NSF offers opportunities for scientists, engineers, and educators to join NSF as temporary program officers, called rotators. "Rotators make recommendations about which proposals to fund; influence new directions in the fields of science, engineering, and education; support cutting-edge interdisciplinary research; and mentor junior research members. As a rotator, you will be in a prime position to collaborate with others and increase your visibility as you survey the entire breadth of U.S. and international science, engineering, and education in real time. In addition, as a temporary program director, you can retain your ties to [the University of Mississippi] and return to it with new insights and experience for your team.
