National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership Looking For Director

The Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is looking to hire a director for their Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program (MEP).

MEP is a public-private partnership with centers in all 50 states and Puerto Rico dedicated to serving small and medium-sized manufacturers. Last year, MEP centers interacted with 27,574 manufacturers, leading to $13.0 billion in sales, $2.7 billion in cost savings, $4.9 billion in new client investments, and helped create or retain 105,748 jobs.

For this new position, MEP is looking for someone to plan, organize, direct, and control the activities of the program at the national level. People who apply will have a background at similar organizations where they led on designing its programs, policies, and procedures, and ensured that they were carried out. They will plan the operations of the program to focus on modernizing America’s manufacturing base through the transfer of modern manufacturing technology and techniques to small and medium-sized companies.

This is a Senior Executive Service position that will work out of MEP’s offices in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Applications will be accepted until April 22.
