Simons Society of Fellows

Founded in 2014, the Simons Society of Fellows is a community of scholars that encourages intellectual interactions across disciplines and across research centers in the New York City area.

Senior Fellows of the Simons Society of Fellows are distinguished scientists based in New York City.

Junior Fellows are outstanding young scientists who receive support from the foundation for three years to conduct independent research at an institution of higher learning in New York City, with no teaching obligations.

The Simons Foundation is pleased to announce the Junior Fellows appointed in 2016.


The nomination deadline for Junior Fellows to start in 2017 is September 15, 2016. Please contact societyoffellows(replace this with the @ sign) for any questions.
