The goals of the Stanford Science Fellows program are:
As independent postdoctoral scholars, Stanford Science Fellows will have opportunities to work with multiple faculty and use facilities within Stanford’s Schools of Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Earth, as well as at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
A committee of dedicated Stanford faculty from departments across the natural sciences will select the fellows and afterward regularly meet with them to provide mentorship and assistance throughout the duration of the fellowship. The program will include community-building activities to foster career development and leadership skills, and workshops, seminars, informal lunches and dinners, and discussions with Stanford faculty and visitors on current topics throughout the natural sciences. Fellows will work with traditional and modern media, in small groups and one-on-one with writers and guest speakers, to develop skills that will enable them to become more effective science educators and communicators.
