Become a part of our mission to maintain and strengthen the vitality of the US science and engineering enterprise. For over 60 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 NSF is seeking candidate(s) for Program Director within the Linguistics Program in the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE), Arlington, VA.
The Linguistics Program supports basic scientific research that focuses on human language as an object of investigation. The program supports research on the syntactic, semantic, morphological, phonetic and phonological properties of individual languages and of language in general; the psychological processes involved in the production, perception, and comprehension of language; the development of linguistic capacities in children; the acoustics of speech and the physiological and psychological processes involved in the production and perception of speech; the neurobiological bases of language in the brain; and social and cultural factors underlying language variation and change.
The BCS Division supports research to develop and advance scientific knowledge on human cognition, language, social behavior and culture as well as research on the interactions between human societies and the physical environment. 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. Some programs also consider proposals for doctoral dissertation improvement grants, the acquisition of specialized research and computing equipment, group international travel, and large-scale data collection.
