Postdoctoral Program


Scientists In Training

Postdoctoral fellows are an integral part of the Chemical and Systems Biology community, playing active roles in its research and training activities. Fellows join the Chemical and Systems Biology postdoctoral program through individual laboratories, and interested applicants should contact faculty members directly.

Upon entry into the Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, each postdoctoral fellow works with a Postdoctoral Fellow Advisory Committee consisting of his/her faculty sponsor and two other Stanford professors. He/she meets at least annually with the Committee to discuss research progress and career development goals. Postdoctoral fellows also present their work each academic year at weekly “pizza talks” and the Department’s three-day fall retreat, and individuals interested in translational medicine can participate in the Stanford SPARK Program.

Campus Resources

In addition to these departmental activities, Chemical and Systems Biology postdoctoral fellows have access to the myriad of resources available through the Stanford Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. This office provides information on educational programs, fellowship opportunities, career planning services, and health benefits.
