Simons Foundation Investigator Programs

Number of Submissions Per Institution: 
5
Submissions Per Institution: 
The foundation will accept up to two nominations per university in each of Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, Theoretical Computer Science, and the Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems programs and up to one nomination per university in the Math+X program.
The aim of the Simons Investigators programs is to identify and support the most active and creative researchers during the years when they are developing into and serving as the intellectual leaders of the field and to provide them with resources to undertake new and creative investigations. The nominees are judged on their potential for innovative new contributions to science over the coming years. Investigators in Physics, Astrophysics, Mathematics and Computer Science programs must be tenured at the time of the award. MMLS Investigators must be within eight years of their first faculty appointment at the time of nomination and are typically untenured faculty. The aim of the Math+X Investigators program is to encourage novel collaborations between mathematics and other disciplines by providing research funds to establish programs at the interface between mathematics and another field of science or engineering. A Math+X nominee should be a scientist with the broad interests and scientific stature needed to establish and lead such a program. The foundation will accept up to two nominations per university in each of Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, Theoretical Computer Science, and the Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems programs and up to one nomination per university in the Math+X program. All nominations must be received by the foundation by October 31, 2017.
