General Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Stanford PHS mission is to improve individual and population health by bringing together diverse disciplines and data to understand and address social, environmental, behavioral, and biological factors on a global scale. To advance our mission, our center offers valuable research resources, including: access to unique databases, funding and research opportunities, networking events and seminars, and mentoring for trainees and fellows. 

PHS trainees are comprised of individuals with training and experience in epidemiology, basic science, computational biology, economics, social sciences, and clinical trials research. The fellowship foci include: health outcomes, rigorous controlled research approaches, mechanisms of disease, health care, social disadvantage, and/or disparities. PHS postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to join the network of population health researchers and gain access to biospecimen banks, large healthcare claims databases, and other health data resources.

In addition to working with your primary faculty member, as a PHS fellow, you have the opportunity to engage with all of the members of our faculty committee and with the other postdocs. We meet regularly to discuss professional development topics (career paths, the job search, networking, etc.), to review research resources (data, grant and manuscript writing, etc.), and to provide an opportunity to receive feedback on research in progress.
