Job Description:

Posted: March 9, 2020 Location: Washington, D.C. Show Map Type: Full Time - Experienced Years of Experience: 11+ Category: Geosciences Preferred Education: Doctorate Summary: ARPA-E hires Program Directors (PD) with visionary ideas to help support the development of innovative energy technologies. PD Responsibilities Program Development Through appropriate technical and market analysis, and engagement with the ARPA?E team and energy R & D communities, the PD develops a concept for an ARPA?E program. He or she must then defend that concept in the face of challenging but constructive criticism from other ARPA?E team members. Once through this crucible, the PD leads the drafting of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and manages all stages of the procurement process, which includes peer review of concept papers and full applications. This culminates in the PD recommending performer awards to agency leaders. Project Management Once a program's projects have been awarded, the PD actively manages that program, including full development of technical milestones and an intellectual property/commercialization strategy for each project through its completion. Management requires extensive, hands-on work with project performers in the field. The PD is responsible for adjusting, re?scoping, extending, or canceling projects during the performance period. The PD's project portfolio includes all projects in his/her program area(s) and may include other ongoing ARPA?E projects as required. Other Duties A PD carries ARPA?E's endorsement as a thought leader both within DOE and to the external R & D community. A PD develops best practices as part of continually improving how ARPA?E does business. A PD also evaluates other PD candidates, leads or serves on ad hoc groups as required for specific tasks, and provides peer review to other PDs' program concepts. Terms of Employment Initial term of hire is three years, with renewal options. ARPA-E will consider hiring individuals from universities and other nonprofit organizations via the Intergovernment Personnel Act (IPA). S. citizenship is required.
