The Stanford Science Fellows program is now accepting applications for its 2023–2026 cohort of postdoctoral fellows. Promising candidates must apply through Academic Jobs Online by Friday, October 14, 2022.
The Stanford Science Fellows program seeks applications from outstanding graduating doctoral students and early-career postdocs 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. 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.
