Gordon and Betty Moore established the foundation to create positive outcomes for future generations. In pursuit of that vision, we foster path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements and preservation of the special character of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Guided by this vision and the Statement of Founders' Intent, each day we strive to make a significant and positive impact on the world. We tackle large, important issues at a scale where we believe we can make significant and measurable impacts. We know that our ability to take risks and make long-term and relatively large commitments allows us to undertake challenges not accessible to many other organizations.
The Science Program funds research that acquires new knowledge and asks new questions, enables new science through technology, breaks down barriers, and enhances society’s understanding of the inherent value of science.

Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative
The Science Program’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative is a newly launched effort to support the international research community to more deeply understand the evolution, physiology and ecology of aquatic symbioses. We make grants to universities and research organizations to enable scientists to develop concepts and technologies that will illuminate how symbiotic associations originated and function today, and how they contribute to marine and freshwater ecosystems. We support current and emerging leaders through investigator awards, multidisciplinary collaborations, community resources and projects to develop new instruments and methods.
For more information please visit: Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative.
The Program Associate provides support and coordination for the Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative. The primary responsibilities are to ensure that the systems to manage grants and workflows are implemented efficiently through effective coordination of team processes and activities, and to more broadly assist the initiative in achieving its strategic objectives.

The Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative team is the same group that manages the Marine Microbiology Initiative, which will conclude in 2021. The Program Associate will provide parallel support and coordination for this initiative.
