Early-Stage

*Nominations are confidential and should not be shared with the nominee.

KU has been invited by The Simons Foundation to make up to two nominations per program for the Simons Investigators programs in Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, Computer Science, and Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems Investigators.

Please note that nominations for the Investigators in Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics and Computer Science programs must be treated confidentially and should not be shared with the nominee. Nominations are typically made by department chairs who serve as the nominal PI of the proposal.

The aim of the Simons Investigators in Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, and Computer Science programs is to provide a stable base of support for outstanding scientists, enabling them to undertake long-term investigations of the fundamental theoretical questions in their field. The intent is to support these scientists in their most productive years, when they are establishing creative new research directions, providing leadership in the field and effectively mentoring junior scientists.

The aim of the Simons Investigators in MMLS program is to support the most active and creative junior researchers during the years when they are developing into and serving as the intellectual leaders of the field. The intent is to identify exceptional scientists making major contributions to their field and to provide them with resources to undertake new and creative investigations. MMLS Investigators must be within eight years of their first faculty appointment at the time of nomination and are typically holding an assistant professorship or equivalent position.

For information on the typical profile of successful applicants, a list of current awardees may be found at:
