The National Science Foundation (NSF) is seeking reviewers for proposals submitted to the Academic Research Infrastructure — Recover and Reinvestment (ARI-R2) program, a program supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  ARI-R² is designed to support 21st century research and research training infrastructure in academic institutions and non-profit research organizations, such as research museums, research laboratories, and research consortia.

NSF is in need of reviewers in three broad categories: a) expertise in a scientific, engineering or architecture field, b) experience in managing large facilities and centers, or c) expertise in computer networking; it is not expected that individuals will have competence in all categories.  If you are interested in participating in the merit review process of this program and have the time to serve on a panel in October 2009, please go to http://www.nsf.gov/od/oia/programs/ari/ari_reviewer and complete and submit the short form indicating your field of expertise and availability.
