Stanford Science Fellows - Call for Applications

Aktuelles |

The Stanford Science Fellows program is now accepting applications for its 2023–2026 cohort of postdoctoral fellows. Interested applicants can apply until Friday, October 14, 2022.

The Stanford Science Fellows program seeks applications from outstanding graduating doctoral students and early-career postdocs (no more than three years from degree and no more than two years of prior postdoctoral experience by the start of their term) committed to advancing foundational research, working across disciplines with exceptional scholars, and bringing greater diversity of thought and experience to the global community of natural scientists. To support their research, Stanford Science Fellows have access to faculty and facilities in Stanford’s Schools of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Sustainability as well as at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

Approximately ten new fellows will be chosen. An important selection criterion is a commitment to enhancing demographic and intellectual diversity in Stanford’s scientific community. Stanford Science Fellows are appointed for a term of three years. Fellows must be eligible and available to start their terms between July 1 and September 1, 2023.They will receive an annual stipend of $85,000, benefits (including health insurance), $8,000 per year in supplemental funds to support research and professional development, and up to $2,000 for relocation expenses. The program includes community-building activities to foster professional development and leadership skills, as well as workshops, seminars, and informal discussions with Stanford faculty and visitors.

Applicants are requested to submit their documents until October 14th via Academic Jobs Online. There, you will find further information on the required documents and application process.
