Simons Foundation invites applications for marine microbial ecology postdoctoral fellowships

The Simons Foundation invites applications for its Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine Microbial Ecology.

Through the program, three-year fellowships with an annual stipend of $65,000 and an annual allowance of up to $25,000 will be awarded to candidates who intend to pursue a career in basic research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology, with an emphasis on understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes, and vice versa. The foundation is interested in applicants with training in different disciplines, including modeling and theory development, and applicants already involved in ocean research. This fellowship is intended to support full-time research, and any exceptions, e.g., teaching positions, require advance approval from the foundation.

The allowance may be spent on health insurance for the fellow and family, other benefits as required by the institution, research supplies, small equipment (including computers), attendance at scientific meetings, and other research-related travel. Up to $5,000 per year may be reallocated from the annual allowance to the annual stipend at the institution’s discretion, in which case the maximum annual stipend funded by the foundation would be $70,000, and the maximum annual allowance would be $20,000. The stipend may not be reallocated to increase the research allowance. Up to $2,000 of the allowance may be used to relocate the fellow and family to the host institution.

To be eligible, applicants should have received their PhD or equivalent degree within three years of the fellowship’s start date. Preference will be for applicants with no more than one year of postdoctoral experience. United States citizens may choose a postdoctoral research sponsor in the U.S. or Canada. Foreign applicants may choose a sponsor in the U.S. Awards may only be issued to nonprofit research universities or research institutions in the U.S. or Canada (on a campus within these countries).
