The Stanford-SLAC Quantum Initiative, Q-FARM, invites applications for the 2022 Bloch Fellowships in Quantum Science and Engineering. Named after the pioneering Stanford scientist Felix Bloch in honor of his wide-ranging quantum mechanical discoveries and inventions, these fellowships are intended for the next generation of researchers blazing a similarly innovative trail.

Candidates are encouraged to describe in their research proposal opportunities for collaboration with one or multiple groups at Stanford. They may wish to contact Q-FARM faculty members ( to discuss possible research areas prior to applying. The initial appointment includes 3 years of support with an annual salary of approximately $80,000 and benefits. 

Applications and supporting credentials must be submitted through Academic Jobs Online. Candidates should upload their curriculum vitae, publication list, two-page research statement, and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. For queries, please contact Lancy Nazaroff ( Candidates whose applications and supporting materials, including letters, are uploaded on or before November 5, 2021 will be guaranteed full consideration. 

Appointments are expected to begin on or around Autumn 2022. It is expected that at least four fellowships will be awarded. 

Eligibility: For consideration, candidates must have completed a PhD degree prior to their tentative appointment date. The fellowship is open to US citizens or international candidates. Candidates from groups that are under-represented in their disciplines, including women, ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities, are encouraged to apply. Research areas eligible for the fellowship include quantum chemistry, quantum communication, quantum computing, quantum information, quantum gravity, quantum materials, quantum optics, quantum sensing and most other research specialties that can legitimately be prefixed by the word “quantum.” 

Complementary programs: Applicants for the Bloch Fellowships may be eligible for other Stanford fellowship programs, such as the Stanford Science Fellows and SITP postdoctoral fellowships. They are encouraged to apply to all relevant programs.
