NOAA’s Ocean Observing and Monitoring Division (newly promoted as the Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing Program - GOMO) is seeking a Physical Scientist to serve as the Arctic Research Program Director, providing leadership, management oversight, direction, and overall day-to-day management for NOAA's Arctic Research Program (ARP). ARP provides support for carrying out a research program to develop, maintain and extend Arctic observing systems targeting the ocean, marine, and sea-ice environments. The program also sponsors research to utilize these and other observations to document and model/predict the changing state of the Arctic Ocean and sea-ice, and to characterize and model the physical, biogeochemical, and biological responses to these changes. ARP works collaboratively with other NOAA organizations and many international partners towards these goals.
The Arctic Research Program Director develops the strategic vision and other planning and budget documents and presentations to guide the program in consultation with the GOMO Director; proposes, defends and manages the program budget; and monitors the performance of the ARP. She/he conducts long-range planning and sets goals and priorities; guides staff, and ensures effective, timely and economical accomplishment of program objectives. She/he contributes leadership for Arctic research within OAR and represents OAR and NOAA at scientific, intra- and inter agency, and international meetings.
