>From Michal Lesser, NSF/Biological Oceanography
IPA Rotator at NSF with background in coral reef/benthic/everything else needed…..
My tenure at NSF ends around June 1, 2014 and I return to the University of New Hampshire.  Right now the Biological Oceanography program has expertise in phytoplankton/microzooplankton and microbial ecology.  My leaving creates a disciplinary void that I have been asked to help fill.  So rather than go into a long speech about how important this job is and how rewarding it is I invite anyone who might be interested in serving for two years at NSF in the role of program officer to PLEASE email me (mpl at unh.edu<mailto:mpl at unh.edu>) and we can have a conversation about the job itself and gauge the interest of individuals.  To start with it should be someone who has some experience reviewing and has served on a panel at NSF, and likely has been funded by NSF as well.  From a community perspective it is very important to have this slot filled with the right expertise, and if a coral reef/benthic ecologist doesn’t take this position someone from another discipline will fill the job.
Look forward to talking with any and all of you.
Cheers, Michael
