Postdoctoral researchers, Stanford University, Stanford, California

Stanford University is launching a new fellows program for postdoctoral researchers. I welcome your help in encouraging promising candidates to apply. The deadline for application is November 1, 2019.

The Stanford Science Fellows program is focused on incubating new directions in foundational scientific research through an interdisciplinary community of exceptional postdoctoral scholars from around the world who are driven by a sense of wonder about the natural world. The goals of this new postdoctoral training program are:

  • To deepen our understanding of the natural world by advancing and bridging disciplines in the physical, mathematical, and life sciences.
  • To provide opportunities for exceptionally qualified early-career scientists to develop academic leadership skills focused on fostering scientific discovery, acquire interdisciplinary approaches to foundational scientific research, and broaden science communication skills.
  • To recognize and support scholars who bring a diversity of perspectives, identities, and backgrounds, including those from groups who are underrepresented in the sciences.
  • To build community at Stanford around frontier research challenges.
  • To provide flexibility and resources to bold, independent thinkers to pursue their own scientific research visions.

Stanford Science Fellowships are intended for exceptional early-career postdoctoral scholars who have recently been awarded their PhD or will be awarded their PhD by the start of the fellowship and who want to pursue research and training in any natural science discipline. International scholars and those who earned their PhD at Stanford or currently hold postdoctoral positions at Stanford are encouraged to apply. 

Between 4 to 8 fellows will be selected to start appointments between July 1 and September 1, 2020. Prospective fellows will be considered by a committee of Stanford faculty from departments and schools across the natural sciences at Stanford. An explicit goal of these selection committees, in addition to selecting candidates with tremendous intellectual strength, will be the enhancement of demographic and intellectual diversity in the scientific community at Stanford.

Learn more about the Stanford Science Fellows and the application at stanfordsciencefellows.stanford.edu.

Stanford Science Fellow appointments will be for three-year terms. Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $83,000 per year, benefits, and up to $8,000 per year supplemental funds to support research and professional development.

Interested applicants must apply online (stanfordsciencefellows.stanford.edu) by November 1, 2019.

Inquiries may be directed to stanfordsciencefellows@stanford.edu.

University of California, Davis, California

I wanted to alert all of you to two faculty openings, both at the junior level in organic chemistry.

 The first is a Ladder Rank position involving teaching, service and research. We have a large department with a wide array of faculty engaged in organic chemistry, so for this position we welcome applicants from across the broad spectrum of activities that involve this sub-discipline.

 The second is a position that is in between a lecturer and a ladder rank faculty position. While we have struggled with agreeing on a succinct title, Lecturers with the Potential for Security of Employment (LPSOEs) are faculty who, as members of our Academic Senate, are on a parallel career track to  Ladder Rank faculty (such as the position above), i.e. with a similar timeline to advance to LSOE at both associate and full levels and a similar salary scale. Faculty in this position are expected to engage in teaching, service and creative activities that can draw from broad areas of scholarship but do not involve laboratory research or supervising graduate students. The teaching load is intermediate between ladder rank faculty and our continuing lecturers, the latter of whom only teach (i.e. no service or creative activities/research). Our faculty is currently composed of approximately* 40 ladder rank faculty and 2 LPSOEs.

The Center for Statistics and Machine Learning’s DataX Fund supports the hiring of six data scientists who will create and improve data-analysis software to operate at large scale, leading to faster discovery, wider impact and greater continuity.

These data scientists will work in faculty-led, collaborative, multidisciplinary environments, and leverage their skills to advance the progress of data-driven scientific discovery. Three research areas are of particular interest:

  • Catalysis – led by the Department of Chemistry, in collaboration with other departments including Chemical Engineering, Molecular Biology, and Computer Science.
  • Biomedical Data Science – led by the Department of Computer Science, in collaboration with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton Neuroscience Institute, and additional engineering departments.

The John Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Clinical Chemistry

I am hoping to make information available to the graduate students in your department about an opportunity at Johns Hopkins University School Of Medicine for post-doctoral training in the field of Clinical Chemistry. The post-doctoral fellowship is clinically-geared and focuses on both clinical laboratory service and translational research projects.  In recent years, successful fellows have had a strong, yet diverse background in physical and biological sciences, including, but not limited to, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biomedical engineering. 

 The application process begins the September prior to the start of the fellowship (July 1), so the group we most want to reach is students that are 1-2 years from completing their dissertation and defense.
