The National Science Foundation (NSF) is seeking qualified candidates for an Interdisciplinary Science Advisor position in the Integrative Activities Program, within the Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI), Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), Arlington, VA.
The ACI Division supports and coordinates the development, acquisition, and provision of state-of-the-art cyberinfrastructure resources, tools, and services essential to the advancement and transformation of science and engineering. ACI also supports forward-looking research and education to expand the future capabilities of cyberinfrastructure. By fostering a vibrant ecosystem of technologies and a skilled workforce of developers, researchers, staff, and users, ACI serves the growing community of scientists and engineers, across all disciplines, whose work relies on the power of advanced computation, data-handling, and networking.
In pursuit of this mission, ACI supports a wide range of cyberinfrastructure technologies within a collaborative ecosystem, including: advanced computing environments; innovative and sustainable data-intensive cyberinfratructure; robust community software suites, tools, libraries and programming environments at the frontiers of computational science for discovery; and secure digital research networks of various reach and granularity. ACI also supports comprehensive education and workforce development programs, scholarly exchanges, and virtual organizations to enable the productive use, sustainable maintenance, and effective governance of the infrastructure it supports. In these efforts, ACI collaborates with all NSF Offices and Directorates to develop models, prototypes, and common approaches to cyberinfrastructure that open new frontiers for discovery, furthering the mission of the National Science Foundation and national science and engineering priorities.
ACIs divisional activities are managed by staff highly qualified in the appropriate domains (Software, Data, High Performance Computing, etc.). There is a clear need in todays research environment for a cohesive cyberinfrastructure that promotes scientific advances through collaborative efforts across these domains as well as other cyberinfrastructure-rich environments such as scientific facilities and instruments.
