Postdoctoral Fellowships

Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life (SCOL) Postdoctoral Fellows

Fellows carry out independent research on topics related to the origins of life at research institutions in any country, with mentors who are not SCOL investigators. Participation in collaboration meetings provides opportunities for fellows to interact with colleagues in different disciplines. Fellows are chosen through an annual competition.

Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine Microbial Ecology

This program, launched in 2017, provides fellowships to support research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology. The emphasis is on fellows with training in different fields, including theory and modeling, who want to apply their experience to understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes, and vice versa.

Simons Fellows in Life Sciences

In this partnership, the division supports fellows for research on fundamental problems, with a focus on microbial ecology and evolution.
