Simons Postdoctoral Fellows in Marine Microbial Ecology Request for Applications

The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support 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 particularly interested in applicants with training in different fields, as well as applicants with experience in modeling or theory development. While these cross-disciplinary applicants will receive particular attention, applicants already involved in ocean research are also encouraged to apply. The foundation anticipates awarding five fellowships in 2020.

Applicants should have received their PhD or equivalent degree within three years of the fellowship’s start date and may be citizens of any country. Awards can be issued only to nonprofit research universities or research institutions in the US.

The submission deadline is May 15, 2020, 5 pm EDT.
