The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Office of Polar Programs (OPP)
is seeking an Antarctic Integrated System Science (AISS) Program
Director. The position will be based in Arlington, Virginia.

The successful candidate will have experience with interdisciplinary
science, including managing the challenges presented by such projects.
The current AISS portfolio includes projects involving glaciology,
geology, biology, and atmospheric and ocean sciences; and also includes
management of the awards for two Antarctic Long Term Ecological Research
Sites. The incumbent will manage a dynamic proposal-driven research
grants program and coordinate with other programs throughout NSF, other
funding agencies, and international partners to achieve program goals.

Additional information is available at the following links:

research directions to understand the ice-sheet/ocean/atmosphere
system can be found at:

The AISS program director coordinates closely with directors of the
other Antarctic Science Programs (Astrophysics & Geospace Sciences,
Atmosphere & Ocean Sciences, Earth Science, Glaciology, and Organisms &
Ecosystems) to assure that AISS research addresses questions about the
Antarctic as a system that transcend disciplinary boundaries and are
highly integrated and broader in scope than typically addressed by the
other programs.

Application deadline: Wednesday, 1 August 2012.

This position may be filled as a Career appointment, Visiting Scientist
appointment, a Federal Temporary appointment, or an Intergovernmental
Personnel Act assignment.
