Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation - Postdoctoral Fellowship in Chemical Sciences or Chemical Instrumentation Award Program 
: September 4, 2020
: Up to $180,000 

The Beckman Foundation is offering support to advanced postdoctoral researchers working in the core areas of fundamental chemistry (i.e. chemical physics, chemical engineering, and chemistry of materials research) or working on the development and build of chemical instrumentation. Applicants must pursue training in an area of the chemical sciences that would likely not be eligible for funding by traditional chemical biology mechanisms (i.e. NIH-K award).

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - Research to Advance Models of Care for Medicaid-Eligible Populations 
: September 2, 2020
Amount: Up to $300,000

The goal of the program is to conduct original research and evaluate the extent to which health system models of care are advancing health equity for the Medicaid-eligible populations they serve. Projects may be generated from health systems—defined as facility-based provider organizations, or other provider organizations which primarily serve a high percentage of Medicaid-eligible individuals. Researchers, as well as practitioners and public and private partners working with researchers, are eligible to submit proposals through their organizations.

2021 Sloan Research Fellowships 
Deadline: September 15, 2020

Amount: $75,000 over two years

The Sloan Research Fellowship Program recognizes and rewards outstanding early-career faculty who have the potential to revolutionize their fields of study. Successful candidates for a Fellowship generally have a strong record of significant independent research accomplishments that demonstrate creativity and the potential to become future leaders in the scientific community. Nominated candidates are normally several years past the completion of their Ph.D. in order to accumulate a competitive record of independent, significant research. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in chemistry, computer science, Earth system science, economics, mathematics, molecular biology, neuroscience, physics, or a related field.

Simons Foundation — Fellows in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics  
Deadline: September 24, 2020
Amount: Up to $100,000

The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences (MPS) division invites applications for the Simons Fellows in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics programs, to make sabbatical research leaves more productive by extending them from a single term to a full academic year. 

A Simons Fellowship provides 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 9 or 12 months, and up to $10,000 for expenses related to the leave.
