Job Opportunity: Astronomer (Program Director) - Open until filled

March 21, 2019

The Division of Astronomical Sciences (AST) of the Directorate for Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a search for Program Director positions under the provisions of the Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA). IPA Program Directors typically work within our Individual Investigator Grants programs. We are therefore particularly interested in attracting the services of community members with experience in the federal grant process (preparing proposals, reviewing proposals, and/or administering grants).
