The Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS) invites promising new scholars to Stanford University for 1 year appointments (renewable once, for total of two years) as postdoctoral fellows.  

Each fellow will be primarily affiliated either with the Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL) or the Program on Democracy and the Internet (PDI) at Stanford PACS. Fellows may potentially be cross-affiliated with another department or school at Stanford University depending on their specific disciplinary focus.

The annual fellowship stipend is $70,000, plus the standard benefits that postdoctoral fellows at Stanford University receive, including health insurance and travel funds. The fellowship program falls under U.S. Immigration J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa activities.

The start date of the fellowship will be September 2022, unless otherwise agreed. To assume a postdoctoral fellowship, scholars must have a PhD in hand by July 1, 2022. We cannot consider applications from scholars who earned a PhD earlier than September 1, 2019.

We encourage applications from candidates representing a broad range of disciplines including the social sciences, humanities, law, computer science and engineering.
