Stanford Energy Post-doctoral Fellowship

The goal of the Stanford Energy Postdoctoral Fellowship is to bring together the brightest minds in energy from around the world to develop knowledge necessary to realize a vision of an affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy system. Fellows will work with at least two faculty members from different academic departments and interact with other fellows across the energy research spectrum: from science and engineering to policy and economics. As a result, fellows early in their careers can develop a more holistic view of the energy transition and sustainability, broaden their base of knowledge, or pursue a new area of expertise. 

The application deadline is typically in early October.
