The Stanford Science Fellows program invites applications from outstanding graduating doctoral students and early career postdoctoral scholars (no more than three years from degree and no more than two years of prior postdoctoral experience by the start of their term) 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, Earth, and Sustainability as well as at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Stanford Science Fellows will hold primary appointments in the academic unit appropriate to their research interests. In addition to generous compensation and benefits, Fellows also receive research, travel, and relocation allowances. Fellows must be eligible and available to start their terms between July 1 and September 1, 2023. To apply, please upload the following materials by October 14, 2022: • A cover letter; • A curriculum vitae including publications, full legal name, contact information, and (expected) date of PhD, which must be received by the start of the fellowship; • Email addresses of the writers of three letters of recommendation, which must be received by October 14.
