Studying Complex Systems

For Postdoctoral Fellowships and Collaborative Activity Awards, proposals furthering the science of complex systems and/or proposals intending to apply complex system tools and models to problems where such approaches are not yet considered usual or mainstream are appropriate.

JSMF supports research in the brain sciences through its topical program Understanding Human Cognition. The Foundation recommends that researchers in the neurosciences not submit proposals to the Complex Systems RFA. Typically, such proposals are unsuccessful.
