2017 Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine Microbial Ecology

Application Deadline: June 15, 2017

The Simons Foundation invites 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, as well as applicants with experience in modeling or theory development.

Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards

RFA Closed

The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for its Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards. The purpose of these awards is to help launch the careers of outstanding investigators who use quantitative approaches to advance our understanding of marine microbial ecology and evolution. Investigators will focus directly on marine microbes or on fundamental problems that are highly relevant to understanding marine microbial ecosystems.

Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life 2015 Investigator Awards

RFA Closed

The Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life is now accepting applications for Simons Investigator awards. The  goal is to identify scientists conducting innovative research who either are or will be making the most important contributions to the origins-of-life field. Scientific productivity, creativity and risk in the design of experiments, and a commitment to collaborative origins research will be important factors in the selection process.

Simons Collaboration on Ocean Processes and Ecology Investigator Awards

RFA Closed

The purpose of the Simons Collaboration on Ocean Processes and Ecology, based at the University of Hawai’i, is to advance our understanding of the biology, ecology, and biogeochemistry of microbial processes that dominate Earth’s largest biome: the global ocean. This collaborative effort will measure, model and conduct experiments at a model ecosystem site located 100 km north of Oahu that is representative of a large portion of the North Pacific Ocean. The Simons Collaboration on Ocean Processes and Ecology  is now accepting applications for Simons Investigators who will work in SCOPE.
