The Simons Foundation’s Life Sciences division and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative are jointly soliciting proposals for research on the origin of the eukaryotic cell.

This opportunity is open to applications from individuals or collaborative teams and to scientists based in the U.S. and internationally. In addition to seeking researchers who currently work on this topic, we hope to identify scientists and engineers who would bring novel perspectives, methods and technologies to this area.

Opening date: July 9, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. PT
Proposal deadline: September 30, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. PT
