Science and Academic Affairs


Science and Academic Affairs (SAA) coordinates scientific and academic activities across all of the NRAO.

The Division provides services in two main areas:

I. SCIENCE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

This area focuses on activities which provide services to the astronomical community outside the NRAO, with the goal of fostering a strong U.S. radio astronomy community.

SAA also manages the peer review process for the allocation of telescope time for all NRAO telescopes.

II. SUPPORT OF SCIENCE RESEARCH AT NRAO

In order to provide science planning and functional support for NRAO facilities it is necessary to have a vibrant, world-class research staff.

The hiring of NRAO scientific staff, their assignment to functional roles within the Observatory, and the evaluation and career tracking processes are all coordinated by SAA.



Specific SAA programs for Science Community Development and Support of Science Research at NRAO are discussed via the links at the left.
