Top 10 Reasons to Select Stanford for Postdoctoral Training

1. A world-class academic environment with innovative research of the highest caliber and facilities that define tomorrow's "state-of-the-art" in countless disciplines.

2. An almost palpable energy and excitement that come from participating in ground-breaking discoveries.

3. An exceptionally large and diverse community of postdoctoral scholars - close to 2,000 university-wide - that complements the tremendous strength to be found in our faculty, staff, and graduate and undergraduate students.

4. A single academic campus where the humanities, sciences, medicine, law, business, and engineering are all side-by-side with the resulting cross-fertilization that can only happen with such close proximity.

5. A physical campus of over 8,000 acres (3,500 hectares) with miles of trails for running and walking, world-class sports facilities, outdoor and indoor art that helps feed the soul, and an "industrial park" where many high-tech companies (e.g., Hewlett-Packard) have had their start and still maintain a large presence (the campus is in fact the birthplace of Silicon Valley).

6. A university-wide Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (one of the first in the country) and a dynamic postdoctoral association (SURPAS) and several postdoctoral organizations and groups.

7. A most impressive record of former postdoctoral scholars who have gone on to leadership positions in academia, industry, and policy worldwide.

8. Forty-five minutes from San Francisco and our many colleagues at UCSF, and an hour to UC Berkeley (ties with these and other institutions are many and close).

9. A diverse local community with a range of housing options and many opportunities for eating out, movies, and the like.

10. And, for those times when you really want a break, you can go watch Stanford's many nationally ranked teams who have won 81 NCAA Championships in women's and men's basketball, baseball, water polo, golf, track, football, tennis, volleyball, and swimming.
