报告摘要:The U.S. National Science Foundation provides opportunities for non-Federal scientists, mainly academics, to serve as Program Officers for a period of up to 3 years. This injects new ideas and insights into the process from active researchers and provides insight into the workings of NSF to those academics chosen to participate.  From 2015 through 2017 I served in the Oceanography Division as a Program Officer for the Chemical Oceanography program. Over those years I participated fully in all aspects of the Foundation’s mission to fund exceptional basic research in the Ocean Sciences; in core funding and special initiatives as well as planning joint operations with other national funding agencies (e.g., NASA). This presentation will relate insights I gained on Foundation operations, the details of proposal review, and elements for good grantsmanship.
