The Faculty Recruitment Program helps persuade outstanding faculty candidates, whose research goals are particularly well-suited to the overall mission of the Beckman Center, to join the Stanford faculty.
Beckman Center funds have been used successfully to bring faculty members to the School of Medicine
Competition for the most outstanding researchers is keen, and the innovative services and technologies provided by the Beckman Center offer a strong incentive to join the scientific community at Stanford.
Much of the burden of recruiting is the expense of setting up a new laboratory, including renovations and the purchase of new equipment. We provide crucial start-up funds to help cover these costs and that of hiring technical expertise to get the new research enterprise off the ground.
