The Simons Foundation is invitingly applications for its Simons Fellows in Mathematics program.
Sabbatical research leaves from classroom teaching and administrative obligations can provide strong intellectual stimulation and lead to increased creativity and productivity in research. The foundation’s Fellows program seeks to make sabbatical research leaves more productive by extending them from a single term to a full academic year.
Through the program, Fellows receive salary replacement for up to 50 percent (up to a maximum of $100,000) of the fellow’s current academic-year salary, whether normally paid over nine or twelve months, and up to and additional $10,000 for expenses related to the leave. The fellow’s home institution will receive an additional 20 percent overhead on allowable expenses. Forty mathematics fellowships are awarded each year.
To be eligible, applicants must have a teaching or administrative tenured position within the mathematics department at a U.S. or Canadian college or university. Applicants also must be approved for a full year of sabbatical research leave from their home institution, consisting of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters with at least 50 percent of the year fully paid by the home university and no more than 50 percent fully or partly supported by the fellowship.
