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 candidates for multiple Program Director positions within Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE), Arlington, VA. 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.
BCS is seeking Program Directors for the Biological Anthropology Program, Cognitive Neuroscience Program, Geography and Spatial Sciences Program, and Social Psychology Program. For more information on these programs, please visit the BCS Home Page at http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=bcs .
