Are you considering continuing your training as a postdoc? Applications are now open for two Stanford programs committed to supporting a thriving, diverse postdoc population:

  • Stanford PRISM invites graduate students from any field to explore postdoctoral training at Stanford. PRISM candidates visit Stanford’s campus to meet with faculty and current postdocs to consider whether Stanford is a good fit for their next step.
  • The Propel Postdoctoral Scholars program is for incoming and early postdocs in the biosciences at Stanford who have a strong desire to become faculty.

Eligible applicants may apply to either or both programs. Please see below for further details.

Applications are NOW OPEN for the May 2024 PRISM visit, deadline February 25, 2024.

#StanfordPRISM invites graduate students from all fields and backgrounds, especially those from the broad spectrum of identities that are underrepresented in academia, to consider Stanford for postdoctoral training. Stanford has one of the largest postdoc populations in the country and a strong commitment to helping postdocs succeed and thrive. Through PRISM, cohorts of students visit Stanford to interview with faculty, connect with current postdocs, and learn about postdoctoral training.

Review our guidance on preparing a successful application and connecting with potential mentors, and contact the PRISM team if you have any questions.
