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 designed to provide students with opportunities to pursue postdoctoral training that might not be otherwise readily available. The Fellowships are intended to allow students to seek postdoctoral research opportunities aligned with the student’s interest and desire to obtain additional skills and experience that will further their pursuit of careers in complex systems science.
- The cost of the full postdoctoral salary or stipend and fringe benefits must be paid in full from the fellowship.
- Institutions cannot request that other funding sources be used to cover the Fellow’s salary or stipend; the primary purpose of this fellowship is the continued education and training of the postdoctoral fellow. The fellowship is not intended to provide general support to a laboratory or department.
- If the institutional postdoctoral salary scales are set such that there are funds in excess of what is needed for stipend and benefits, the excess funds can be used by the institution to support the Fellow’s research.
Total amount of the JSMF Fellowship is $200,000 USD to be expended in no less than 2 and no more than 3 years.
