Pandemic Preparedness Hub Postdoctoral Fellows Program

Posted by on Friday, June 9, 2023 in Announcements .


Stanford University is recruiting outstanding postdoctoral fellows for a fellowship in Pandemic Preparedness. This interdisciplinary fellowship will train recent doctoral graduates from any field who would like to pursue a career in advancing science to prevent or mitigate infectious disease pandemics. Fellows may work with any Stanford faculty members who are affiliated with the new Pandemic Preparedness Hub. Relevant disciplines may include epidemiology, community health, ecology, immunology, clinical-translational science, genetics, biomedical data sciences and health policy. Trainees who have trained in other disciplines and would like to transition their career to focus on infectious diseases are encouraged to apply and should demonstrate their commitment to this path. Each fellow will create a professional development plan with a professional mentorship team that includes their scientific mentor and senior faculty in the Pandemic Preparedness Hub. Faculty and fellows will convene regularly to share their work and identify opportunities for synergies across disciplines. In addition to salary and benefits, each fellow will research a research fund to utilize for pursuit of their own ideas.


  • Competitive salary and benefits for two years
  • A research budget for each fellow for two years
  • Senior faculty mentorship, professional development, and networking support
  • A diverse community of scholars with common professional interests and value


  • M.D. within 3 years of completion of clinical training or Ph.D. within 3 years of graduation as of September 1, 2024


To apply, please submit a 500 – 1000 word personal statement that describes your experience, interests, and goals for a fellowship with the Pandemic Preparedness Hub via our online form. For trainees who are currently working in a research lab, the Pandemic Preparedness Hub Fellowship should support a new research direction, training and project that is fundamentally distinct from the candidate’s existing research; continuation of existing projects will not be supported. Please indicate how your training and research plans will represent new areas of research, training and professional growth.
