Biological Oceanography

Program Officer for Biological Oceanography Fading line

Consider becoming part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) as a Program Officer for the Biological Oceanography Program for a two year appointment (either as an IPA* or Visiting Scientist). Program Officers carry out the primary responsibility of NSF to support exciting, innovative, and merit-reviewed basic research and education.  In Biological Oceanography, we expect to recruit and replace one Program Officer each year.  We need marine ecology expertise that spans from microbial ecology to upper trophic levels.  This is a wonderful professional experience that will serve you and the oceanographic community well. If you are interested in serving as a Program Officer please contact the Program anytime. Given the lead time needed for planning staff changes, it is beneficial to discuss possible opportunities well in advance of them being available. You are also encouraged to contact former IPAs for the Biological Oceanography Program to discuss their experience and learn more about being a part of NSF.

*IPA Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA). The Intergovernmental Personnel Act Mobility Program provides for the temporary assignment of personnel between the Federal Government and state and local governments, colleges and universities, Indian tribal governments, federally funded research and development centers, and other eligible organizations.
