The Sloan Research Fellowships program seeks to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. Successful candidates generally have a strong record of significant independent research accomplishments that demonstrate creativity and the potential to become future leaders in the scientific community.
Fellowships are awarded in the following categories:
- Computational & Evolutionary Molecular Biology
- Computer Science
- Ocean Sciences
Sloan Research Fellowships are two-year fellowships awarded annually to 126 early career researchers with the potential to make substantial contributions in their field. Each fellow is awarded $70,000.
- Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in chemistry, computational or evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience, ocean sciences, physics, or a related field
- Candidate must have been awarded a PhD on or after September 1, 2012.
- Nominees must be in tenure track positions, with an annual teaching requirement.
- Researchers may be housed in a department, other than the category area in which they are nominated. For example, a mathematician working on how to model changes in ocean temperature or phytoplankton would qualify under Ocean Sciences.
No more than three candidates may be nominated from any one department.
