The Simons Foundation’s Mathematics and Physical Sciences division invites nominations for Simons Investigators in Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics and Theoretical Computer Science

Rationale: The Simons Investigators in Mathematics, (Theoretical) Physics, (Theoretical) Astrophysics and Theoretical Computer Science program aims to provide a stable base of support for outstanding scientists, enabling them to undertake longterm investigations of fundamental questions in their fields. The intent of the program is to support these scientists in their most productive years, when they are establishing new research directions, providing leadership in the field and effectively mentoring junior scientists.

The foundation will accept up to two nominations per university in each of Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, Theoretical Computer Science.

The foundation asks each university to submit nominations, confidentially, for up to two nominees for each of the three fields. Steve Murray in Foundation Relations (stephen.murray@duke.edu) is coordinating the nomination process with Departmental Chairs.

Sponsor's Nomination Deadline: **October 31, 2019**
