OPP reserves several Program Director positions to be filled by visiting scientists, Intergovernmental Personnel Assignments (IPAs), or Federal temporary assignments. These come available periodically as specific rotator appointments come to an end.
Formal consideration of interested applicants will begin April 16, 2018 and will continue until selections are made.
