Become a part of our mission to maintain and strengthen the vitality of the US science and engineering enterprise. For over 50 years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has remained the premier Federal agency supporting basic research at the frontiers of discovery across all fields, as well as science and engineering education at all levels.
The National Science Foundation is seeking a candidate for a Program Director position in the Geography and Spatial Sciences Program within the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Directorate for Social and Behavioral Sciences, Arlington, VA.
The Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences supports research to develop and advance scientific knowledge on human cognition, language, social behavior and culture as well as the interactions between human and natural systems. BCS programs consider proposals that fall squarely within disciplines, but they also encourage and support interdisciplinary projects. These are evaluated either through joint review among programs in BCS, joint review with programs in other Divisions, or by NSF-wide multi-disciplinary panels. All programs in BCS consider proposals for research projects, conferences, and workshops. More information about BCS can be found here.
BCS participates in special initiatives and competitions on a number of topics including human-natural system interactions, children's research, cognitive neuroscience, human origins, and information technology. There is also infrastructure support to improve data resources, data archives, collaboratories, and centers.
The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program supports basic research on a variety of geographic topics associated with human, physical, and biotic systems on the Earth's surface. Investigations into the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity within particular places and spaces and the extension to regional and global spheres are especially encouraged. Projects on a variety of domestic and international topics qualify for support if they show promise of contributing to scholarship by enhancing geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
