Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellowship





The Omidyar Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is unique among postdoctoral appointments. It offers select early-career scholars the opportunity to join a collaborative research community that nurtures creative, transdisciplinary thought in pursuit of key insights about the complex systems that matter most for science and society.

The Omidyar Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is unique among postdoctoral appointments. The Institute has no formal programs or departments. Research is collaborative and spans the physical, natural, and social sciences.

As thought leaders who shape the future of science, Omidyar Fellows participate in a provocative training program structured to develop leadership skills throughout their three-year residencies and beyond.  The program focuses on sustained mentoring relationships with SFI resident and external faculty, skill development workshops, off-campus research and teaching experiences, and the variety of scholarly leadership and science management opportunities at SFI.
