The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine is actively seeking an Executive Director for the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (DBASSE) (www.nationalacademies.org/DBASSE).
As you may know, the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education – one of seven program units of the Academies – works to advance the frontiers of the behavioral and social sciences and their applications to public policy. DBASSE provides independent, evidence-based advice to decision-makers on key questions of national importance, and gathers experts from many disciplines who volunteer their services on study committees to provide this objective advice to federal agencies, Congress, foundations, communities of science, and the public.
The Executive Director is responsible for fulfilling the vision, defining the strategic direction, and leading the overall management of DBASSE. Specific responsibilities include program development and funding, fiscal management, including a roughly $16-18 million revenue budget, board relations, human resources management for a staff of approximately 85, and public relations. The externally facing activities of the Executive Director include representing the social and behavioral sciences to the federal government and to the public, and articulating the importance of social and behavioral sciences and their role in addressing many national and international challenges faced by the country and other nations.
