Breakthroughs in computational resources and digital datasets are revolutionizing scientific research, with the past three decades having seen advances of about nine orders of magnitude in computing capability, along with deep advances in computational algorithms. These developments are enabling computational and multiscale simulations of unprecedented breadth and accuracy, and simultaneous progress in digital data collection technology is resulting in enormous datasets being generated routinely by scientific experiments and observations of natural phenomena. Thus a a scientific revolution is unfolding in the scope, use, and production of data. Read the rest of this entry »
The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS), within the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Science Foundation (NSF), announces a nationwide search for mathematical sciences professionals to fill Program Director positions:
NSF Program Directors bear the primary responsibility for carrying out the Agency’s overall mission. To discharge this responsibility requires not only knowledge in the appropriate disciplines, but also a commitment to high standards, a considerable breadth of interest and receptivity to new ideas, a strong sense of fairness, good judgment, and a high degree of personal integrity.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent training in a field of the mathematical sciences, a broad knowledge of one of the relevant disciplinary areas of the Division of Mathematical Sciences, a knowledge of the general scientific community, skill in written communication and preparation of technical reports, an ability to communicate orally, and several years of successful independent research normally expected of the academic rank of associate professor or higher. Some administrative experience and experience working in teams are desirable. Appointees are expected to function effectively both within specific programs and as a member of crosscutting and interactive teams. Skills in multidisciplinary research are highly desirable.
