My New Job: SETA

After many months of waiting, I am finally beginning my new job, which marks my return to linguistics as a career.

I am now a contracted SETA (Scientific, Engineering and Technical Assistant) for US government Program Managers who fund scientific research and development projects related to linguistics in academia and industry. My principle role will be more-or-less as a consultant, advising PMs about state-of-the-art research and methods in cognitive linguistics and computational linguistics in order to facilitate their funded programs.
