very new here but I didn’t see this question already posed so I figured I’d ask.
I’m a fixed-term lecturer (2016-17 academic year) on the job market. I’m hoping to apply for an NSF grant this winter to fund new research. Very hypothetically, if I am awarded the grant, how portable are NSF grants between institutions and internationally? Or if I got both the grant and a job (particularly outside the US), would the protocol be to defer the start of the appointment? Are there obstacles I should know about that aren’t listed on the NSF FAQ page?
Many thanks for any help!
