The Simons Collaboration for Origins of Life is inviting applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support independent research on topics related to the origins of life at one or more laboratories or research institutions in any country.

The collaboration seeks to engage the ideas and creativity of researchers around the world by providing an array of opportunities for postdoctoral fellows to interact with colleagues from different disciplines and programs, both online and in person, including webinars, workshops, and annual symposia. As fellows are expected to participate fully in all SCOL events, these opportunities are designed to not only strengthen the collaboration but also provide the most fruitful mechanism for bringing a growing origins-of-life community together. Applications from all origins-related disciplines are encouraged.

Candidates must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent degree within five years of the fellowship’s start date. There are no citizenship or country requirements. 

3 year appointment, stipend $62,000 USD, a $10,000 allowance for health insurance, annual allowance of up to $20,000 may be used for supplies, publication costs, small equipment, and other research-related expenses
