About the series
Have you ever wondered how decisions are made about research funding? Are you thinking about the next step in your career, but not quite sure what to do? Are you interested in making a real impact on science research and funding in geographically diverse regions of the nation? NSF EPSCoR is recruiting new Program Officers (POs) and we’re hosting a recruitment webinar on Monday, November 7th.
The U.S. National Science Foundation's EPSCoR program pursues a mission to enhance the research competitiveness of targeted jurisdictions (state, territory or commonwealth) by strengthening science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) capacity and capability through a diverse portfolio of investments from talent development to local infrastructure. The program’s mission is carried out through five programmatic goals: (1) catalyze the development of research; (2) establish professional development pathways; (3) broaden participation of diverse groups and institutions; (4) effect sustainable engagement in STEM; and (5) impact jurisdictional economic development.
