Program Director Positions at the National Science Foundation

January 10, 2023

Cognitive Neuroscience Program

Closing date: February 6, 2023

The National Science Foundation is hiring one permanent Program Director and one rotator (2-3 years) for the Cognitive Neuroscience Program.

The CogNeuro program supports research aimed at increasing understanding of the neural mechanisms of human cognition, including attention, learning, memory, decision making, language, social cognition and emotions.

 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 for more information about NSF rotator positions.

Permanent Program Directors work for the National Science Foundation but still get time to pursue their own research and education.
