ARLINGTON, Va. — The Office of Naval Research (ONR) will host a lecture series featuring Navy researchers and scientists who hold scientific or professional positions (STs). These high-level subject-matter experts will share their research and development initiatives in the physical, biological, medical and engineering sciences or closely related fields. The lecture series kicks off March 7 and continues through November.

These scientific or professional positions, which are above the GS-15 level, exist throughout the federal government and involve performing high-level research and development. They are recognized as lead scientists in their respective fields.
