NSF Job Opportunity: Science Education Administrator (Program Director)

Application Deadline: August 10, 2018

The Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL), at the National Science Foundation announces a nationwide search for a program director with expertise on research and development on broadening participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The Program Director will provide leadership on the NSF Inclusion Across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (NSF INCLUDES) program as well as in other Broadening Participation emphasis programs in the Division such as Advancing Informal Stem Learning (AISL) and Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST).

DRL invests in projects to improve the effectiveness of STEM learning for people of all ages. Its mission includes promoting innovative research, development, and evaluation of learning and teaching across all STEM disciplines by advancing cutting-edge knowledge and practices in both formal and informal learning settings. DRL also promotes the broadening and deepening of capacity and impact in the educational sciences by encouraging the participation of scientists, engineers, and educators from the range of disciplines represented at NSF. DRL's role in the larger context of Federal support for education research and evaluation is to be a catalyst for change -- advancing theory, method, measurement, development, and application in STEM education. The Division seeks to advance both early, promising innovations as well as larger-scale adoptions of evidenced-based educational innovations. In doing so, it challenges the field to create the ideas, resources, and human capacity to bring about the needed transformation of STEM education for the 21st century.
