Description:

The U.S. National Science Foundation’s Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) is hiring several rotator program officers, for the Linguistics Program, the Perception, Action, and Cognition (PAC) Program, Developmental Sciences, and Social Psychology. In fact, there are two language scientist openings, one for the Linguistics Program and one, a Language Development focus, for the Developmental Sciences program.

The official job ad and application information is available via the application link below.

Rotator positions are great opportunities for faculty and other (typically more senior) scientists to play an important role at NSF and for their disciplines. There are different mechanisms with somewhat different details, but in sum rotators typically take a leave from their regular faculty positions for 1-3 years to take on a scientific leadership role for a program or programs at NSF. See https://beta.nsf.gov/careers/rotator-programs for more information about NSF rotator positions. (Please note that generally candidates need to be U.S. citizens, but see the official job ad for full details about eligibility.)

Applications for all of these BCS openings are currently being accepted until January 10th. Interested applicants can reach out to Tyler Kendall (tkendallnsf.gov) in Linguistics, Peter Vishton (pvishtonnsf.gov) in DS, Betty Tuller (btullernsf.gov) in PAC, and/or Steve Breckler (sbrecklensf.gov) in Social Psychology with questions. Anja Lindsley (alindslensf.gov) is the HR point of contact for the search and can be contacted with administrative questions; please reach out to one of the program officers listed above with substantive questions about the openings.

See the application link below for full details and to apply.
