James S. McDonnell Foundation Seeks Applications for 2016 Complex Systems Scholar Award

The James S. McDonnell Foundation is accepting applications for its 2016 Complex Systems Scholar Award.

The JSMF Scholar Awards program supports high-quality research and scholarship leading to the generation of new knowledge and its responsible application, with an emphasis on furthering the science of complex systems through the continued development of the theory and tools used in the study of complex research questions (as opposed to particular fields of research per se). Priority will be given to projects that attempt to apply complex systems approaches to coherently articulated questions.

Largely unrestricted grants of up to $450,000 over four to six years will be awarded to allow investigators from anywhere in the world to pursue and develop new directions to their research programs.

To be eligible, principal investigators must have completed all doctoral, postdoctoral, or fellowship training and hold an independent research position. James S. McDonnell Scholar Awards are not intended to serve as a career development award; rather, the intent is to allow creative researchers to pursue important research.

It is anticipated that successful Scholar-Award applications will have principal investigators who are between five and fifteen years post Ph.D. In addition, applicants must be sponsored by a qualifying institution as defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Tax Code. Institutions outside the United States should read carefully the additional information on tax requirements.

See the JSMF website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
