The 2018 GLAM Postdoctoral Fellowship program is now open to receive applications. This annual program is aimed at recruiting young scientists of exceptional ability to work in the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials at Stanford University. Each year two new Fellows are selected based on a competition.
We seek early-career scientists of exceptional ability who will flourish in, and contribute to, the highly interactive and collaborative materials research environment of GLAM. The appointment includes 2 years of support with a competitive salary and benefits, and $5,000 annually in discretionary funds to cover research and/or travel expenses. The competition is open to both theorists and experimentalists.
Candidates are asked to submit online a curriculum vitae including publication list, and a two page research statement that details proposed research and possible collaborations within GLAM. Candidates are also required to identify one or more host faculty within GLAM, with whom they have discussed their proposed research and who will be asked to submit a nomination letter on their behalf. GLAM faculty are encouraged to nominate only one applicant. Candidates should also arrange to have two letters of reference submitted online. More details, including the application schedule and a list of frequently asked questions, is available on the GLAM webpage (https://glam.stanford.edu/glam-fellowships). For administrative queries, please contact Cynthia Sanchez (email@example.com).
The deadline for applications for the 2018-2020 competition will be 12:00noon PST on Tuesday, October 31st. We expect to be able to make offers to successful candidates in early December. Appointments are expected to begin during the period Jun – Dec, 2018.
