Stanford Science Fellowships are intended for exceptional early career scientists with great promise who have recently been awarded their PhD (within three years of starting fellowship, but with no more than two years of prior postdoctoral experience) or will be awarded their PhD by the start of the fellowship. Candidates are sought who intend to pursue experimental and/or theoretical research in any natural science discipline. Fellows will hold primary appointments in an academic unit in any participating school appropriate to their research interests. Successful candidates will have a strong record of scientific achievement, clear intellectual drive to advance scientific understanding, and a commitment to engage collaboratively with a diverse community of scholars and transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. Eight to ten fellows will be selected to start appointments between July 1 and September 1, 2020. International scholars are eligible to apply. Applications must be submitted by November 1, 2019.
The Dekas Geomicrobiology Laboratory at Stanford University seeks two highly motivated postdoctoral researchers. Each successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in a related field, a strong publication record, research experience in microbial ecology, a desire to learn/use nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (nanoSIMS) and specific expertise as indicated in the announcement. Interested candidates should send a complete CV, cover letter, and a list of three professional references to Dr. Anne Dekas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin on December 20, 2017, after which applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
