I recently took over management of the Physical Sciences Division at
ONR. There are currently 2 permanent government positions being advertised
in Science and C&E News and I anticipate future job announcement for 3
other positions will appear in Physics Today and Science later this
summer. I request your help in encouraging qualified individuals to apply
for these positions.
If you know of motivated, creative individuals, with a strong science base
and who are interested in managing science and technology, please pass this
information along to them. We are looking for people with strong
communication skills and an ability to work across diverse scientific and
user communities. The current openings are for a Solid State and Materials
Chemistry program manager and an Organic, Polymer and Macromolecular
program manager. Both chemists and engineers may apply. US citizenship is

ONR Program Officers typically have experience in universities and/or
government laboratories and/or industry. They are given significant
autonomy and responsibility in setting short and long-term program
directions, in selecting funding opportunities, in managing programs, and
in hands-on working with the various research communities. ONR Program
Officer usually spend 15-30% of their time in travel, visiting universities
and laboratories and industries, attending conferences, participating in
meetings, etc. Overseas travel is not unusual.
Interested individuals should follow guidance in the announcements on our
WEB page or may contact me directly for additional information. These
openings will close on the 23rd of August 2002.
Thank you for your time.
