Moore–Simons Project on the Origin of the Eukaryotic Cell
This funding opportunity aims to advance methods and concepts that will deepen understanding of eukaryogenesis. The Moore–Simons Project on the Origin of the Eukaryotic Cell is a joint effort of the Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative and the Simons Foundation Life Sciences Division to seek proposals and support research on the origin of the eukaryotic cell. The proposal deadline is September 30, 2019 at 23:59 PDT. The solicitation is international and open to applications from individuals or collaborative teams.
In addition to seeking researchers who currently work in this area, we hope to identify scientists and engineers who have not previously worked on this topic and who would bring novel perspectives, methods and technologies to this exciting and important area of science.
We recognize the value of diversity and encourage individuals from all identities and backgrounds to apply. We welcome applications from scientists based in the United States and internationally. The initiative expects successful candidates will represent a variety of scientific backgrounds, perspectives, and disciplines to enhance the diversity of tools, ideas and approaches used to address outstanding questions in aquatic symbiosis.
Please distribute this information and the application portal to your colleagues. If you would like to receive future announcements from the Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative, please fill out this form.
