NSF Job Opportunity: The National Science Foundation's Division of Human Resource Development (HRD) is Seeking Three Rotator Program Directors

The Division of Human Resource Development (HRD) at the National Science Foundation announces a nationwide search for three rotator program directors who will work with HRD programs that include but are not limited to NSF INCLUDES, CREST, HBCU-UP and LSAMP. Formal consideration of applications will begin mid-September. HRD serves as a focal point for NSF's agency-wide commitment to enhancing the quality and excellence of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and research through broadening participation of historically underrepresented groups - minorities, women, and persons with disabilities. Programs within HRD have a strong focus on partnerships and collaborations to maximize the preparation of a well-trained scientific and instructional workforce for the new millennium.

NSF program directors bear the primary responsibility for carrying out the Agency's overall mission - to support innovative and merit-reviewed projects in basic research and education that contribute to the nation's technical strength, security and welfare. Discharging this responsibility requires knowledge in the appropriate STEM and education fields, a commitment to high standards, a considerable breadth of interest in and receptivity to innovative ideas, a strong sense of fairness, good judgment, and a high degree of personal integrity. HRD is interested in individuals who can work with diverse groups of individuals; understand the value of diversity and inclusion have expertise in one of the STEM disciplines or in STEM education; are knowledgeable of and experienced in promoting diversity and broadening participation of underrepresented groups in academic STEM and understand challenges and issues at MSIs in institutional capacity building. The successful candidates will have the standing to provide leadership across NSF and in the external scientific community and will work with HRD programs that promote understanding of challenges and issues faced by groups underrepresented in STEM.
