Join our Ranks!

OCE regularly searches for qualified individuals to complete two-year assignements as Associate Program Directors in all of our research disciplines. This is a win-win opportunity. We in OCE gain valuable insight and fresh perspectives from rotators actively engaged in the community, and rotators gain insight into the full breadth of their discipline as well as an understanding of the grantmaking process.

Openings occur periodically as current rotators complete their assignments. Please refer to our Home Page for vacancy announcements (http://www.geo.nsf.gov) or contact the relevant Program Director for more information.


Recruiting Students from Underrepresented Groups

Oceanographic institutions traditionally have difficulty recruiting students from underrepresented groups into graduate programs in oceanography and related fields. The pool of applicants is often very small, and this is a contributing factor to the low numbers presently enrolled in graduate programs. OCE supports undergraduate activities, including those emphasizing programs for underrepresented groups. Students participating in these programs are a potential pool of applicants to your graduate program. Points of contacts and host institutions for undergraduate students who are learning about ocean science and participating in oceanographic research programs are listed at http://www.nsf.gov/home/crssprgm/reu/reuoce.htm.

The first awards made under the GEO Diversity Program are listed at http://www.geo.nsf.gov/geo/diversity/. Some of these new programs are focused on undergraduates, and this is another potential pool of applicants for graduate programs.


REMINDER!!!

All investigators submitting proposals to the Division of Ocean Sciences that include sea-going field work must also submit an electronic research ship request form and include a copy with the proposal. Electronic ship request forms are available on the UNOLS Home Page web site (http://www.unols.org). In addition, investigators submitting proposals that require use of a UNOLS ship to NSF programs other than Ocean Sciences must follow the same procedure.

Please note that ship time requests must be received by the Feb. 15 target date to be considered for ship time in the following calendar year.
