Employment Opportunity: Chemist (Program Director)

October 4, 2021

The Division of Chemistry (CHE) announces a nationwide search for senior-level researchers to serve as rotating Program Directors. Rotators make recommendations about which proposals to fund; influence new directions in the fields of science, engineering, and education; support cutting-edge interdisciplinary research; and mentor junior research members. Rotating Program Directors are in a prime position to collaborate with others and increase their own visibility as they survey the entire breadth of U.S. and international science, engineering, and education in real time. In addition, as a temporary Program Director, they can retain their ties to their current institution and return to their home institution with new insights and experience from NSF.

For FY22/23: We are seeking applicants for Program Director positions in all CHE Programs, especially individuals with broad expertise in synthesis and catalysis, sustainable chemistry and materials, clean energy and climate-related chemistry, biotechnology and chemical biology, AI-driven chemical research, and quantum information science.
