Antarctic Sciences at NSF
The Antarctic Sciences Section is a small, dynamic group of professionals dedicated to supporting research about the Antarctic and surrounding Southern Ocean. The incumbent will join a group of more than ten program officers who create a collaborative environment that fosters a growing science community and supports new ideas, innovations, and different knowledge systems. In addition to managing the merit review process for proposals, Program Directors develop funding opportunities, work with colleagues in other parts of NSF, collaborate with other federal agencies, and find other ways to increase research and funding opportunities for Antarctic researchers.
