Opportunity to lead the Cognitive Neuroscience program at NSF

Dear Colleagues,

I’m writing to alert you that NSF has an opportunity to lead the Cognitive Neuroscience program and we are hoping you might know someone interested in the position. The position would be temporary: they would serve as a rotator, or as a Fed Temp employee, for 1-3 years.

The Cognitive Neuroscience Program supports research aimed at understanding the neural basis of human cognition. The Program Director leads the whole of programmatic activity, from organizing the review process and deciding on funding and funding priorities to building connections across the scientific community and across NSF.

This is a full-time position. However, NSF supports continuation of a Program Director’s research activity and allows time for independent research and development, on a limited basis (up to 20% of your time). NSF also allows some limited telework.

Being a Program Director at NSF can be a very rewarding experience. If you or someone you know are interested in this opportunity, please let me know as soon as possible. We’re hoping to bring someone on board by the end of the summer, so the sooner we know if you might be interested, the better. Please feel free to email me or call if you have any questions. They would need to be at least 6 years post-PhD and be familiar with state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods and analyses, in behavioral contexts.
