NSF Office of Polar Programs announces nationwide search for a program director in Polar Cyberinfrastructure

The Office of Polar Programs (OPP) has issued a "Dear Colleague Letter" (DCL) announcing a nationwide search for a Program Director in Polar Cyberinfrastructure. Formal consideration of applications will begin on July 10, 2019 and will continue until a selection is made.

The program director will manage OPP's investments to advance cyberinfrastructure related to polar science and education and has the opportunity to shape future research directions. The successful candidate will be engaged in defining and communicating cyberinfrastructure needs through interactions with the research community, related research programs within OPP, in other divisions of NSF, and in other organizations external to NSF.

OPP seeks an individual who is not only versed in cyberinfrastructure, but that also has experience in the application of cyberinfrastructure to the diverse fields of science that OPP supports. The incumbent will play an active role in developing and managing joint funding competitions with the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, and other organizations within NSF.

It is also expected that the new Program Director will engage with the NSF Big Idea: Harnessing the Data Revolution: https://www.nsf.gov/cise/harnessingdata.
