Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Canada IHEs to administer postdoctoral fellowships to recent PhD recipients for marine biology research. Fellows with cross-disciplinary training who can develop new ideas and methodologies are highly encouraged, but such training is not a requirement.

The Simons Foundation invites 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.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The award will include an annual stipend of $65,000 and an annual allowance of up to $25,000. 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 $2,000 of the allowance may be used for relocation of the fellow and family to the host institution. Relocation costs must be in accordance with the policies of the host institution.

Term of Contract:

The award is for three years, contingent upon satisfactory annual progress reports.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants should have received their Ph.D. 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. U.S. citizens may choose a postdoctoral research sponsor in either the U.S. or Canada. Foreign applicants may choose a sponsor in the U.S. Awards can only be issued to nonprofit research universities or research institutions in the U.S. or Canada (in a campus within these countries).

501(c)(3) determination or equivalency letter (Canadian institutions only) — The Simons Foundation requires a determination letter from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stating exemption under 501(c)(3) and, furthermore, either a 509(a)(1), (2) or (3) classification. Applicants do not need to have this letter at the time of application. If an international institution is selected for funding and does not have the aforementioned documentation, the Simons Foundation will require the institution to complete an equivalency determination with NGOsource.

Payment cannot be made directly to fellows. No indirect or overhead costs may be charged.
