Four researchers supported by the Simons Foundation are among 228 newly elected members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of nation’s most prestigious honorary societies.
The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology. The foundation is particularly interested in applicants with training in different fields who want to apply their experience to understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes and vice versa, including applicants with experience in modeling or theory development.
The three-year awards are intended to help launch the careers of outstanding investigators in this area.
How do electrons flow during photosynthesis? Why do materials superconduct? How do you design a better battery? A new Flatiron Institute center will develop the tools to tackle these and other questions in solid-state physics, chemistry and materials science.
Despite very different wiring patterns, two brain regions involved in learned and innate olfactory behavior encode information in similar ways.
