Stanford PRISM

an IBP member program

Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Description:
PRISM (Postdoctoral Recruitment Initiative in Science and Medicine) is an opportunity for select late-stage graduate students from broadly diverse backgrounds to explore postdoctoral training at Stanford, including interviewing with potential mentors, getting the inside scoop on postdoctoral training at Stanford from current postdocs, and accessing professional development to score the best postdoc for them. The purpose of this program is to encourage those who might not currently consider a postdoctoral position at Stanford to get a first-hand look at whether Stanford might be a good fit for them. Our goal is to match excellent trainees to excellent mentors at Stanford.

This opportunity is open to all. We especially encourage those from backgrounds underrepresented in academia to apply, including but not limited to: African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Filipinos, those with disabilities, first generation college-goers, those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, and those underrepresented on the basis of gender identity or expression or sexual orientation. Applications consist of an application form, a CV, a research statement, a recommendation from your graduate advisor, and the names of up to 6 potential mentors at Stanford.

Note: PRISM will be held ONLINE only for the October 2020 cohort.


Application Deadline: 9/15/2020
