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.

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