The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MPS) division invites applications for the Simons Fellows in Mathematics program, to make sabbatical research leaves more productive by extending them from a single term to a full academic year.

Rationale

Sabbatical research leaves from classroom teaching and administrative obligations can provide strong intellectual stimulation and lead to increased creativity and productivity in research.

Basis for Awards

Awards will be based on the applicant’s scientific accomplishments in the five-year period preceding the application and on the potential scientific impact of the work to be done during the leave period.

Level and Duration of Funding

A Simons Fellowship in Mathematics provides salary replacement for up to 50 percent (up to a maximum of $100,000) of the Fellow’s current academic-year salary, whether normally paid over 9 or 12 months, and up to $10,000 for expenses related to the leave. The Fellow’s home institution will receive an additional 20 percent overhead on allowable expenses. Please note that the foundation’s indirect cost policy allows up to 20 percent of direct cost expenditures.

The Simons Fellowship will fund up to 50 percent of the 2020–2021 academic year, where, for example, the full leave year period could be January 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020; September 1, 2020, through August 31, 2021; or January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021. Fellowship funding must be contiguous to the university-supported portion of the leave.

Fellowship awards and sabbatical periods may begin no earlier than January 1, 2020, and no later than January 1, 2021. The award and the sabbatical period must finish no later than December 31, 2021.

Allowable Expenses

Salary replacement funds are to be used only to replace or partly replace salary during academic terms in which the recipient would otherwise be teaching or engaging in academic administration or other departmental or university committee work. The funding may not be used for summer salary (if salary is paid over nine months) or to increase the academic-year salary beyond the university rate but may be paid out over the course of the full leave. Please follow the university’s policy on costs associated with sabbaticals not supported by the university. If applicable, fringe benefits are allowed within the salary-replacement-funds category, but the total amount requested cannot exceed the maximum allowed ($100,000).

The additional funding is to be used to support expenses related to the leave in a manner consistent with the approved sabbatical plans. Allowable leave-related expenses include equipment, travel (including travel to the sabbatical location for the Fellow’s family members), housing (for the Fellow and the Fellow’s family), automobile rental, childcare and support for visitors (including meals). Salaries for students or research associates will not be supported, but funds may be used to help transport members of the Fellow’s research group to the sabbatical location (if different from the home institution) and provide housing. Leave-related expenses may be incurred at any time during the award period; they are not restricted to the terms in which salary is provided by the foundation.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligibility is restricted to sabbatical or equivalent leave-eligible faculty who wish to use the fellowship award for the purpose of extending at least a single-term sabbatical research leave to a full academic year. The fellowship program will not support the extension of a full year of sabbatical research leave to an additional term. In order to receive the Simons Fellowship, you must be approved by your institution for a full year of sabbatical research leave, consisting of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters with at least 50 percent of the year fully paid by the home university and no more than 50 percent fully or partly supported by the fellowship. If funds from the foundation are insufficient to cover the salary needs for the period supported by the fellowship, other resources can be used for this purpose. The foundation will consider circumstances where, for example, the university covers 80 percent of a full year of leave and the fellowship covers the remaining 20 percent.

A Simons Fellow in Mathematics must have a teaching or administrative tenured position at the same U.S. or Canadian college or university within the mathematics department at the time of application, throughout the course of the sabbatical research leave and in the term following the leave. This must be the applicant’s primary position. Applied mathematics and statistics disciplines are eligible as long as the applicant resides within the mathematics department. In addition, a Fellow must have an active current research program. Fellows cannot simultaneously hold a Simons Investigator award.

Previous fellowship awardees are allowed to apply for another fellowship as long as they follow their universities’ rules on sabbatical eligibility. Simons Fellows are not allowed to hold a Simons Investigator award during their fellowship.

Unspent Funds

Unspent funds at the end of the grant must be returned to the foundation. No-cost extension requests will typically not be considered.

Number of Awards

The foundation expects to award up to 40 mathematics fellowships each year.

How to Apply

Applicants must apply through proposalCENTRAL (https://proposalcentral.com/). The deadline to apply is September 26, 2019, 11:59:59 p.m. EDT.

Please refer to the How to Apply tab for instructions.

  2. I have a tenure-track position. Am I eligible to apply?plus--large

    No, only those with tenured positions are eligible for the fellowship.

  3. Can I hold a Collaboration Grant for Mathematicians and a Simons Fellowship at the same time?plus--large

    Yes, the foundation allows holding both awards simultaneously.

    It is not our intention to support biological physics with this program. However, if your work is within the theoretical biophysics area, you would be eligible to apply.

  8. If I am not appointed in a physics department, am I eligible for a Simons Fellowship in Theoretical Physics?plus--large

    Applicants will be evaluated as theoretical physicists, in terms of potential contributions to physics, and must fulfill all of the eligibility requirements, but there is no restriction on the home department.

  9. My primary appointment is in a department of computer science, although my research is primarily mathematics. Am I eligible for a Simons Fellowship in Mathematics?plus--large

    No, applicants to the Simons Fellows in Mathematics program must have a tenured, primary position in the mathematics department.

  10. Will the foundation accept applications from computer scientists?plus--large

    It is not our intent to support computer science with this program.

An adjunct faculty member whose primary employer is an academic institution and who is eligible on the basis of his or her research is eligible for the Simons Fellowship.

  17. I am not a U.S. or Canadian citizen; am I eligible to be a Simons Fellow?plus--large

    U.S. or Canadian citizenship is not required, but a grantee’s primary appointment must be at a U.S. or Canadian institution in order to be a Simons Fellow.
