Application Opportunity for Complex Systems Scholar - James S. McDonnell Foundation
The James S. McDonnell Foundation has announced new application guidelines for its 21st Century Science Initiative Scholar Awards in Studying Complex System. The program aims to further the science of complex systems through the continued development of the theory and tools used in the study of complex research questions (not on particular fields of research per se). Preference will be given to projects attempting to apply complex systems approaches to coherently articulated questions. Largely unrestricted, one-time grants of up to $450,000 over a sufficient time period (four to six years) will be awarded to allow investigators to pursue and develop new directions for their research programs. JSMF funds internationally. Applications must be sponsored and monies distributed by the investigator?s institution, which must be considered tax-exempt as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. To be eligible, principal investigators must have completed all doctoral, postdoctoral, or fellowship training and hold an independent research position. Priority will be given to PIs who are between five and fifteen years post-Ph.D. Applications can be uploaded beginning February 18, 2016. For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the JSMF website. March 18, 2016
