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 National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Program Director in the Physical and Dynamic Meteorology (PDM) program. We are specifically looking for a scientist with broad expertise in physical and dynamic meteorology involving numerical and field experience who could fill this position as soon as possible.
The mission of AGS is to extend intellectual frontiers in atmospheric and geospace sciences by making responsible investments in fundamental research, technology development, and education that enable discoveries, nurture a vibrant, diverse workforce, and help attain a prosperous and sustainable future.
AGS pursues its mission with the aid of Program Directors who exercise leadership across a range of scientific research expertise.
The PDM program supports research involving research into: 1) cloud physics; atmospheric electricity; radiation; boundary layer and turbulence; 2) the initiation, growth, and propagation of gravity waves; 3) all aspects of mesoscale meteorological phenomena, including their morphological, thermodynamic, and kinematic structure; 4) the development of mesoscale systems and precipitation processes; 5) the transfer of energy between scales; and 6) the development of new techniques and devices for atmospheric measurements.
Service to the community as a PDM Program Director affords you substantial opportunities for professional and personal growth and executive experience by interacting with national and international researchers, and administrators involved in a broad range of research and education across the atmospheric and related sciences, helping guide the career development of individual scientists, and shaping the future direction of scientific research, globally.
