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 multiple Program Director positions within Division of Social & Economic Sciences (SES), Directorate for Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBE), Arlington, VA. The SES Division supports research to develop and advance scientific knowledge focusing on economic, legal, political and social systems, organizations and institutions. In addition, SES supports research on the intellectual and social contexts that govern the development and use of science and technology. SES programs consider proposals that fall squarely within disciplines, but they also encourage and support interdisciplinary projects, which are evaluated through joint review among Programs in SES, as well as joint review with programs in other Divisions, and NSF-wide multi-disciplinary panels, as appropriate.
SES is seeking Program Directors for the Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) Program, Political Science Program, Sociology Program, Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) Program, and the Science, Technology, and Society (STS) Program.
