Stanford PRISM

Postdoctoral Recruitment Initiative in Science and Medicine: Standford PRISM

Stanford PRISM
PRISM (Postdoctoral Recruitment Initiative in Science and Medicine) is an opportunity for select late-stage graduate students from broadly diverse backgrounds to explore postdoctoral training at Stanford, including interviewing with potential mentors, getting the inside scoop on postdoctoral training at Stanford from current postdocs, and accessing professional development to score the best postdoc for them. The purpose of this program is to encourage those who might not currently consider a postdoctoral position at Stanford to get a first-hand look at whether Stanford might be a good fit for them. Our goal is to match excellent trainees to excellent mentors at Stanford.

• Discuss shared research interests with faculty
• Meet current Stanford postdocs
• Get the inside scoop on postdoctoral training
• Learn how to get the right postdoc for you

Who Should Apply:
Advanced graduate students who:
• expect to complete their PhD in 2020-2021
• wish to continue their training as postdoctoral scholars

This opportunity is open to all. We especially encourage those from backgrounds underrepresented in academia to apply, including but not limited to: African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Filipinos, those with disabilities, first generation college-goers, those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, and those underrepresented on the basis of gender identity or expression or sexual orientation. Applications consist of an application form, a CV, a research statement, a recommendation from your graduate advisor, and the names of up to 6 potential mentors at Stanford.
