NSF Job Opportunity: Temporary Program Directors in The Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL) (EHR) (Applications Due 7/15/19)

The Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL), in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) announces a nationwide search for temporary Program Directors at the National Science Foundation. Applications are due by July 15, 2019.

DRL seeks program officers with research and development expertise in one or more of the following areas at the pre-K-12 level: assessment of STEM learning; science education research (e.g., the learning and teaching of biology, chemistry, earth science, or physics); and mathematics or statistics education (e.g., the learning and teaching of mathematics or statistics).

DRL supports innovative research, development, and evaluation of learning and teaching across all science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines in both formal and informal learning settings, and in any age group. A major goal of DRL research and development awards is to enhance the science of broadening participation in STEM. DRL programs support innovations in theory, methods, measurement, development, and applications in STEM education.

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Successful candidates will be expected to work collaboratively with staff and other program officers primarily in the Discovery Research preK-12 (DRK-12) program but may be expected to work in other DRL programs. They will also be expected to work closely with staff across divisions and directorates on cross-cutting programs of importance to the mission of the Agency.

NSF Program Directors have an unparalleled opportunity and responsibility to ensure NSF-funded research and development activities are at the forefront of advancing fundamental knowledge. In support of that, Program Directors are responsible for extensive interaction with academic research communities, formal and informal educational organizations, industry, as well as interaction with other Federal agencies that may lead to development of interagency collaborations. Within this context, Program Directors solicit, receive and review research and education proposals, make funding recommendations, administer awards and undertake interaction with research communities in these fields. The position requires a commitment to the highest research standards and ethical conduct, a considerable breadth of interest, receptivity to new ideas, a strong sense of fairness, good judgment, and a high degree of personal integrity.
