Two positions open are open at NOAA/AOML.  This was posted previously, 
but I believe the deadline has been extended.


The Ocean Chemistry Division of NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and 
Meteorological Laboratory is seeking two science positions; 1) Division 
Director (ZP-IV / ZP-V, GS13-15), and 2) Director of the Florida Area 
Coastal Environment (FACE) program (ZP-IV, GS-13).   Both positions 
require significant research publications in the refereed literature, a 
history of success in obtaining funding and conducting research 
projects, the ability to organize and to promote research projects, and 
international recognition as a leading scientist in the fields of 
oceanography or climate research.  The Director position requires 
capabilities in the management of the science and personnel involved in 
various research activities within the Ocean Chemistry Division while 
maintaining a strong research effort in an area which complements 
current Division activities.  The FACE director must assume direction 
for a multidiscipline project to study physical, chemical, and 
microbiological aspects of coastal southeastern Florida, with emphasis 
on anthropogenic impact and ecosystem viability. 

NOAA/AOML is part of the US Department of Commerce and is located in 
Miami, Florida. AOML's mission is to conduct basic and applied research 
in oceanography, tropical meteorology, and atmospheric and oceanic 
chemistry.  This research seeks to understand the physical 
characteristics and processes of the ocean and the atmosphere, both 
separately and as a coupled system.  The research emphasis of OCD is to 
study the chemistry and microbiology of coastal and deep-water marine 
systems including nutrients, corals carbon chemistry, and coastal
