This Fellowship is conceived to provide students with a chance to look for potential postdoctoral research opportunities on the basis of their interest and aspiration to obtain additional skills and experience that will further their quest of careers in complex systems science.

JSMF Award Details:

  • Total amount is $200,000 USD for min. two years and not more than three years.
  • Cost of the full postdoc salary or stipend and unconventional benefits must be paid in full from the fellowship.
  • JSMF funds are not to be used as primary source of laboratory support.
  • Note: JSMF’s are not granted until the student applies to and is accepted as a postdoctoral fellow at a recognized institution and the institution submits an acceptable application to JSMF.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The fellowship is for PhD students with theoretical or experimental training in Complex Systems Science that expect their graduate training to be completed by late 2016 or in 2017.
  • Earliest date of start for a fellowship is November 1, 2016.
