Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)
Postdoc & Early Career
Faculty & Administrators

PRISM is open to graduate students from all backgrounds and in all fields, though we especially encourage applicants from the broad spectrum of identities that are underrepresented in academia to apply. Through PRISM, students visit campus to explore the postdoc training environment, build relationships with faculty, and determine whether advanced training at Stanford would support their career goals.

Stanford PRISM was created to bring together excellent graduate students from a variety of backgrounds and excellent postdoctoral mentors. At Stanford, postdocs work alongside top scientists and simultaneously develop their professional skills, explore career options, and prepare for independent careers. With one of the largest postdoc populations in the country and a strong commitment to making the postdoc experience the best it can be, we hope you consider this opportunity.

Eligible applicants are encouraged to contact the PRISM Team for guidance on preparing a successful application and connecting with potential mentors.
