Sent at the request of Karen D. King at the National Science Foundation.
Three important messages to our STEM education research community:

1. DRL is currently seeking individuals with STEM education
research expertise for temporary positions as program officers.
Specifically, we are seeking one to two individuals with expertise in
math education research and one to two individuals with expertise in
research on evaluation and/or evaluation methodologies. We have
positions available for individuals interested in starting a rotation
at the National Science Foundation in the late summer early fall of
2014 as an Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA). IPA positions are
for one year and are renewable for up to three years. Please
consider this opportunity for yourself and share with your colleagues
and any of your past students and postdocs who may be ready for a
rotation to NSF. For more information in the opportunity and
instructions for submitting a CV and cover letter please review the
DRL recruitment Dear Colleague Letter. Questions can be sent to

2. Please encourage your undergraduate and new graduate students to
apply to the NSF's Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) which
makes awards to individuals pursuing graduate degrees in STEM -
including STEM education research. Potential graduate students and
new graduate students are eligible to apply for a GRFP in STEM
education research. Fellowship applications are typically due in
November of each year.

3. If you are an early career researcher, please consider applying
for the NSF CAREER program to support your STEM education research
and the integration of your research into your teaching. EHR CAREER
proposals are due July 21, 2014. Please contact the EHR CAREER
program officer with questions about CAREER.
