Applications will be accepted from US Citizens. Due to a recent change in Federal Appropriations Law, only Non-Citizens who are permanent US residents and actively seeking citizenship can be considered for Federal appointments. Therefore, you are required to provide documentation that confirms you are actively seeking citizenship at the time you submit your application. Non-citizens who do not provide documentation will only be considered for the IPA program.
This job opportunity announcement has been AMENDED to extend the closing date to July 31, 2013.
Applicants wishing to apply for a Permanent Appointment should see Job Announcement CMMI-2013-0003.
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 is seeking qualified candidates for a Program Director in the Directorate for Engineering (ENG), Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) Division, Dynamical Systems (DS) Program, Arlington, VA.
The Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI) Division is one of the four academic research divisions in the Directorate for Engineering at the National Science Foundation. Its mission is to fund fundamental research and education in support of the Foundation’s strategic goals directed at advances in the disciplines of civil, mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering, and material design. In addition, the Division has a focus on the reduction of risks and damage resulting from earthquakes and other natural and technological hazards. The Division encourages cross-disciplinary research partnerships at the intersections of traditional disciplines to promote transformative advances in civil mechanical and industrial systems and manufacturing technologies. It also encourages discovery enabled by the use of cross-cutting technologies such as adaptive systems, across all programs of the Division.
The Dynamical Systems (DS) program supports innovative research on the theories of dynamical systems, including new analytical and computational tools, as well as the novel application of dynamical systems to engineered systems. The program is especially interested in transformative research in dynamical systems related to uncertain or stochastic nonlinear systems, discrete nonlinear systems, or infinite dimensional systems, and advances on modeling, simulation, analysis and design of multi-scale multi-physics dynamical systems.
