations. NIST is located on a beautiful campus in Gaithersburg, Montgomery County, Maryland.
You will work with industry and government partners to lead the development of measurement science and standards required to create a new generation of interoperable, dynamic, and efficient “smart systems” through the convergence of networking, information, and communication technologies with distributed sensing, control, data analytics, and predictive tools. The resulting cyber-physical systems will form the core innovation-based growth engine for the Industrial Internet revolution and grow new high-value American jobs and the economy in a broad range of sectors such as energy, manufacturing, transportation, buildings, critical infrastructure, and emergency response.
The Director, Smart Grid and Cyber-Physical Systems Program Office shall assist the Director, Engineering Laboratory with the operational policies, procedures and activities for the cyber-physical systems engineering programs within Engineering Laboratory (EL). This includes supervising and overseeing the administrative functions, the financial operations, the personnel operations, and budgeting for the Laboratory's cyber-physical systems engineering research and service programs. The daily operations of the Laboratory are managed to assure delivery of quality products and services on time and within budget in a manner that is responsive to customers' needs.
EL is responsible for promoting U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness in areas of critical national priority by anticipating and meeting the measurement science and standards needs of the technology-intensive manufacturing, construction, and infrastructure industries in ways that enhance economic prosperity and improve the quality of life. EL carries out mission functions in
smart grid devices and systems; manufacturing enterprise integration; green manufacturing and construction; building materials and structures; engineering and manufacturing materials, products, processes, equipment, technical data, and standards; fire prevention and control; national earthquake hazards reduction; national windstorm impact reduction; and national construction safety teams.
Additionally, the EL carries out other engineering research and services to support mission functions as may be necessary, including systems integration and engineering; intelligent systems and control; robotics and automation; cyber-physical systems; sustainability and energy efficiency; economic analysis and life cycle assessment; productivity measurement; and safety, resilience, and environmental performance. Measurement science research and services include development of performance metrics, measurement and testing methods, predictive modeling and simulation tools, knowledge modeling, protocols, technical data, and reference materials and artifacts; conduct of inter-comparison studies and calibrations; evaluation of technologies, systems, and practices, including uncertainty analysis; and development of the technical basis for standards, codes, and practices-in many instances via testbeds, consortia, standards and codes development organizations, and/or other partnerships with industry and academia.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) plays a vital role in supporting technical innovation -- critical to the future economic security of our Nation. NIST accomplishes its mission through a broad interdisciplinary approach leveraging its physical sciences and engineering expertise. Its broad scope and technical expertise is matched by few other laboratories in the world. The Institute is organized around scientific and engineering disciplines and encourages research programs that leverage the full talent and expertise across the organization. NIST supports other federal agencies in meeting U.S. Government needs for voluntary consensus standards, and continually advances measurement science through cutting-edge research. NIST plays an increasingly critical role as the convener and coordinator of Federal standard activities as technology is more complex dealing with system-level performance issues, such as interoperability or security, rather than component level performance or specification. NIST's role as a convener and coordinator of Federal standards is critical whether used for federal regulations, federal assistance or private sector standards to meet national need. NIST programs are at the scientific forefront nationally and internationally, and they provide an important contribution in support of industry, academia, and other government entities. NIST is a dynamic and complex organization undertaking research and scientific endeavors in a multidisciplinary, diverse culture. With its state-of-the-art technical expertise, NIST advances industrial competitiveness and economic prosperity through the dissemination of measurements into industry. NIST's human resources are also diverse with over 2,800 full-time employees and over 1,500 foreign and domestic guest researchers, contractors, and other associates.
