Postdoctoral fellowship awards – understanding dynamic and multi-scale systems (James S McDonnell Foundation), US
The Understanding Dynamic and Multi-scale Systems program supports scholarship and research directed toward the discovery and refinement of theoretical and mathematical tools contributing to the continued development of the study of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems. The program's emphasis is on the development and application of the theory and tools used in the study of complex research questions and not on particular fields of research per se. The JSMF Fellowship is a unique opportunity for students with an interest in and an aptitude for complexity science who are in the final stages of completing their Ph.D. and looking to make a significant change in direction for their first postdoctoral fellowship (field of study, model organism, theory vs experimental, etc.) that will either be difficult or impossible without an external source of funding. Students should anticipate activating the Fellowship between June 2020 and February 28, 2021.
Closing date: Applications will be accepted beginning March 11, 2019, up until the deadline of June 13, 2019, 15:59 Central Time (20:59 UTC)
