Interdisciplinary Scholar Awards, Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity

Abstract / Description: 

We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2018 Stanford Neurosciences Institute Interdisciplinary Scholar Awards.

These awards provide funding to extraordinary postdoctoral scientists at Stanford University engaging in highly interdisciplinary research in the neurosciences broadly defined.

Selected scholars will be provided funding for two years, to be utilized for payments toward tuition, salary, and health benefits. In addition, our scholars meet for quarterly luncheons, visit each others' labs to learn about different areas of study and research techniques, develop skills to communicate with a non-scientific audience, and present "elevator pitches" of their research aims and accomplishments to the Executive Committee.


  • Candidates in a variety of disciplines will be considered: basic and clinical neurosciences, biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, engineers, and experts in human behavior from the fields of education, law, business, and humanities.
  • Women and under-represented minority postdocs are encouraged to apply.
  • Applications are due on August 28, 2017 and the awardees will be announced in December 2017.
