Biotechnology Innovation & International Security Fellowships

Stanford University is seeking Biotechnology Innovation & International Security Fellows for 1-year positions, renewable for a second year. 

Fellows should propose projects related to innovations in biological science and technology and their interactions with a shifting policy and international security landscape. Fellows will be affiliated with Bio Policy & Leadership in Society (Bio.Polis) - a strategic initiative of the Department of Bioengineering in partnership with the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at Stanford University. Fellows will be housed at and have the opportunity to participate in the larger fellowship program and community at CISAC. We welcome fellows from a wide range of backgrounds, including biological science and engineering, data science and the social sciences. Fellows will be mentored by one or more faculty at Stanford, including faculty affiliated with CISAC and the Department of Bioengineering.

Although we are primarily seeking postdoctoral fellows, we are open to a range of career stages, so please reach out if interested. We especially encourage applicants from underrepresented backgrounds and communities.

Applications are now being accepted until December 2, 2022. More details and a link to apply can be found on the CISAC Fellowship page.
