Young Scholars Program: Postdoctoral Fellows Application

Main content start

The SIEPR Postdoctoral Fellows program offers one- to two-year fellowships to outstanding new PhDs who have a demonstrated ability to generate high-quality, policy-relevant research in economics.

SIEPR invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in applied or policy-oriented economics to start Summer/Fall and continue for up to two years as part of the Young Scholars Program. We value diversity in backgrounds and perspectives and welcome Postdoctoral Fellows as fully contributing members of the economics community at Stanford.

SIEPR provides a competitive salary plus support for travel and research expenses.


Postdoctoral Fellows further their research on economic policy issues and actively participate in working groups, seminars, and other activities at Stanford.


Fellows should be in an applied policy research area aligning with any of SIEPR’s focal areas and must have completed their Ph.D. between September 1, 2023, and August 31, 2024. We welcome applications from individuals with a broad range of life experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds who would contribute to our community of scholars.
