The National Science Foundation is seeking applicants for the position of Division Director for Earth Sciences (EAR) in the Geosciences Directorate. We are using every possible avenue to ensure this vacancy announcement is widely advertised and attracts a very diverse pool of highly qualified candidates. We encourage you to consider this potential opportunity to serve as the leader of the EAR Division at NSF, and for application details refer you to:

If this opportunity does not fit your current professional or personal situation, but you have recommendations of colleagues whom you believe would be strong candidates, please encourage them to apply. We also encourage you to pass along your recommendations to the Search Committee (listed below), and we will contact potential candidates directly.

Members of the Search Committee are also available to answer questions you may have.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide us in ensuring NSF selects the most highly skilled and visionary leaders.
