The Stanford King Center on Global Development Postdoctoral Fellows program offers one-year (and will consider two-year) fellowships to outstanding new PhDs (with degrees conferred in 2018 or later) who have a demonstrated ability to generate high-quality, policy-relevant research on critical issues related to global development and poverty alleviation. The multi-disciplinary program offers a competitive stipend, as well as support for travel and research expenses. Postdoctoral Fellows have no teaching responsibilities and minimal administrative duties.
