Jobs: General Ling, Language Documentation: Program Director, NSF

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Department: Division of Behavioral & Cognitive Sciences
Web Address: http://nsf.gov
Job Rank: Program Director

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Language Documentation


The National Science Foundation is seeking candidates for a Program
Director position in the Linguistics Program within the Division of
Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Directorate for Social and
Behavioral Sciences, Arlington, VA. The Linguistics Program seeks
highly innovative and interdisciplinary proposals aimed at supporting
scientific research of all types that focus on human language as an object
of investigation. The program supports research on the syntactic,
semantic, phonetic, and phonological properties of individual languages and
of language in general; the psychological processes involved in the use of
language; the development of linguistic capacities in children; social and
cultural factors in language use, variation, and change; the acoustics of
speech and the physiological and psychological processes involved in the
production and perception of speech; and the biological bases of language
in the brain.

Ideally we are also seeking expertise for the new program in Documenting
Endangered Languages. This program supports work on furthering our
descriptions and understanding of languages that will likely cease to be
spoken within a generation or two. The Program Director will need a broad
understanding of linguistic theory, linguistic fieldwork, language rights
issues, and the quickly evolving range of technological approaches to
language documentation.
