Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Stanford Impact Labs Postdoctoral Fellowship Program recruits scholars to work with research teams across the university in pursuit of solutions to social problems. 

Fellows have the opportunity to contribute to the research goals of the lab in which they are working by engaging in collaborative, impact-focused research, while advancing their own scholarship and public impact research skills. SIL postdocs also engage in training and mentorship programming run by Stanford Impact Labs, so as to further develop the skills necessary to advance impact- and partnership-focused research.

The program is designed to elevate the scientific insights of our fellows and participating labs, and public impact scholarship more broadly, growing the community and pipeline of scholars dedicated to tackling social problems through science.

The application deadline for research teams interested in hosting a postdoctoral fellow for two years, beginning in the 2023 academic year, closed on Monday, October 31, 2022. We look forward to communicating decisions in the coming weeks.
