Description:
As part of advancing Stanford University's IDEAL vision and commitment to diversity (broadly defined) among its faculty, students, and staff, the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University (Stanford Earth) has established the Stanford Earth Postdoctoral Fellows program. This fellowship will support two outstanding scholars in the fields of Earth, energy, and environmental sciences, as well as other emerging fields in this area, whose research and mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students will contribute to diversity, equity, inclusion and scientific excellence within the school.

Stanford Earth Postdoctoral fellows will receive fellowship support and faculty mentoring and will participate in professional development programs as part of the Stanford Earth community. The fellowship carries an annual stipend of $83,000 for up to two years and includes a research stipend of $10,000/year.

Candidates are encouraged to reach out to potential faculty mentors whose research aligns with their interests. We especially seek to attract applications from promising scholars from underrepresented backgrounds in STEM as well as those who are in emerging areas of Earth, Energy, and Environmental sciences that intersect with issues of human impact and equity. Applicants whose work intersects with issues of race and ethnicity are also encouraged to apply to the IDEAL Provostial Early Fellows program. Applicants should send a cover letter, current CV, contact information for 2 references, and a Research Statement to earthpostdoc@stanford.edu

All are welcome to apply, and candidates will be evaluated based on their potential to support the school's commitment to diversity and research excellence, as well as a faculty mentor's ability to support the candidates' research goals and to advance an inclusive working environment in the school. Please visit the website for more information.
