Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine Microbial Ecology

Application Deadline :


The Simons Foundation’s Life Sciences division invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support candidates who intend to pursue a career in 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. We are interested in applicants with training in different disciplines, including modeling and theory development, as well as applicants already involved in ocean research.


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.


The award is for three years, contingent upon satisfactory annual progress reports, and will include an annual stipend of $70,000 and an annual allowance of up to $25,000. This fellowship is intended to support full-time research, and any exceptions (e.g., teaching positions) require advance approval from Simons Foundation staff.
