James S. McDonnell Foundation: Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards in Studying Complex Systems 2016/2017

The Studying Complex Systems program supports scholarship and research directed toward the development of theoretical and mathematical tools contributing to the science of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems.

Fellowships are designed to provide students in the final stages of completing a Ph.D. degree more leeway in identifying and securing postdoctoral training opportunities in complex systems research.

Funding & Duration

The total Fellowship amount is USD $200,000 (approx AUD $264,600) to be expended in no less than 2 and no more than 3 years.

The cost of the full postdoctoral salary or stipend and fringe benefits must be paid in full from the fellowship.


This fellowship is intended for Ph.D. students with theoretical and/or experimental training in Complex Systems Science that anticipate completing their graduate training in late 2016 or in 2017. The earliest start-date for a fellowship is November 1, 2016.

Important Note: this scheme is not intended for individuals that already have a Ph.D. or students that have already identified a postdoctoral position and a postdoctoral mentor, as there are traditional funding mechanisms available for these students.
