Postdoctoral Fellows Program

The King Center on Global Development’s Postdoctoral Fellows Program offers fellowships to outstanding new PhDs who have a demonstrated ability to generate high-quality, policy-relevant research on critical issues related to global development. 

We invite applications for multidisciplinary postdoctoral fellowships to start summer/fall 2020 for one year (and will consider applications for two years). The King Center’s postdoctoral fellows program is intended for promising new and recent PhD recipients—coming from fields such as computer science, earth systems science, economics, engineering, health policy, political science, and sociology—to pursue policy relevant research on topics related to critical issues for international development and poverty alleviation.

The King Center’s postdoctoral fellows will be active members of the community of development researchers at Stanford University. The King Center provides a competitive salary plus support for travel and research expenses.

The application is now closed. If you already applied and would like to access the application portal, please login here
