Stanford Science Fellow
The Stanford Science Fellows program invites applications from outstanding graduating doctoral students and early career postdoctoral scholars with a clear intellectual drive to advance foundational research in the natural sciences and a strong commitment to engage collaboratively with a diverse community of scholars. Stanford Science Fellows are an interdisciplinary community of exceptional postdoctoral scholars from around the globe whose work is driven by a sense of wonder about the natural world.
Stanford’s top-ranked science and engineering departments, as well as its many interdisciplinary laboratories and research institutes, are situated in close proximity to each other on campus, providing a wide range of opportunities for collaboration. Stanford Science Fellows will have access to faculty and facilities within Stanford’s Schools of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Earth as well as at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
Selection: Approximately eight to ten new fellows will be chosen by faculty from departments and schools across the natural sciences at Stanford. An important selection criterion is the commitment to enhancement of demographic and intellectual diversity in the scientific community at Stanford.
Terms: Stanford Science Fellow appointments will be for three-year terms. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $83,000 per year, benefits, $8,000 per year in supplemental funds to support research and professional development, and a $2,000 relocation allowance. The program also includes community-building activities to foster professional development and leadership skills, as well as workshops, seminars, and informal discussions with Stanford faculty and visitors.
