Just got this by email:

The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for its Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards. The deadline for receipt of letters of intent (LOI) is November 7, 2016, 5:00 PM Eastern Time.

The purpose of these awards is to help launch the careers of outstanding investigators who use quantitative approaches to advance our understanding of marine microbial ecology and evolution. Investigators with backgrounds in different fields or with an interest in modeling or theory are encouraged to apply.

Among other eligibility requirements, applicants must have held a tenure-track or tenured position (or equivalent) in a U.S. or Canadian institution for at least one year and no more than eight years.


The Simons Foundation’s mission is to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
