|The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for its Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards. The deadline for receiptof letters of intent (LOI) is October 15, 2014, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
The purpose of these awards is to launch the careers of outstanding investigators who use quantitative approaches to advance our understanding of marine microbial ecology and evolution. Investigators will focus directly on marine microbes or on fundamental problems that are highly relevant to understanding marine microbial ecosystems. Applicants may currently be working in a related field, but must submit an innovative proposal for research that will advance the understanding of marine microbial ecology or evolution.
Among other eligibility requirements, applicants must have significant training in a quantitative field and have held an independent position (tenure-track or equivalent) for at least three years and no more than eight years.
The Simons Foundation’s mission is to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences.
