Readers, I have been contacted by a rotating NSF Program Officer from the IOS division of Bio. She is interested in writing a guest post about the job she has. Rotators are visiting POs, who spend 1-3 years at NSF while maintaing their labs at their home institution. This category of PO is, as far as I know, unique to NSF and ensures that active scientists get involved in the funding process. As you might imagine, I am always intrigued by what draws an individual to become a rotating PO, and so I am excited by this opportunity.
